Salt Creek is a dive site that offers many rewards for a diver that looks for the out of the way dive site. I started diving here in winter of 1978 have dove this site in all 4 seasons. It can be a challenge to dive here. The surge can toss you around or sweep you across the bottom. But if you watch the weather conditions and tides you can enjoyable dive. I like starting at the east end by the kitchen and heading west and coming out on Tongue Point. The reef with the kelp beds are is so spectacular in the spring with all of the new fishes swimming in schools. It is so colorful here like being in some aquarium seen. The depth is around 25-35 feet all the way. The exit is nice, and if you time the swell you can be standing up with your fins in your hand and walk out. Enjoy your dive.

I have dove this site several times with my dive buddy Mike Shea. This site isn't for beginner divers. You need to have good compass navigations skills. Boat traffic can be heavy at times. Plenty to see here with the old bridge broken up lying on the bottom, some are as large a semi trucks. Photography is at every turn here. Fishes of all sizes and species to be expected. I have both beach entries along with boat dives, boat by far best. You need to plan this dive with the tide in mind. The entire Hood Canal drains through this passage you can get fast current here. Take a dive light and enjoy the dive.
