Salmon Beach
Near Point Defiance, Tacoma, Washington
Type: Saltwater
Difficulty: Intermediate, Advanced
Entry: None Shore Entry , Boat Access
Attractions: Junk Yard,

Salmon Beach, Tacoma is a cozy, tight knit community comprised of a single line of home directly along the waterline, just south of Point Defiance. It has spectacular views of the Tacoma Narrows and some interesting artwork around the homes. It is a nice sightseeing stroll by boat when coasting along the west shore of the narrows.

While not a dramatic dive site, there is a considerable amount of “junk” that has been dropped there over the ages dating back to earlier times when the sound was used to discard garbage.

The current near the shore runs opposite the predictions thaks to a massive back eddy. Plan your dive during a flood and enter the water near the southern most homes, making sure the current is running the correct direction. If it isn't then continue north until the current runs with you. Enter the water and descend to 45-60ft to view the most interesting historical treasures.
