Z's Reef
Fox Island, WA
Type: Saltwater
Difficulty: Intermediate, Advanced
Entry: None Shore Entry
Attractions: Wolf Eels and Giant Pacific OctopusWall, Boulder Pile / Shelves

Zs Reef is a popular boat dive that draws scuba divers because of the resident populations of wolf eels and giant pacific octopus. The dive site is comprised of a short wall running about 200 yards along the shore on the northeast side of Fox Island. The wall is actually a series of rugged natural rocky ledges standing between 10-20 tall, which have a lot of undercuts, crevices, and dens where our large local critters lurk. The top of the wall is about 40 deep and drops to 60 at the highest point. There are some rocks and ledges below the wall too if you have done several dives here and want to explore beyond the main wall.

As mentioned, the big attraction is the near certain encounter with wolf eels and GPOs that you can easily find with a dive light by looking in all the crevices and under cuts at the base of the wall. Other fish that make their home on Zs Reef include lingcod, painted and kelp greenling, rockfish, perch and various sculpin. Many stars, crab, snails and nudibranchs can be found on the wall and the sandy shelf above.
