CT's Dive Log
The Tower on 5/1/2002
I've never done this as a shore dive, but I'm told it's done. I've had nothing but very good dives here - lots of fish, interesting bottom topology and a giant pacific octopus. Stay alert - it gets deep fast and the current can change quickly here.
Alki Pipeline on 5/1/2002
Best done as a night dive on a calm night. I've seen Rockfish, various Gunnels, Sea Cucumbers (psolas), numerous forms of crab, Sturgeon Poachers and one of the more impressive displays of Plumose anemones I've ever seen at the end of the pipe.
Edmonds Underwater Park on 5/1/2002
A significant swim to most of the more interesting structures, but usually worth it. Enormous Ling Cod and Cabezon can usually be found plus lots of interesting smaller critters.
Mukilteo Oil Dock on 5/3/2002
I've only entered from the south and it's a long hike and a long swim. This is an interesting dive site though - more crab than you can imagine. Get a license and a game bag, take a few home and have crab and Coronas. On good vis days look up through the pilings at the end of the dock to the surface. You'll frequently be rewarded by sunlight filtering through the pilings and silhouetting thousands of small fish. An impressive site.
Sunrise Beach Park on 5/3/2002
This is a great dive. Perhaps the best shore dive in Southern Puget Sound. If it's in the Sound you can see it here. The entry from shore is a very long hike and worse going back up the hill. Go with someone familiar with the site until you learn to time the tides and current. The current here can be dangerous.
