Evaluation

*Average:    3.25
Also knows as Alki Junkyard. Be careful of the current in this area. Dives farther south (Seacrest etc) in Alki are not effected by currents, but this location can get very bad if you miscalculate. The only worthwhile spot to dive is at the end of the walkway before the condos start. Dive locations down near the cement wall are desert dives and are mainly done for classes and such things (although a good place to find skates). Over the years divers have created artificial reefs using misc things (computers, toilets, shopping carts, engines, and many other objects). There are even some rope trails going in recently to help guide you around. If done during slack this is a good beginner dive. Be sure to spend some time in the eel grass on the way back spotting critters you might not otherwise see (clingfish and such).
