 Featured Site

North Beach Reef
Port Townsend, WA
Type: Saltwater
Difficulty: Snorkling, Beginner, Intermediate
Entry: Moderate Shore Entry , Boat Access
Attractions: Kelp Forest

The North Beach reef is a large shallow bull kelp forest attached to stones and boulders that are covered with sponges, coraline algae, anemones and other colorful invertebrates.

The reef begins about 200 yards NE From the boat ramp. Being subject to intense currents, the site is swept clean of silt and provides a great alternative to other sandy bottom dive sites so common in the Northwest. Large and short bull kelp cover the substrate in the summer months and provide home to varieties of greenling and rockfish, sculpin and perch. Depths reach up to 40ft before the rocky reef gives way sand and cobble.

This site is very similar to the nearby Point Wilson Reef.
