Pretty good site. This site seems better at high tide (less walking!!) We found a small octopus at the bottom of the mermaid. We also met up with a small lingcod who followed us though about 1/2 of our dive. (liked the camera. This is a pretty easy dive. Use your compass to get to the mermaid from underwater, there's lots of things to see on the way. You can also just go down the marker line connected to the mermaid.
Emmonds Beach on 5/1/2002
The images on the page here make it look easy to get into the water, not so.. there is lots of round rocks about the size of a softball all over the place, making it difficult to walk out to get into the water. My advice, CRAWL! It's a bit tricky to get in and out here. Watch your step. It's pretty much all sand bottom once you get a few feet from the shoreline. With little to see, except the odd fish. There isn't really much of a drop off until you get to the island out front of the beach. On the right end of the island the wall goes down to about 85+ feet. Lots of animal and plant life once your near the island.
