A popular Nanoose Bay dive site was closed this weekend after the death of a scuba diver. But it’s not yet clear what went wrong.
It happened at the Tyee Cove dive site, which is about half an hour north of Nanaimo.
Divers trying to use the site yesterday were told that police didn’t want anyone diving there until all the victim’s gear had been retrieved. RCMP wouldn’t comment on the incident but CHEK News has learned the victim is a man from Alberta.
Police say more information should be available tomorrow.
