Nice dive, there are a few new things to help divers find the site. There is now an orange bullet shaped bouy placed at the far left end of the dive site as you look out at it from the entry point. There is also a large round orange bouy set by the Puyallup tribe to the near the wall but in deeper water. In any case you are to the left of all the white mooring bouys There is a second dive at this site, a large boiler from a wreck in 60 feet of water. The boiler is 44 feet long, 22 feet in circumference and about 11 feet in diameter. and has many interesting cutouts on it, allowing fish easy access, and several octo dens underneath. The boiler is listed as a wreck on the nautical charts for the area. If you are boat diving it will be listed on the charts. If you are shore diving, from the parking lot walk about 100 meters south along the shore to where there are some old abandoned beach cabins. There is a small seawall made from pilings driven straight into the beach. The wreck is in 60 feet of water directly in front of the seawall. About a 50 meter swim. I lies east/west orientation so if you go back and forth along the 60 foot line adjusting for tide you should have no trouble finding it. It is probably too far to swim from the wall to the boiler along the contour line unless you are on doubles or a rebreather.
