Description

Mike's Reef is a collection of man-made artificial reef items that have been sunk for the entertainment of the divers that visit the resort. Items include a large assortment of appliances, a couple of boat wrecks and a great tire reef. Simple shore access and a gradual sloping bottom can take divers to reef items at 80' or beyond but most of the artificial structure lies in 30-50fsw. A map is available at the office.

Special Restrictions:

A day use fee is required for those not staying at the resort. Shore access to nearby Flagpole is also accessible through Mike's Beach Resort.

How to get there:

The resort is off the east side of Hwy 101 about 5 miles north of Lilliwaup. For more information about conditions, day passes, or lodging, you can visit the Mike’s Beach Resort website.

Mike's Beach Resort is an incredible quaint dive resort on Hood Canal's west shoreline, perfectly placed between the popular shore dives to the south like Sund Rock, Octopus Hole, and Jorsted Creek, and the dynamic boat dives to the north such as The Pinnacle and Pulali Point. It has a small boat launch and dock and on-site air-fill station.

This is actually a pretty cool dive site considering there's no real natural reef structure. The tire reefs are the best I've seen around the sound and there are several small wrecks to explore. Expect to see MANY squat Lobsters and divers frequently encounter octopus underneath the wrecks.
This site makes a nice Hood Canal alternative dive to Sund Rock and Octo Hole, and it is a great place to stay if lodging is needed.
