Wreck of The Omar
Seattle, WA
Type: Saltwater
Difficulty: Advanced
Entry: None Shore Entry , Boat Access
Attractions: Large Wreck, Boulder Pile / Shelves

The Omar is a wooden Tug Boat located in about 70fsw. The hull remains mostly in tact while the deck has collapsed and is home to loads of rockfish, greenling and a surprising population of warbonnets. Exploring the Omar and the rocks make for a great dive alone.

There are two other wrecks at this location and the combination makes for a great day of diving. Although they could be reached from the Omar by scooter with nitrox or trimix, they are a bit too far to swim on air, at least not with any remaining bottom time to enjoy the dives. There are lines connecting the wrecks, but this is recommended as 3 separate dives.

The Shilshole Bay Horizontal Barge is about 200ft away roughly north in 90-95 at the bottom. It is a huge metal barge that is nearly fully in tact and is the largest and deepest of the three.

The Shilshole Bay Vertical Barge is about 200ft away to the southeast of the Omar in 75 at the bottom. This large metal wreck is very interesting because it sits on its side and stands 40ft from the bottom. The top is only about 35 deep and makes for a great final dive of the day since it is shallower at the top.
