Pulali Point - South Tip | USA: Pacific Northwest
South Pulali Point
Aquatic Life: 5
Wall, Boulder Pile / Shelves
Pulali Point South Tip is the shallowest of the three dive sites at the popular Pulali Point, ranging from 20'-70' deep, and hints at the structure found at the more dynamic adjacent reefs. It is an excellent spot for a follow-up dive from one of the deeper walls or for divers not yet ready to plunge over deep walls.
From the shore at the south tip, descend and immediately begin to explore the series of short ledges, walls and rocky structures that make up the dive site. Large leafy rack kelp covers much of the reef above 30' but below this divers will find a great deal of colorful life. Gunnels, warbonnets, gobies, ronquil and sculpin dart everywhere while the reef is arrayed in colorful invertebrates such as crab, nudibranchs, anemones, sea squirts, cucumbers, and stars. toward the deeper reaches of the reef you'll encounter rockfish, kelp greenling and lingcod.
In the deep you can expect to see large schools of blacks and multiple other species of rockfish, lingcod and greenling. As you reach shallower water the color brightens with varieties of kelp, sponges, tunicates, nudibranchs and crab.
Check your anchor.
How to get there:
Located on the southern tip of Pulali Point. Anchor in 15-20' deep along the shoreline. Check your anchorage upon descent because much of the bottom is bedrock and assure the anchor isn't on the edge of a drop-off.
Pulali Point West Reef is in the little cove to the west.
Pulali Point East Wall is located along the bluff to the east.
