Excellent site for all levels of scuba divers. I often take my Pacific NW Fish and Invertebrate ID students to this site whenever possible (currents willing) because of the abundance of fish and invertebrate life here. As is the case with many Pacific NW sites, there are more fish here in spring/summer/early fall than other times of the year. Watch the currents! Use the North End Tacoma Narrows CURRENT (not tide) charts to plan your visit. Plan your dive around slack current. Spend much of your time exploring in and around the pilings, and if the current exchange is SMALL that day, you can attempt to head south towards the very small wall to see the wolf eel. Depth is shallow, and diving on a higher tide will prevent a walk into the water over slippery rocks. So, check both the tide AND current charts for this site when planning your dive. We have seen unusual things at this site we've never seen at any other site. (like Pile Perch displaying interesting mating behaviors and colors)
