Bear Cove is a bit past Herring Cove. There's a short unpaved road leading down to the water. The access road (part of a public park) has a metal post blocking access to vehicles (like at McKenzie Bight), but millions of years of evolution allowed us to figure out that the post was easily removable. Anyway, the reason we came here is the wreck of an old schooner from the 1800's. From the end of the trail we swam out and a bit to the right. The bottom was a mix of rocky reefs and huge boulders. By the way, these boulders (glacial erratics) are all over the bottom at just about every local dive site. Eventually the rocks ended and there was a sandy area around 50-60 feet deep. Visibility was 20-30 feet. What was left of the wreck was a section of planks and beams held together by big copper bolts. It looked like a big raft lying flat on the sand. There were several fish (local perch) that would swim up to look in our masks for some reason. I made the mistake of using an actual store-bought underwater camera strobe so of course it leaked and was useless for most of the dive. Those fish kept begging me to take their pictures, but I was helpless to the winds of fate and was stuck taking mostly monochrome natural-light photos. I later made a proper, civilized home-made strobe for the dives at Birchy Head and considered it a lesson learned. After we left the water we looked back and saw a group of seals playing right where we had been diving. I'm glad I didn't see them underwater without the means to take decent pictures.
