Cove 3 is not nearly as popular as Cove 2, which is just a couple hundred yards away, so it is often overlooked by divers. The bottom is mostly sand and sea lettuce though there are some pilings, rocky piles and a junk yard to explore. Easy entry and a well protected little cove make this an interesting dive if you are looking for a change to Cove 2.
You MUST stay outside of the buoy line. This is an active ferry/water taxi dock. There is a rope on the bottom with some bottles floating on it that marks the buoy line so that you can avoid crossing it.
How to get there:
From Seattle, take the west Seattle bridge to the Harbor Ave SW Exit and take a right on Harbor Ave SW. Follow it 1.3 miles along the water until you come to the fish-n-chips restaurant and the water taxi parking lot. You can either park in the lot or on the street. Cove 3 is to the North side of the restaurant. The South side of the restaurant is Cove 2. Gear up and walk down to the water.
