Hood Canal Dive Sites

The Hood Canal attracts divers for its mild currents and interesting life that can be easily accessed by shore or a local dive charter. Encounters with Giant Pacific Octopus and Wolf Eels are common in relatively shallow water and lingcod, rockfish, nudibranchs, crab and more are ever present.

The primary challenge of the Hood Canal is water visibility. Divers can expect 10-20, often better in the winter months and worse after heavy rains or in the spring time when algae blooms.

The Hood Canal reaches from the tip at Belfair, west to Hoodsport and north to the Hood Canal Bridge. Hwys 106 and 101 run along the water and offer scenic views of the Canal.
