Recommended type of dive: Shore

How to dive this site: The main attraction at this site is a bottom that slopes down rapidly at a 45 degree angle from the shore. You can get very deep here in a short period of time. Closer to the public boat ramp the sandy, muddy slope drops quickly well past 130'. There is a shallow shelf of eelgrass and small rocks in 10-15' of water in front of the public restrooms to the south of the parking lot. Down below the edge of the shelf where the bottom slopes down rapidly there are a couple of deep dredge marks that make an interesting wall to explore. There are plenty of rock and dungeness crabs here as well as many starfish and sea anemone. The current here is weak and variable most of the time, but plan on diving in a period of slack water.

Hazards: Deep water, limited visibility at times, small boat traffic to include jet skis.

Directions to the site: From I-5 take 526 west. Follow the signs to the Clinton/Mukilteo-Whidbey Island Ferry. Take Mukilteo Speedway to the bottom of the hill, staying out of the ferry traffic. At the bottom of the hill take a left on Front Street. Enter the State Park by taking another left. Park as close to the water as possible.

From Whidbey Island: Follow 525 south to Clinton and take the ferry to Mukilteo. Immediately after disembarking the ferry on the mainland side take a right on Front Street. Enter the State Park by taking another left. Park as close to the water as possible.
