Lone Tree Island

Sunshine Coast, BC


Submitted By:

Submitter Comments:
A small island, unofficially known as "lone tree island" (because it has one tree), makes up this dive site. Looking from the entry point, the left side of the island has a small reef with some wolf eels. The middle of the island has some oyster beds and lot of fish. The site has little current to worry about, but boat traffic can be heavy.

 From Powell River, take highway 101 north towards Lund. Before you get to Lund you should hit a gravel turnoff, with a school and signs for Lund trailer park on the corner. If you hit the turnoff for Lund itself you've gone too far. Turn left onto this road, and then turn right at the fire station. Follow the road until it ends (less then 1km); park at the end of the road. To the left of the parking area is a trail through the trees which goes down to the water. Follow this trail to the entry; be careful to avoid walking onto the private properties which line this pathway.

11/10/2020 Sylvie (Avg: 4.43 Review) - I loved diving lone tree, I prefer this site over mermaid cove. We saw so many different kinds of fish, some that I have never seen before. We saw a big wolf eel that was partly out of his den, sea lions, so many nudibranches. Beautiful site. There are no washrooms or change rooms. It's a bit of a walk down hill to get to the site but not too bad. Beware of sudden surges. On our first dive, the water was very calm, we surfaced a bit further than planned and it suddenly got very choppy, some good waves hitting us. There is also boat traffic. Definitely recommend an SMB. The best route is to dive around the left side of the island, reach the second cable and then come back the same way. I'd recommend making sure you can make it back close to shore in case the sea conditions get choppy.

05/10/2006 Bryan Heit (Avg: 3.29 Review) - An easy dive with a lot to see. The wolf eels are less tame then those at other sites and don't readily approach divers. As mentioned in the description, this site is near a marina, so fly a flag and keep an eye out for boaters.
