Misery Point Reef is an artificial reef comprised of erie grey concrete slabs and steel I-beams, remnants from the old Hood Canal Bridge. Apparently, the WDFW sank the debris here for a fish habitat and to create a fishing reef. The shallow end lies about 45' deep and it extends to 80'. Off the reef the bottom is predominately flat and sandy.
It is a good location to find lingcod, cabazon, rockfish, perch and greenling. In the sand divers may encounter ratfish, skates, flatfish, gobies, etc. Moderate invertebrate life, including plumose anemones, cucumbers and sea stars, now cling to the reef adding color and continues to grow making this reef a natural work in progress.
Beware of boat traffic and fishing line/lures. Recommended as a live boat site - Current can be an issue here as well as winds both from the north and southwest. The site is expansive and it may be difficult to locate anchor lines for a safe ascent, coupled with current and you may have difficulties returning to an anchored boat.
How to get there:
Located north of the navigational marker north of Misery Point near Seabeck Bay.
