• Depth: approx 120 ft
The Saskatchewan sunk on June 14, 1997 on the east side of Snake Island.
It’s a fabulous artificial reef all 366 ft. It was the first of three artificial reefs that have been sunk in the Nanaimo area. It sits in about 120 feet of water sitting upright.
There are three buoys, one at the bow, stern and mid-ship.
There are holes cut into the ship for ease of access for certified wreck divers. The life that has grown on the ship in the past 8 years has added superb wreck ambiance. I enjoy taking my camera with me when we dive on this ship. You most likely will see massive ling cod and if you’re lucky maybe a seal. In my opinion this ship has the most character of the wrecks we have here.
