Hey Kathy! One word.. WETSUIT! j/j Texas water compared to Washington State, wow. I don’t know if you’ve seen this website but check it out: http://www.ci.edmonds.wa.us/Discovery_programs_website/Underwater_Park.html
Also, there are a few divebuddy members in that general area. You can do a search on here for them and email a few directly if you’d like to. Here are 2 more listings on DB with pictures, comments:

The park is nice, some things to consider, the water only gets to 40’ deep at the farthest point and if you want to see the whole thing it is a long surface swim to get out there. On the plus side the fish (link cod?) are huge and are well over 4’ long and the park covers a large area. You just follow the paths through the park and they have set up alot of stuff along the way.


Another thing you might want to look into since you are in that area is finding a good octipi spot since Puget Sound is known for the largest octipi in the world.

Cove 2, Cove 3 are great spots and you can see as much or more aquatic life than at Edmonds and not have the surface swim. Parking there is the problem. Got an emergency plan for that spot somewhere if you need it.

 Hi Katfish,

DalelynnSims is dead wrong about the amount of life at cove 2 compared to Edmonds. Edmonds beats it hands down, both on the amount and diversity of life there. But check out both.
