Snorkeling and Scuba Diving at Mukilteo Oil Dock
The Oil Dock is actually the most interesting dive in this area. It is a bit of a hike to get to the entry point, but well worth it just to be able to explore the pilings of this huge structure.<br><br>*** CLOSED TO DIVING ***<br>SEE THE REVIEW OF 6/11/2015 BELOW<br> Take exit 189 off I-5 in Everett, and head West on 526. Then head North on 525. Follow signs to the Mukilteo Ferry. Take a right at the intersection just after you pass of over the railroad tracks. Just past the hotel on your left, turn right, then turn left before you reach the tracks again. Drive North and parallel to the coast, keeping the tracks to your right-- your road will turn to a heavily potted, dirt road. Continue on until you reach the dirt parking area.

We did this from the north and it's a long long hike. The swim wasn't bad. We dove at slack so currents weren't a problem but it's a full moon beware if you aren't at slack. Tons of crabs. When I swam out to the dock and dropped down I was shocked at the number of crabs there. It reminded me of Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom when he saw all those snakes on the floor. "Why is the floor moving?"
