Description

Washington Park near Anacortes holds two great dive possibilities, Green Point to the north and Fidalgo Head to the south. The bay is muddy and relatively featureless but both rugged shorelines offer a variety of colorful life.

Enter the water near the stair and swim north to explore the rocky, jagged shoreline of Green Point. Beware that there are strong currents in this area and beware during a flood that your return may be difficult. you can also exit on the rocks below the park to the north but it is awkward and difficult.

Fidalgo Head is south around the point marked by the rugged rocky shoreline that extends below the surface for 35 to a sandy bottom once around the point. It is a LONG swim, easily 15 minutes just to reach the beginning of the point so be prepared for it. You must return to this beach to exit.

Special Restrictions:

Although not deep, both of the sites are subject to heavy currents and often questionable visibility thanks to nearby rivers so they should be left to advanced divers in good physical condition who like to explore. Flood runs north and ebb runs south.

How to get there:

About 20 miles west of I-5 in Burlington.
Head southwest on Avon Cutoff/WA-20 toward Pulver Rd and follow WA-20 for 14.2 mi
Turn right at Commercial Ave/WA-20 Spur 1.4 mi
Turn left at 12th St/WA-20 Spur 3.1 mi
Turn left at Sunset Ave and follow it until it becomes Loop Rd.
Take a Right on Washington Park and park near the sandy beach on your right. Fidago head is located to the left of the bay around the point and Green Point is to the north.

This site is very near to Skyline Wall (aka Burrows Pass)
