Debris, Eel Grass Beds
Lincoln Park is a shallow sandy beach ideal for new divers or those looking to spend a day at the beach with the family and still accomplish a dive.
The dive provides little as far as natural reef or any structure that you are searching for. You can enter the water near the bathrooms and swim toward the ferry dock through the cove where you will encounter scattered debris that have been discarded or lost from boats. There is a small pipeline running out between the residential homes and the public beach. Healthy colonies of sea pens can be encountered around 40 ft heading north parallel to the shoreline.
This also makes a great park for riding bikes, jogging or skating and has several playgrounds for kids.
Beware of boat traffic and do not approach the ferry dock too closely. Parking can be difficult to find on weekends.
How to get there:
Located about 3 miles south of Alki Beach, just north of the Fauntleroy ferry dock at the north end of the cove.
Park in the southern parking lot of Lincoln Park and descend to the water via the paved path on the south end of the parking lot. It is a longer walk and a steep hill so a cart may be worth while.
