This site has become on of my favorite shore dives in Washington. I disagree with the description that shore entry is difficult. Easy parking (Discovery Pass recommended), easy trail to the beach. It's about 300 steps from the car to the beach but there is an elevation to contend with, but it's not difficult. There are picnic tables at the beach to stage gear. WARNING: Only dive this site with people who understand the currents. Know how to use a compass. We got blown off the wall. The only way back was to use the compass and swim south until you hit the wall. There are up and down currents which will cause you to change depth by 10-20 feet, this site is only for divers who are proficient with buoyancy control. You watch the currents, then drop in at the appropriate time and go with the current easterly under the bridge. After about 20 minutes, the current goes slack (kind of) for 5-10 minutes, then you ride the current westerly back to the entry point.
