Hours: 6am-10pm

The Edmonds Underwater Park is located just north of the Edmonds-Kingston Ferry Landing at the foot of Main Street. The Park includes more than 27 acres of tide and bottom lands of which approximately half have been developed with features and trails specifically for divers. The Park was established at Brackett's Landing in 1970 by city ordinance as a Marine Preserve and Sanctuary. It is the most popular of 10 underwater parks that make up Washington’s underwater park system.

The Underwater Park provides convenient parking, restrooms, a dry changing area, as well as a shower and foot-wash station. Charts, maps and information to assist with developing a dive plan are on display near the Park restroom. Air can be purchased several blocks south of the Park at Edmonds Underwater Sports. Brackett's Landing Park, on the adjacent beach, provides pathways, picnic areas, and interpretive information in addition to spectacular mountain and marine views.

The Underwater Park itself is a series of man-made reef structures interspersed with sunken vessels in various states of decay, which together create an extensive artificial habitat for a wide variety of marine life. These features, along 2.5 miles of trails, are connected by an extensive network of fixed guide ropes anchored to the bottom which make it easy for divers to get around the Park.
