Yup ... unless you can convince one of the local homeowners to allow you access to the water ...

It doesn't sound like a practical option, considering how cranky homeowners can be. Better start safe money for a charter boat, I guess. Judging from your pictures the site looks fabulous.

Hey, when you guys get a few more dives under your belts and are comfortable with the depths, we'll take you out on our boat to do Waterman's. It's a fabulous dive.

Thanks Lynne!

I guess that we do not have to become technical divers to dive this site...

We are even more curious now: how deep is it?

The lumpsucker wasn't tiny at all. In fact in what bigger than the Grunt that I was taking a pic of when I saw it.
It's pretty hard to miss the wall if you go in at the right spot. Walk down the beach (in the water) down to the bent over tree. Swim straight out and drop at about 25 fsw. If you get below 50 fsw then you missed the wall. It runs south from the entry in 25-50 fsw.

Titlo beach is great at the right tide.

Redondo is good as long as there aren't too many classes going on.

Edmonds Park is ok if you don't mind a long surface swim to get to the buoys.

Octopus Hole is a fun dive if you can get one of the 3 parking spots and actually find the short wall. I have yet to go there and not see at least part of an octo in a hole or a crack.

Les Davis Pier is good just watch out for classes here too and stay away from the pier fishermen. They seem to aim for bubbles. The bridge debris makes great places for lingcod and octos to hide.

Sunnyside Beach is mainly a training site, but there's a pipeline that's not too bad that starts at about 40ft and I've made it to 90ft along it while crabbing.

Salters Point currents can get bad if you hit it at the wrong time. there are a couple of small boats near the marina but not much else. It can also get deep quickly. One of the best things here are the weed beds that go down to about 20ft with lots of little stuff hiding in them. Be careful on the stairs going to the beach.

Owens Beach at Point Defiance is nice too. Only been there a couple of times and had no problems with tides.

Those are my most frequented sites mainly for classes. I'm going to check out Toloime State Park soon, and I keep trying to talk some of my friends into Alkai, or Day Island, or Hood Canal however too many classes keep us away. Maybe I'll take a vacation and just stay here and do local dives.

My favorite spot is this natural reef that I discovered by accident in the Puget Sound while Boat diving. Not too deep (20-30ft) and nobody seems to dive this spot. The concentration of Sea Life would stump even Edmonds Underwater Park. Many Ling Cods and Plenty of nice sized Black Sea Bass and Rock Cods everywhere.

I guess? I could tell you but? Then again? That would take the fun out of exploring Puget Sound for yourself.
