Any active divers on this forum? I got certified a few weeks ago for recreational diving and was out in the sound all weekend. There are some monster fish down there. Anyone dive for crab during the season? I hear Mukilteo is a good spot. I'd love to hear from any active divers. Thanks.

I'm a certified diver but I haven't been out in years. Edmonds and Titlow beach were a couple of my favorite spots to dive.

Yeah, I want to head up to the Edmonds Underwater Park soon. Looks like a lot of fun. First I need to get some fishing in, then I can do some more diving!

I was with the Lake Stevens fire dept and i started their dive rescue team back in the 80s.I have been certified for years as a master diver and search and rescue.I havent hit the water in many years and i doubt i ever will again.I screwed up while on a dive in the San Juans while looking for scallops.I came up too fast{to this day i still think i came up fine} and ended up feeling sick.Buddies were concerned i had the bends so the Coast guard helicoptered me to Virginia Mason and i spent the weekend in a hyperbaric chamber as a precaution.The doctors at that time restricted my diving to 2 atmospheres or 66 feet for a year.I also couldnt fly for that year.
I do have one thing to say about diving dont go alone always dive with a buddy.People that dive alone are asking for something bad to happen.Dont dive at Mukilteo the current there really rips at times and if you;r not prepared it could get ugly really fast.Padi i think still offers a current diving class.Take it it can save you;r life.

I don't dive (only freedive when I'm back in my old Hawaiian stomping grounds) but found a pretty cool website with a list of dive sites around the sound. It breaks it down by regions, has pictures and descriptions of the dive and a list of what fish and wildlife you will see. I use it for bottomfishing ideas but it might help you find several cool places to go and explore. Adios, T
