Day Island Wall
Tacoma, WA
Type: Saltwater
Difficulty: Advanced
Entry: Easy Shore Entry , Boat Access
Attractions: Wall, Boulder Pile / Shelves

Day Island Wall is an incredible wall dive due to the sheer enormity of the sandstone wall. Though relatively flat, it has many small creatures living on the face of the wall itself and wolf eels can frequently be found in caves at the base or in the shelves at the top of the wall. The bottom runs about 85-110ft with most of the wall being to the left of the entry point if entered from shore.

Swim straight out (pull to the left if anything) until you reach about 60'. If you pulled to the left you will be looking over the edge of the wall. If you find yourself on a very steep collapsed area of the wall then take a left and you will be only a few feet from it. The bottom of the wall is about 90' and several caves can be found with octopus and wolf eels, especially at the south end of the wall where the wall turns into a series of shelves and gets a bit shallower. If you follow the wall all the way to the south end, there are several small ledges around 40'-60' deep that usually house many wolf eels.

The wall also esxtends to the right of the entry point northward toward Titlow. It has more interesting geograpy but it isn't as tall as the left side of the wall. If it is your first time, do the left side first.
