Mayflower Island

In the winter, walk down the Douglas boat ramp and swim over and then around to the channel side of the island.  There is a small wall there that bottoms out at around 35 feet to a muddy slope that drops down to below 100 feet.  This dive isn’t considered by many to be very interesting; however I have seen octopus, nudibranchs, spiny lump suckers, sturgeon poachers, and the largest halibut I’ve ever seen diving, on this wall.  In the summer you can get to the wall by walking down Sandy Beach at low tide.
