Fox Island Ferry - No Shore Access

Description

The Fox Island Ferry Dock is a long wooden pier and then a substantial piling structure with multiple dolphins (clusters of pilings that break the surface used to tie boats to or as “bumpers” for the ferry). Depths reach 40ft at the bottom of the deepest pilings. The pilings are grown up with plumose anemones and other piling-dwellers. The muddy bottom hides years of buried items that bottle divers adore as well as scattered debris.

Special Restrictions:

This site is moderately protected from current, especially on an ebb closer to shore thus it can be dove from an anchored boat if anchored near the shore. Beware of boat traffic.

How to get there:

This is the remains of what once was the ferry landing to Fox Island before there was a bridge. Once a popular shore dive for bottle hunters and muck divers, access has now been fenced off and can only be done from boat. It is easily located midway along the northeast side of Fox Island, nearly directly across from the Magnolia Heights on Vashon Island. Look for the pier and ferry structure.
