There is always great diving at Ogden Point Breakwater throughout the year. You have kelp forests teeming with life beginning in the spring and carrying on throughout the summer which makes up for the lack of visibility due to algae blooms. In the fall and winter the visibility can be up to 90ft with white plumose anemones dotting the reef. Stubby squid, schools of rock fish, tube snouts, occasional seals and otters, wolf eels, scallops, chitons, starfish, Puget Sound king crab, anemones galore, sea pens... it goes on! Enjoy yourself any time of year and don't forget to stop off at the mermaid statue just past the first bend.
