The most popular of the ten parks in the Washington underwater park system, the Edmonds Underwater Park includes more than 27 acres of tide and bottom lands, about half of which have been developed with features and trails specifically for divers, including a series of man-made reef structures and sunken vessels. The park features a network of fixed guide ropes intended to aid divers.

BeachExpert Tips & Helpful Hints
  • Edmonds Underwater Park is just north of the Edmonds-Kingston Ferry Landing. Underwater structures and sunken vessels create an artificial habitat rich in marine life, and a series of anchored guide ropes make it easy for divers to get around.
  • The deepest area, near the ferry, is 45 feet at high tide; it's important that divers don't cross into ferry lanes. Visibility ranges between 2 and 40 feet, so divers must use a compass and the trail system as guides. For the best visibility, dive at high slack tide.
  • Be realistic about your skill level, pick up a current dive map (available at Edmonds Underwater Sports), and plan to end up near the beach (avoiding a long surface swim). Remember: Currents here are affected not just by wind and tide, but by the ferry propellers.
