Fox Island Bridge is a shore accessible salt water dive site, located in Tacoma, WA. The maximum depth is 51-60ft/16-18m. The average visibility is 26-30ft/8-9m.

From ScubaDiving magazine; It’s nicknamed Nudibranch Central: During one dip at Fox Island Bridge, divers can locate up to 10 species, including the clown, white-lined dirona and three-lined aeolid varieties. This South Puget Sound site is easy to access: It’s about 22 minutes east of Tacoma by car, and begins on the bridge’s south end. The supports span 60 feet high, and are painted with anemones, sea stars and sponges. Because the currents can be extremely strong, coordinate entry with the slack tide; days with lower tidal exchanges offer more-favorable conditions.

Entry is easy from the public boat launch parking lot on the South end of the bridge, swim out to the bridge stanchions and you’ll have a great dive.
