Yesterday morning five of us went snorkelling at Moses Point in North Saanich, seeking shelter from the forecast southeast wind and a time of minimal current in Satellite Channel.
Everything went smoothly with very calm water and only the tiniest hint of current. The vertical visibility varied from 5 to 7 metres and the water temperature was 11 C.
For anyone planning to go there, please be cautious on the smooth rounded rock at the base of the stairs. Although the surface feels rough to the touch, it is easy to slip on the steep part even when it’s dry. Wetsuit boots do not have as much grip as hiking boots.
