Recommended type of dive: Shore, Boat, and Kayak

How to dive this site: As a shore dive - You should gear up in the parking area next to the park road. Follow the cement stairway to the beach and start your dive. The best area here is the rocky shoreline to the south. It is shallow (20 - 30') but has many rocks and crevices where aquatic life may hide. After reaching this shoreline, make your way west until turning around and heading back east towards shore. Make your ascent in shallow water and head up the stairs.

As a boat dive - Head to the northeast section of Fidalgo Head. It is best to dive here at slack before a flood. Using a dive boat is recommended when a current is present; the boat operator can pick you up after your dive. After submerging, head southwest, keeping the rocky wall to your left. At 60 - 80' are many barnacles, scallops, lingcod and rockfish.

As a kayak dive - The closest place to launch your kayak is the boat launch at Washington Park. Head southwest from here to Green Point and behind your dive. It is recommended that you tether your boat to you so you will always have a dive flag above you and will easily be able to reload your kayak and paddle to shore.
