Snorkeling and Scuba Diving at Don Armini Ramp

Don Armini Ramp offers an excellent selection of sights for the adventurer: the Old Saw Mill is to the left, bottles and other treasures from the early Seattle settlement days are to the right, and plenty of marine life in between! Use your dive flag, and watch out for boat traffic, of course. Just South of downtown Seattle, take the West Seattle Bridge to hop over to West Seattle. Just before the bridge ends, make a right onto Harbor Ave SW. Drive for about a mile to the North, and you'll see the landmarks in the photos.

Watch your step as you make your way down the ramp-- it can be quite slippery. You'll find parking in the lot or along side the street. The Old Saw Mill is to the right (NW) in the picture. Look for the pilings at low tide.

Nice dive, stay shallow for best life. Watch for ya-hoos in boats. this is a nice change of pace from cove 1 or 2 at seacrest. Grab a drink at Salty's afterward.

This is an active boat ramp! So that means use caution when diving here. Decide which side of the launch you want to dive and stick to it. Do not cross the boat launch. I believe there are rules against diving within so many feet of a live boat launch. So keep that in mind. There are rock walls extending in both directions of this launch. The best thing to do is not enter at the launch, but to the south, at the very end of the parking lot. Try to avoid ascending far from shore, come up the shore line. This can be a decent dive if done properly.
