Ediz Hook Entry Point


Lots of sunken "dead-heads" Structures,


Ediz Hook is the long spit that shelters Port Angeles from the Straights of Juan de Fuca. You can dive nearly anywhere along the inside of the hook, but the most popular section is between the tower and the public boat ramp near the Coast Guard Air Station where the bottom drops off steeply. Wade into the water and begin the descent down the steep sandy slope riddled with sunken logs and stumps. Most of the life exists in the shallows up to 60ft. Deeper, the logs pile up and in some place become several layers thick, making an odd and eerie aquatic environment. Depths beyond 130ft can be reached in some parts of the hook. There is a lot to explore. This area is protected from most weather and currents but make a visual inspection of the conditions before suiting up.

Special Restrictions:

Beware of boat traffic overhead. Be mindful of your depth. It is unadvisable to dive the outside of the hook due to unpredictable surf and currents and there is less to see.

How to get there:

Follow 101 W or 117 N through Port Angeles until you come to Marine Dr and take a left. Follow this through the industrial part of the harbor along the water and it will become Ediz Hook Rd. Continue about 1.5 miles to the tower on the right. There is an easy entry from the dirt parking areas.
