Recommended type of dive: Boat

How to dive this site: Anchor your boat above or to the side of the reef at 50 - 60', depending on the tide. There are concrete slabs and rocks sunk as an artificial reef. The bottom around the reef is sandy to muddy. Many rockfish, lingcod and greenling make their home in the cracks and crevices. Make your way around the reef and return to your vessel. It is advised to dive here at slack and you should have someone in the boat to pick you up if necessary. A bouy sometimes marks the reef but it is best to display a dive flag and alpha flag since this is an area for high boat traffic. HAZARDS: Current, fishing line on reef and boat traffic.

Directions to the site: GPS Coordinates: N. 47 59, 937 W. 122 18, 539. Launch your boat at Langley Marina on Whidbey Island, Mukilteo State Park, or Everett Marina. Head towards Gedney Island just southeast of Langley. The reef lies less than a mile south of Gedney Island. It may or may not have a bouy marking it.
