Seacrest Park is a shore accessible salt water dive site, located in West Seattle, WA. This dive site has an average rating of 3.57 out of 5 from 7 scuba divers.

Seacrest Park is perhaps the most popular dive site in Seattle. You’ll find dive classes here most every weekend, so take a day off from work and dive this site mid week. And definitely plan a night dive here!
Directions: Just South of downtown Seattle, take the West Seattle Bridge to hop over to West Seattle. Just before the bridge ends, make a right onto Harbor Ave SW. Drive for about a mile to the North, and you’ll see the landmarks in the photos.
Seacrest Cove 2 on 7-26-09 at 5:00pm. Visibility was incredible; 50’+. Had the park pretty much to ourselves since it was afternoon. Played with a Red Octopus the size of a golfball at about 40’ on the south side of the park toward Cove 3. It was just hiding in perfect (almost) camo in the open on the muck. Also saw California Cucumbers, Painted Greenlings, various rockfish and soles, Opalescent and Frosted Nudis, Plumose anemones, various crabs, algaes, stars, worms.
Cove 3, Seacrest, July 19, 2009. No showers here, but less people. There is a silty bottom at the entry due to an overflow run-off pipe which blasts out water all the time. Flounders/sole, and Copper Rockfish were pretty much the only fish. Coonstripe shrimps, a few California Sea Cucumbers, Opalescent Nudis, Red Sea Cucumber, White-Ringed Ribbon worm, Red-Trumpet Calcareous tubeworms, Decorator Crab, Red Rock Crab, anemones, and lots of sea lettuce and brown algaes. Easy entry and the visibility was incredible yesterday!
Cove 1 and Cove 2, training dives. Visibility was 15’, saw large Sea Cucumber, 15" Lingcod, Dungeness and rock crabs (some keepers too). Several small Tiger Rock fish, a couple keeper Black Rock fish. South end of cove 2, just out from tall piling, is the beams, full of large white anemone, very beautiful. Was very busy with classes. Probably 30 divers there over the course of the morning.
