A "Diver's Disneyland". Completely protected marine preserve with many man-made items sunk for the Diver's enjoyment. Items include such things as a dry dock, Tugboat, smaller boats and various attractions made from plastic pipe and other materials. Also, being a protected preserve, there are many species of fish life in abundance. Excellent shore dive with restrooms, nearby parking and close to the town of Edmonds. Dive shop near by as well as restaurants and shops. The bottom slopes off very gradually from shore and the max depth is no more then 45 feet or so.

A wonderful park. Separate restroom facilities for divers with free hot water showers. A stairway leads down into the water which is great during high tide. Otherwise, you walk out quite a ways to the water. Nice wrecks underwater to look at. For a night dive you need a really good flashlight on top of the surface since there is very little surface light. The bio-luminescence is really fun to look at.
