Features

Wall, Caves, Boulder Pile / Shelves, Kelp Forest

Description

This is a great site with steep shelves, boulders, walls, and lots of life. Kelp along the shore extends down to about 20 ft and the terrain drops off fairly steeply to below 100 ft. The current here allows you to drift along comfortably while exploring the boulders, caves, and crevices.

Special Restrictions:

This site is best reserved for intermediate to advanced divers due to the steep terrain and current. You'd only want to dive here with a live boat.

How to get there:

Allen Island is south of Skyline Marina and Burrows Island on the east side of Rosario Strait.

Very colorful with a good dive light. Lots of nudi's, urchins, christmas anenomes, etc. The highlight for me was finding my first two puget sound king crabs! The first was just a baby but the second was HUGE!!! Can't wait to dive this site again!
