Features

Large Rock Formation / Pinnacle, Boulder Pile / Shelves

Description

Brown Rock is a gorgeous dive on a small rock formation in a cove in Obstruction Pass and is accessible from shore by determined divers and kayakers. The rock descends to 45' and then turns into a series of shelves to 65'. The rock is covered with abundant colorful invertebrate life including anemones, cup corals, chitons, sponges, etc.

Special Restrictions:

Done from boat or shore. Shore divers should be in good physical condition, the rock is a little over 1000' from the shore entry and current is likely. On the swim over it will be moving along the shore to the west (right) until you reach the rock where ti may split. Please do not attempt this dive during a large exchange (over a 5' difference).

How to get there:

Located on Orcas Island, about 45 minuets by from the ferry dock on the south side of the island in Obstruction Pass. Take Orcas Rd to Olga Road for about 10 miles, through East Sound to the town of Olga. Turn left on Point Lawrence Rd and then Right onto Obstruction Pass Rd. 2.5 miles and you'll reach the Lieber Haven Marina Resort. Park in the public lot adjacent to the Marina.

By boat, Brown Rock is the obvious Rock in the cove to the north inside of Obstruction Pass, just west of Deer Point.
