Overview of Brooks Cove

Brooks Cove

Sunshine Coast, BC


Brooks Cove is for the more advanced diver. You'll have quite the swim to get to the prime diving spots, but the effort will be worth it. With depths to over 100 feet, the water clarity will be spectacular!

Directions: At 1.3km North of Halfmoon Bay, turn left onto Brooks Road, and follow the signs to Smuggler Cove.

09/14/2004 Richard (Avg: 2.43 Review) - My wife and I tried to dive this site. It's a really long swim, I'd guess 4-500 meters. It's not a real pleasant either since many homes on the bluff discharge (presumably sewage) via pipes into this bay - yuck. The combination means - don't waste your time/air/money/energy here. The reef may be great, if you can get there…
