Nice Dive, wilderness feeling. The reefs has lots of life. Right at the first junction in Ft. Flagler, road to pier goes down between the bathroom and the gun emplacement. Easy beach access. Enter and go out between and pilings. Reefs are left, off and out from pier. Rope to reefs (laying on bottom) angles to left between 7 & 8th piling after the break in the walkway to pier. Current can be strong. Slack, and ebbing tide for visibility is best. Network of ropes and concrete reef gives lots of hand holds if you feel you need them. Reefs are in 40 to 50 fsw. Leave air to explore the pier. Note the barge load of turn of century plumbing off the pier. Other good sites and air in Ft Townsend. Fort Flagler has lots to see. Bring a bike to get to the best bunkers and gun emplacements.
