Evaluation

*Average:    4.54
This is about the best shore diving spot in Washington. There's the potential for surf, but currents are actually pretty minimal in close to shore. The kelp beds are spectacular and very lively, with oodles of invertebrates and loads of small fish. Despite its marine reserve status, large fish are not common. Despite the local guidebooks current planning descriptions, I have dove here without regard to currents. You're more likely to have a problem with surf and/or surge. Diving before the summer afternoon sea breeze comes up is helpful.
