In the sound you’ll always get some surge from the tides going in or out, but they are usually pretty mild. You can go to West Seattle and dive the coves near the water taxi. There isn’t a lot to see there but it is a good place to practice cold water skills. Hoodsport on the sound is also pretty good diving. While you will get some tidal surge it is pretty mild. Also you can call the Ocean Quest dive charter and talk to them. They are pretty good and can let you know which of their charters are best for less experienced divers. Of course you can always take a class or two. Those will help build confidence.
