Deception Pass gate still locked

Post by Jan K » Sun Mar 11, 2018 4:43 pm

Daylight Savings Time and 3 hour jet lag combined makes a lousy morning. I arrived at home at one thirty from trip to Yucatan's cenotes. I woke up at six and instead of trying in vain to go back to sleep, I packed cold water dive gear and drove up to Deception Pass to take advantage of nice tide exchange. Well, to my surprise, the gate is still locked! At the entrance I am told that it will open on April 1. So be warned!
They did let me in to do my star survey, but the visibility is very bad, barely 8 feet and nor really worth the hassle. No sick stars, but the Finger sponges are still dying :(

Ah, thanks for the report. Better, then, that I dove Port Townsend this morning.

Still want to do DP...

Thanks for the heads-up. I'd planned to dive it Monday, because their web site said it opened at the beginning of March.
