I went scuba diving here on 5/9/2015. Average viz: 11-15ft/3-5m. Water temp: 50-55°F/10-13°C.
Good time, saw plenty of Ling Cod, rockfish, anemones. Looked into three tiny wrecks (small boats). It was a great time! It was limited by Visibility due to suspended particles in the water, but they have showers there which make the post-dive nice. GREAT TIME!

The picture of me with the background was not at the Edmonds underwater park. It was a site to the south called the Edmonds oil dock. It has since been torn down and is now a general park with beach access.

My 2nd 2 open water dives were here.

This is a very popular dive site, especially for newer divers. A protected area from boaters, and not very deep. A lot of man made attractions under water to see. Even has rope trails to follow, and a map posted on the restroom wall. I like to call it "Divers Disneyland", because after many many dives here, I still haven’t seen everything.

I would like to say something mean about this dive site. In order to keep people away, however I am nice and that is my cross to bear. Its a fun dive my favourite. And if you have the time to volunteer in building this park, it would be time well spent. Thanks.
