There's not a lot of diversity of life at this site, but the numbers make up for it. The entire seafloor seems to be a mass of crawling crabs, and there were more spotted ratfish than I've seen at any other site. Most of the creatures seemed to prefer the north (far) side of the dock. Poke around on the pilings for sculpin. Shore entry here is very easy, using the Mukilteo T-Dock access. It's a long surface swim/walk in water out to the fuel dock (about 10-15 mins). We entered at high tide slack water, and at the end of our dive the current was helping the return swim, which was very nice!
