Diving in Olympic Coast National Marine Sanctuary is popular among expert divers. Exceptional habitats and fish populations go hand in hand with the coast's extreme conditions. A few dive charter operators serve the Olympic Coast—ocean conditions and isolation require advanced skills and exposed open-water experience. Before going on the water, check weather, tides, currents, and above all, exercise caution in this extreme and remote environment.
