Have dove here a lot with the group that does park enhancements on Saturdays and Sundays. Probably my favorite place in the world to dive. Locker rooms to change in, easy dive access, fun structures, lots of fish (Lincod up to 6' long) and a dive shop nearby for gas fills and maps.

We have dived here dozens of times over the years. Some things are constant: huge ling cod, large cabezon, coonstripe shrimp, and blue-and-red feather duster tubeworms. One of the things that keeps us coming back are the seasonal changes: cabezon fiercely defending their eggs or -- especially worth the trip -- thousands of hooded nudibranchs in the eel grass in...

If you haven't had a chance to dive the Pacific Northwest, Edmonds underwater park is a great place to start. Lots of cool things to see as well as many underwater sunken treasures. Not as many crabs is up north in the Muckle Tia area but lots of great fish and fun diving

I am an experienced diver both warm and cold water. I was in Seattle diving with Seattle Dive Tours and this was the last spot in our tour. The entry is easy, parking is close to the entry and while people complain of the surface swim, we timed it so we could stay underwater for most of the swim. The... More

If you want to go hang out with the kids and enjoy it's fine. There are often many divers here, mostly new ones, taking their tests. If you are an experienced diver, likely you will want to go elsewhere.

For cold water divers, this location has numerous wrecks that is off bounds to other activities....a good place to see nesting lingcods, and the big pacific octopus....located just north of the Edmonds-Kingston ferry....a dive shop with supplies is located 0.28 miles south of parking area...there are many restaurants located just inland, with plenty of interesting stores to shop, and the...

We went in late Aug and the water was 54oF. Visibility was much better than I expected. We did 2 dives and here are some things about: 1) Easy parking and easy entry 2) The UW trails are impossible to follow due to the seaweed during summer months. Be ready for a long surface swim. A compass is esential here.... More

This was my first dive in west coast. I used to do lots of cold water dive (35 out of 100) but this was the coldest. I wore 7 mm two piece wet suit and it was okay when I first dip myself in the water but my finger was totally numb and couldn't take off my fins easily when... More

my husband and I went to this site as new divers (with around 15 dives each). We found the trails pretty easy to follow and the map easy to read. The only downside is you either have to be great at underwater navigation to get to the beginning of the trails, or be prepared for a decent surface swim.
