Point Defiance North Wall
Point Defiance, Tacoma, WA
Type: Saltwater
Difficulty: Advanced
Entry: None Shore Entry , Boat Access
Attractions: Wall

The north wall is a beautifully sculpted clay wall that starts in about 20 feet of water and goes down to 80 feet or so. Unlike a lot of the other walls in the area, this one descends in a series of shelves and walls like a giant stair step. Some of the steps are a few feet tall, and some are 20-30 feet tall. Some of them are carved under and overhanging. Some of the shelves are wide enough that with poor vis you might think you are at the bottom. As you move further east, the wall gets smaller, and their are even blocks of the wall that have fallen to the bottom creating more fish habitat.

As far as life goes, you can find Warbonnetts, small Octopus, various Sculpins greenlings and rockfish in the nooks on the wall. You may find wolf eels too, it seems like their kinda’ place. The scenery is more dramatic the closer you get to the point.
