11/19/2004 Edward J. Palumbo (Avg: 3.58 Review) - Triton Cove is often overlooked, possibly because it doesn't look like a dive site from nearby Hwy 101. Parking is usually more than adequate. There are no restrooms, but there is a porta-potty or two. I have not developed the coordination to change in or out of a wetsuit in a porta-potty, and it's probably one of those arcane skills practiced by the very few. Triton Cove offers a boat ramp that simplifies diver entry and exit, and also provides a launch site for a dive kayak, but there are powerboats to consider and a safety float & dive flag are well advised. Visibility varies quite a bit, usually from poor to fair. On entry, turn to the left (north) to avoid inbound/outbound boat traffic. I observed ratfish, rockfish, midshipmen, sculpin, and other marine life at this site. Water temp was 52 degrees F in June. Triton Cove is located on the west side of the Hood Canal. Drive north from Shelton, past Hoodsport, Lilliwaup, Eldon and the Hamma Hamma River. Look to the right of the highway for the Triton Cove entry and parking area, which is well marked. On a sunny day, this is a photogenic area. There are no restaurants or snack shops at the site, but it's a fine spot for a family picnic.
