"Diving in Puget Sound" Top 5 Page for this destination Alki Point Tip by glabah

Alki Point, Seattle: 15 reviews and 25 photos

  Yes, they are diving, in Seattle, in late December
by glabah

There are several locations, mostly on the other side of Elliott Bay in West Seattle, that are designated as safe diving locations, and are therefore supposed to be free of boat traffic.

As to what risks you take when you do dive into the water - that I will leave for you to research on your own. Remember that there are signs posted saying not to eat certain types of fish caught in this water due to industrial pollution.

And despite ships and boats being required to stay out of the water, their wake can be quite impressive.

Even so, there are a few brave souls that feel seeing the underside of Seattle is what they want to do - even in the last week of December!!!! (see photo)

Address: Puget Sound and Elliott Bay
