Did this dive once before moving away from the area years ago. It's a bit of a swim out to depth. Kind of a mildly interesting dive, going from pier post to pier post in low viz. It was the first time I'd done that, kinda neat. Occasional crab, garbage and sometimes a free crab-pot can be found (there was one the day we dove with no rope attached). There are crab fishermen on the pier who will give you stink-eye because they think you are after their crabs in their pots, so I wouldn't crab here. Little do they know that you'll see more crabs outside the pots than inside...help them out if you find any by putting them in the pots. Lots of Geoducks can be found here. Pick up a razor clam shell and fan deeply (helps if there is a tide to carry away the silt) around the necks which stick an inch or two above the surface of the muck and you might be able to get yourself a 3-5 lb supply of clam chowder meat.
