Dive site mooring

Post by Teejv » Fri Feb 14, 2020 8:18 pm

Does anybody have of a list of the sites that currently have mooring bouys on them? When WSA originally started installing them they put in 19 but I know the number has increased since then. On another note if anyone here is interested in doing some deco dives from a boat send me a message.

Hi!
Welcome to nwdiveclub!

Hmm, I'm not sure but my guess is the number of moorings has gone down, as there's not as many charters out there maintaining them (particularly in the hood canal). You may want to ask WSA.

The better sites that I know that have them are Sunrise, Shangri-La, Flagpole. Salt Water SP and likely a few others have them too but I don't consider them standout sites. There are none in the San Juans where the diving can often be better. Take turns with live boats out there.

Welcome to the club! How many divers can fit in your boat? :)

If you do shore dives too you should head down to Redondo on Thursday nights. We usually meet at 6:30pm.

Happy Diving!!

I have a 17’ Arima that can dive 3 people, probably more like 2 with doubles and deco bottles

The wsa website has a complete list of buoys

- I would imagine that there would be a large amount of involuntary gagging
- I don't know about you but I'm not into swallowing it
