Tacoma Narrows Bridge - Drift Dive
North of the Tacoma Narrows Bridge along the East Shore, Tacoma, WA
Type: Saltwater
Difficulty: Advanced
Entry: None Shore Entry , Boat Access
Attractions: Wall, Boulder Pile / Shelves, Kelp Forest

Drift diving the Tacoma Narrows Bridge is a thrilling and beautiful diving experience in a rapidly changing display of scenery.

Near the shoreline you'll find beautiful kelp beds and framing short walls and ledges full of colorful sealife. The ledges run all along the east shoreline about 25'-35' deep with intermitted ledges, octopus and wolf eel dens and large boulders down to 80' where the substrate becomes mostly large cobble stone.

On a flood, put in near the powerlines and drift south toward the bridge. On an ebb put in under the bridge or just south of it and drift north toward the powerlines. NOTE: It does not matter precisely where you chose to begin and end your dive as the entire shoreline is this area is very interesting, so don't feel like you are missing something if you don't make the entire stretch in one dive.

Although the ledges continue both directions, the most dynamic and colorful portion of this area is south of the power lines and north of the bridge. Sandstone ledges to the north give way to clay ledges south of the bridge.
