An old sub-chaser lies on the sandy bottom in about 40-60fsw perpendicular to the shore. The boat is approximately 100ft long, 20ft wide and stands 10 from the bottom and has become home to a healthy variety of life and huge schools of perch.
This is a good dive after Steamboat Island Wall or the Tolmie State Park Barges.
Watch out for protruding debris from the wreck and fish line. There are lots of potential snags and head-aches.
Keep an eye on currents. Taylor Bay is slightly sheltered during the out going tide so High tide slack would be ideal. Visibility in the South Sound can be low so make sure you are prepared to navigate with limited vis.
How to get there:
Boat access only. Taylor Bay is located in the Nisqually Reach (North of Lacey). Line up on the bluff about half way between the left tip of the bluff and the V cut in the bluff. It is very easy to find with a depth finder.
You can launch boats from Boston Harbor or the Nisqually Boat Launch, but both are a little primitive. A nicer boat Launch can be found in Olympia at Swantown Marina.
