Saltwater State Park
Des Moines, WA
Type: Saltwater
Difficulty: Beginner, Intermediate
Entry: Moderate Shore Entry , Boat Access
Attractions: Debris, Tire Reef, Eel Grass Beds

Saltwater State Park installed a new artificial reef in early 2009 made of very large stacked granite boulders and cement pilings. There are three parallel "fingers" to the reef extending away from shore. After a very long, shallow swim over sand flats toward the marker buoys, the bottom will start to drop off at about 25' deep. At the top of each of the three fingers, there is a long stretch of rocks starting about 30' deep that lead to the stacked boulders which extend from 50' down to 80'. The stacks are impressively tall, reaching over 10' from the bottom in the deeper end. There is a trail of blocks connecting the reefs at the 40-50' range in case you end up between the fingers on your way out. There are white buoys marking the boundaries of the reef.

In the sandy flats between the reef expect to see all the local varieties of flat fish, Ratfish, Dogfish, etc.
