Is There Anything To See?

How many times have you told someone you are going SCUBA diving in the cold waters of the 'sound' or the 'canal' and they ask you, "Is there anything to see underwater?" Here is something to share with them so they can see why we love our 'cold' water diving in the Pacific Northwest. Enjoy...

Re: Columbia River Scuba Diving

Thanks for posting the links to the Yakima Dive Club. Unfortunately, locally, the river is too shallow and the nearby ponds & lakes are very poor viz, usually less than 3 feet. Heavy algae growth and mud/silt. So, most of our club diving is either in Puget Sound or Hood Canal. If anyone is inter...

With the loss of the pier at Mukilteo and the crabbing......
Has anyone been diving around the Boeing dock and if so,
have the crabs moved to that area making it worthwhile to
do some crabbing there this summer?
