Canada's west coast metropolis of Vancouver is home-base to an experienced and professional roster of dedicated underwater film technicians . These talented and energetic people consistently deliver exciting underwater film and HDTV footage for the world-wide film industry.

Feature film production in Vancouver is enhanced with an amazing 450 thousand gallon filming tank. Completely portable, this 75 foot diameter, 16 foot deep steel tank can be easily installed in many of Vancouver's modern engineered sound stages. Several other portable tank sizes are available depending on script requirements and other variables.

Vancouver also has hundreds of private and public pools to accomodate a wide variety of looks and budgets.

Our production zone includes the natural beauty of miles upon miles of photogenic marine coastline. Laying on the seabed of our impressive underwater backlot are several very photogenic decommissioned navy warships These meticulously prepared artificial reefs have already hosted several dramatic underwater productions. We even have a preserved Boeing 737 waiting in the shallow depths for lights, camera and action. On April 4, 2015 the Artificial Reef Society of BC sank the latest addition to their fleet of re-conditioned warships. The 366 foot long HMCS Annapolis is now on the seabed right in Vancouver's back yard. This is the closest sunken wreck to Vancouver of any of the ships the ARSBC has converted to artificial reefs and will become a valuable asset to the film industry of BC.

Vancouver's world-class underwater film production capabilities and underwater film technicians are ready to bring your vision to life.
