I have dove Edmonds Underwater park many times. My last dive there was on 11-24-06. Each time there is something new to see! The triumph is fun to check out. This was the first manmade reef structure I dove at. Tube hinge is another good place you should plan to see. Check out the map on the restroom, and follow the handy lines which have so kindly been placed throughout the park. The best part about Edmonds are the large lingcod. Cabezon are frequent, as well as the usual northwest marine life. On my first dry suit dive here (that was a day to remember), my buddy and I saw a small dogfish or whatever they are called…it looked shark like. This is definitely one of those places every Northwest diver should at least check out once. There are quality facilities, including restroom/changing room, outdoor shower, and parking (Saturdays you almost have to get here before the Sun comes up). UWS is just up the street for air fills etc. I would consider this my "home" dive site, because I live less than 10 minutes away, and recommend it to any diver. It may seem a bit easy, since it is shallow (never more than 40fsw it seems) and without much current. But I don't have to dive a crazy wall with ripping water to prove my diving abilities or enjoyment of the sport. I just give the friendly lingcod the peace sign and everyone's chill. (This is a marine preserve, so the lingcod are getting huge here)
