 Featured Site

Rosario Beach - Urchin Rocks
Rosario Park Picnic Area , Anacortes, WA
Type: Saltwater
Difficulty: Snorkling, Advanced
Entry: Moderate Shore Entry , Boat Access
Attractions: Large Rock Formation / Pinnacle, Boulder Pile / Shelves, Kelp Forest

Urchin Rocks at Rosario Beach offer a dynamic shallow dive with easy shore access. The rocks can be clearly see protruding from the water at Rosario Beach head. The rocks form canyons and short walls covered in kelp and invertebrates dropping to about 40' at the base of the larger ones.

On an ebb current, enthusiastic divers can dive all the way around the head into Sharp cove to the left and exit from a small, easy to find trail. On a flood current you could enter the water at Sharp Cove and swim with the flow around to Urchin Rocks, then exit at Rosario Beach. This would be an incredibly long swim/dive so please walk the trail at the head before you decide.
