Vashon island WSA dive site

Post by shaggie » Thu Jun 22, 2017 4:58 pm

So there I was. Trolling for salmon at the south end of Vashon island east of the Tahlequah ferry terminal, when I noticed a WSA dive buoy just like the one at KVI. My imaging sonar was going nuts and painting me a picture of a large, very dynamic reef. Anyone have any info on this sight? Looks like it would have some crazy currents there.

Howdy!

Could it be Dalco Wall?

It is a dramatic reef... a fun, deep dive.... but relatively brown. Can be subject to a lot of currents on ebb...

Info from Keith C's site:

Sure you don't mean west of the ferry terminal?
