The Sisters
Next to the Hood Canal Bridge, Port Ludlow, Washington
Type: Saltwater
Difficulty: Intermediate, Advanced
Entry: None Shore Entry , Boat Access
Attractions: 1,000's square yards of reefLarge Rock Formation / Pinnacle

The Sisters are the pair of pinnacles visible from the Hood Canal Bridge. They are connected by a spit about 20-30' deep and are surrounded by a cascading rocky reef that drops in all directions providing an exciting and enormous dive site.

There is no one particular dive at this location and the entire reef is full of life, especially from 30'-40' deep range just below the kelp. The most dynamic portion of The Sisters is off the south side of the big sister (the southern one with the marker on it) or the north side of the little sister (north pinnacle faving the bridge). Here it drops sharply in large steps and ledges and are covered in large lingcod, rockfish, and kelp greenling. The ledges continue along the "bridge" between the pinnacles and are steeper on the east side facing the canal and drop to 110' before turning to a sloping sandy substrate. On the west side, the slope is more gradual and bottoms out at 70'-80' deep and is strewn with boulders on both side.

All around the reef expect to see huge rock scallops, sponges, hydrocorals, tunicates, cucumbers and other colorful invertebrates as well as many species of sculpin, perch, gunnels and warbonnets.
