Description

Keystone Jetty is an rocky breakwater near the KIeystone ferry dock that is just thriving with life. Carpets of Plumose and other invertebrates cover the rocks which are teaming with Rockfish and Lingcod. This site is absolutelly beautiful. Breath taking actually.

The jetty is exposed for about 1/2 of its lengh. The end of the exposed portion is about 30ft deep and continues in the same direction underwater to about 60ft.

Special Restrictions:

Make sure you time this at slack, it could be very dangerous if not timed right. Stay to the outside of the jetty and do not venture iside where the ferry passes.

How to get there:

The Jetty is located right next to the Port Townsend/Keystone ferry dock on Whidby Island. Parking is fairly limited. There is often a ranger there that can help you find a spot close to the beach too.

    Had a great dive as well. James and I saw 3 GPO's on the back side of the jetty plus tons of other sea life. Very cool dive.

    I'm in a big green GMC pickup with a lid over the bed. Bring your Discover Pass if you have one. Otherwise you can pay at the lot.

    Bring two tanks. The 16th is pretty low exchange in the early afternoon. We can see how the eddy currents are flowing and either dive along the jetty or underneath the pilings. Both are fun dives.
