The park is 27 acres in size. It was laid out in the 1960s by Bruce Higgins and has been developed and maintained by volunteers since then. Divers meet every Saturday and Sunday to work on the park which is now a protected natural area for not only marine life but for birds aswel. The best time to dive Edmonds Underwater Park is in the months of August and September as the water is less cold and visibility is generally better. What can you see? Artificial reefs, wrecks, lush vegetation of sea lettuce and red and yellow algae, numerous objects and a great biodiversity. Too much to mention. Edmonds Underwater Park is something you have to discover for yourself.
