    Puget Sound diving (Seattle)

    Hello guys

    I already found a threat at ST recommending Bandito's charter in Puget Sound. I looked at their prices, and they seem reasonable.

    As for the dive sites they offer, which ones do you recommend?

    Thanks in advance,

    You will encounter many more threats on that other scuba forum!



    I would appreciate you keeping this thread alive, and post what you find about diving in Puget Sound; I plan to visit within the next year and put my new dry suit to work!

    The Bandito boats are good charters -- They're spacious and organized, and the captains are good. The sites they will do will be determined by the tide and current information on the day that you dive; at least on the charters I've done with them, they've never asked us where we wanted to go.

    My favorite South Sound sites from the boat are Sunrise (which can be done as a shore dive, with a punishing hike), KVI Towers, and Zee's Reef. Sometimes they'll also do Day Island Wall, which is a wonderful dive, but one I've only done from shore. Their second site is often a current-insensitive one like the Maury Island Barges, which tend to be silty and less interesting.

    Bandito also operates a boat in the San Juan Islands. I've only been up there once. The viz tends not to be terribly good in the San Juans, but because there's a lot of current there, there's a lot of life and a different spectrum of critters from what we see in the central or South Sound.

    ST community rocks. After this thread I received a few private messages and was able to find what seems to be a top notch instructor in Puget Sound area. I'll make sure I post a trip report - but so far - thanks SOUNDER for making the connection.
