Three Tree Point North is a salt water dive site, located in Burien, WA. This dive site has an average rating of 3.50 out of 5 from 2 scuba divers.

The diversity of various man-made structures, small boat wrecks and urban remains at this site is intriguing, and you never know quite what you’ll find living here. The artificial reefs run parallel to shore at two depths and divers of all experience levels can find something to enjoy there, or in shallow eel grass near the shore. Currents are moderate and tend to run southward, it can be dived at times other than slack and is a good destination when south winds are blowing.

The artificial reef structures teaming with fish are the main attraction to diving Three Tree. There are tire reefs, large piles of corrugated pipe, a junk yard of appliances, a few small boats (one still on its trailer) and even a large satellite dish. Swarms of ratfish are often encountered as you swim from item to item here. The reefs are home to large rock fish, ling cod, painted greenlings, octopus and more while you are likely to find sculpins and snake pricklebacks along the cobble and sandy bottom. There have been sightings of wolf eels, giant octos and six gill sharks at this location if you are lucky. Please be polite to the neighboring houses, especially at night. Be careful, the bottom is pretty steep and it is easy to go deep if you are not paying attention. There can also be decent current during large tidal exchanges so you may want to head down the beach and allow yourself to drift back towards the entry point. is a good destination when

I went scuba diving here on 8/23/2015. Average viz: 11-15ft/3-5m. Water temp: 50-55°F/10-13°C.
First time diving here. Beautiful. Didn’t get to see everything. Looking forward to do more dives here. Small street side parking in a residential area. Residents are friendly (may be I am special). Only the entry point is public rest of the beach on both sides are private property. Lot of people and boats are fishing around the dive spot. Better to have a dive flag.
