Battleship Island west side

Type: Saltwater-OpenOcean
Difficulty: Intermediate, Advanced
Entry: None Shore Entry , Boat Access
Attractions: Wall, Kelp Forest

The island is a preserve so don't go ashore. Underwater the wall starts at 15 feet with kelp and descends to about 65 feet with some shelves along the way. Most of the rock is covered with invertebrates because of the current including urchins, orange cup corals, orange social ascidians, chitons, nudibranchs, Oregon tritons, shiny orange sea squirts, sea stars and more. Fish includes lingcod, rockfish, greenlings, sculpins. The highlight is finding large Puget Sound king crab. Often they are just molted so the colors are magnificent. They are protected - do not take any of these crab.
