June Shop Dive – Redondo (Night Dive)(AOW)
June 9, 2018
Divemaster – Mike Waymire
Small Wreck, Debris, Structures, Tire Reef, Junk Yard,
Very easy entry and good facilities make this one of the most popular dive sites in the South Puget Sound for classes and divers of all experience levels. It also serves as a great night dive location since it has 24 hour access.
Enter the water at the stairs to the left of the pier or the beach to the right of the restaurant. There is a rope tied to the Southern most piling at the end of the pier (the one with the building on it) that will lead you to some small boats and eventually to about 80′ deep.
Another rope leads down from the second northrn most piling to an old observation tube and below that lies another small boat. If you follow a line directly north of the observation tube you’ll come across some small old boats. There is another large rope leading from the bow of the deapest one that will take you all the way through a series of artificial reefs, small boats and the crowning jewel, a Volkswagen Bug. Take a 210 heading from the VW for about 50′ and you’ll hit a large biodome made of PVC pipes which looks like a jungle gym for divers.
Most of the bottom is sandy and easily stirred up but it is easy to navigate.
Beware of fishermen on the pier and the public boat launch to the South.
How to get there:
From Pacific Hwy S turn west on 509 and an immediate right onto Redondo Way S. Follow the road to the bottom and park on the street near the water or in the paid parking area near the boat launch.
