Summary: Just South of Point Defiance Park and with a view of the Tacoma Narrows Bridge this dive site highlights spectacular piling breakwater made of the old ferry dock that has been overgrown by plumose anemones and a host of other sea life. Best to dive during high slack, swimming straight out to the pilings and descending down to the shallow (40′-45′) bottom. Divers can then make an L-shape tour around the pilings. For a second dive, try the wall south of the pilings. Entry is on a shallow rocky beach towards pilings.
