Evaluation

*Average:    2.79
23 Apr. 16 We dove down to the Geodome. It's straight out from the beach. There's a rope around 20fsw (I'm sure it was installed for students on check dives) and then the dome sit's around 50-60fsw. If you can't find it, turn north until you come to the pipe from NOAA. Drop down until you see the toilet and head south. You'll run right into it. Largest sea cucumbers I've ever seen. Some were over 1' long and there were lots of them. Big yellow rock fish and a few small ones hanging upside down on the corners of the geodome. Water was 48 degrees and vis was about 25'. The T dock itself is now gone. It was removed a few months ago. So, along with it are all the big crabs, rat fish, and a host of other species of marine life. Pay parking was also added. There are still a few free spots if you get lucky. According to a local resident who was visiting with us, it's to make room for the new ferry terminal. I googled it. Below is a link to a story in the Everett WA Herald dated 6 June 2013 and a few links from WA State Ferry's web site itself. I just hope we can still dive this spot once the new terminal is built. Every time we dive here, we eat at Ivar's, Arnie's, Diamond Knot Brewery or Brooklyn Bros Pizzeria. Diving burns the calories and it's nice to grab something to eat before we head home. We come down from Ferndale, Blaine and Lynden.
