On Saturday, Feb 23, 2013 a historic dive exploration was undertaken and completed. Two divers descended onto the top of the Lions Bay seamount in an endeavor to accomplish a dive never before known or attempted. At 10:24am Saturday morning trimix divers Hamish Tweed and Chris Straub touched the top of the seamount 218 ft down. Supported by a team of 22; including 4 safety divers, a medical doctor, two dive vessels, 5 HD video cameras above and below the surface and the Vancouver Sun reporter observing, the dive was successfully achieved. The deep dive team returned with remarkable HD video shots of the incredibly large glass sponge, forming a bioherm on the top of the pinnacle. This expedition dive was organized and lead by Glenn Dennison under the auspices of the Marine Life Sanctuaries Society and Underwater Council of BC banners.
