Toliva Shoal
Mid Channel between Fox Island and Steilacoom, Steilacoom / Chambers Bay, Washington
Type: Saltwater
Difficulty: Intermediate, Advanced
Entry: None Shore Entry , Boat Access
Attractions: Debris, Large Rock Formation / Pinnacle, Boulder Pile / Shelves

The Toliva Shoal is a large pinnacle-like knoll that rises up in the mid channel near Fox Island. The knoll Begins at its shallowest below the marker in only 30 ft from the surface and drops in all directions in a series of clay ledges and cement debris that have been left here creating an additional artificial reef. Depths around the shoal drop to below recreational diving limits, though popular depths for this dive extend to about 80'.

A popular dive profile is to start your dive just west of the marker, descend anywhere from 30-50 ft deep and explore the north and west sides of the shoal which drop off in a series of ledges. In the 50' range a series of cement debris are scattered about the shoal extending beyond the 80 ft depth. Scooter divers may want to explore additional areas of the shoal where the sandy bottom is marked by occasional rocks and boulders.
