*Average:    3.10
I dive this spot occasionally because it is somewhat sheltered from a north wind. If I am determined to get into the water, it is accessible when others aren't. The scattered debris is supposedly from the wooden steamship "Utopia" which was grounded and then burned in order to salvage the metal from it. There are some remnants of an effort to start an artificial reef. I have seen lingcod, cabezon, crab, and the normal assortment of sea stars and nudibranchs. Since the Edmonds Oil Dock is nearby, it is a much preferable dive.
