Remembering Jim Willoughby

We were also made aware this weekend of the passing of Jim Willoughby, another ocean pioneer. Jim was a diver, teacher, SCUBA instructor, filmmaker and adventurer.

He was one of British Columbia’s foremost SCUBA divers. His stories and adventures were legendary. He trained thousands of local SCUBA divers and logged over ten thousand personal dives.

 Jim was friends with Jacques Cousteau and often accompanied him on dives in the Pacific Northwest. He was a friend, a mentor and a respected professional.

 Jim will be missed.
