Maury Island Barges
Maury Island, WA
Type: Saltwater
Difficulty: Intermediate, Advanced
Entry: None Shore Entry , Boat Access
Attractions: Large Wreck, Debris,

The barges were once quite a site, but alas the effects of tide and time, not to mention other boats knocking them down, are reducing them to piles of rotting wood scraps. None the less, it’s still a decent dive, with chunks of the barges still intact creating hiding places for perch, lingcod and rockfish. You will usually see quite a few kelp greenling and ratfish here as well.

The barges are located at the base of the three southern most dolphins, running diagonal from the dolphins to the south east. The water is only about 30-40' deep at the base of the dolphins, descend them and swim downhill and you will begin to encounter debris from the barges in about 40-50'. The barges intersect so you can easily swim from the remains of one barge to the others. Max depth is about 80' at the stern of the deepest barge.

There is also the hull of a fiberglass cabin cruiser just below the first set of dolphins to the south of the conveyer belt in about 50'. Drop down the dolphin or swim north from the barges. It is approximately a 45º swimming north-east from the base of the dolphin.

Spend you safety stop checking out the pilings. The pilings are in shallower water the closer to the conveyer belt you get (probably due to debris over the years falling off the belt).
