Tolmie
Tolmie State Park, Lacey, WA
Type: Saltwater
Difficulty: Snorkling, Beginner, Intermediate
Entry: Moderate Shore Entry , Boat Access
Attractions: Large Wreck, Debris, Tire Reef,

Descend the reef marker and there will be two decayed wooden barges to the northwest, full of crab, perch, rock fish and the occasional lingcod. Be careful not to get snagged on anything, there are a lot of debris. Back at the reef marker, you can head Due NORTH from the base, and swim for quite a while past some tire reefs to a large and mostly in tact wooden barge sitting in about 45ftsw. This boat is fantastic! Lots of holes that have rotted out of the side give it the appearance of the stereotypical pirate ship. The boat is full of fish, crab and invertebrates and there are many boulders and tire reefs around the base providing additional cover for critters. If you do this dive from shore, remember to get good compass headings to the reef marker because it is a long swim ahead of you and there is nothing but a desert and sea lettuce and an enormous bed of sand dollars. You can find Red Rock and Dungeness crab it this area. Watch out for the current if you are on the surface. It can be mild near the beach but really be moving near the buoy. The bottom here can be easily stirred up and you’ll dramatically lose visibility so stay off the bottom a little and you’ll have a more enjoyable dive. The large shallow area makes a good place to snorkel during High tide!
