Publication date

Closing date and time 2023/02/03 13:00 EST



    Provide boat chartering services, including a boat captain to operate the vessel, to facilitate scuba dive surveys and experiment installation within Prince Rupert Harbour and Chatham Sound. This also includes scuba dive tanks and air fills in preparation for each day’s dive activities.

    The completion of this contract will provide daily pick ups of divers at the local dock, transport to dive sites, dive tending while divers are conducting surveys underwater, and transport back to the dock at the completion of each dive day.

    Additionally, the charter vessel will be required to facilitate the installation of an underwater telemetry array at the northern entrance to Prince Rupert Harbour.


    This work contributes to the Coastal Environmental Baseline Program’s mandate of generating a baseline understanding of the key transportation centers on British Columbia’s coast – Vancouver Harbour and Prince Rupert Harbour. Specifically, this work falls within the subtidal component of this program, where ecological data is to be collected by divers within each port and used to assess species diversity, habitat associations, and ecosystem vulnerability. This contract will also facilitate the completion of a Canadian Science Research Fund project studying movement behaviour of sea urchins.

    Duration of contract: The Work is to be performed during the period of Contract Award until November 30th, 2023.
