Thanks for the good report. I wondered what those three lines of bumps were.

Great video! (Oh, so that's what it looks like when the visibility is more than 2 feet.)

Illahee Fish Haven (Illahee Dock)

Postby 60south » Sat Jul 22, 2017 9:18 am

Dive Site Name: Illahee Fish Haven

Skill Level: All Divers

Current Sensitive: Not really.

Location/Address: Near Bremerton, WA: Google Map

Free Parking: Yes.

Staging Area: Ugh. A steep parking area.

Surface Swim: Short.

Nearby Facilities: Porta Potty at the dock.

Special Considerations: A steep road and parking area leads to the dock.

Maximum Depth: 40fsw.

Known Hazards: Boats are common in the bay. Lots of fishing from the dock too, monofilament and lures on the bottom.

Dive Site Description: This dive site review is really just a warning label suggesting "Go Someplace Else". The dock has lots of fry and critters under it. A bit farther out there are three rows of tire reefs, tied together in lumps, with thick ropes leading along each row. Rumor has it that these were placed by Jacques Cousteau; if so, it's another well-intentioned faux pas by Jacques-baby. Like most tire reefs, not much grows on them except anemones and algae. The ropes actually support more life, including some tube worms. The ropes are handy because the visibility can be terrible here.
