Diving in Kelp Forest

Kelp forests can grow up to 30 metres in height and shelter a wide range of species within different layers of the forest. The "canopy" of the kelp forest is visible from the sea surface and is made up of the bulbs and fronds of bull kelp and giant kelp. These kelp forests can be found in Gwaii Haanas National Marine Conservation Area Reserve and Haida Heritage Site.
