Alki Fishing Reef
West Seattle, wa
Type: Saltwater
Difficulty: Intermediate, Advanced
Entry: None Shore Entry , Boat Access
Attractions: Boulder reefDebris,

This site is made of large stacks of boulders, some as high as 20', sitting on a gradually sloping silt bottom in 60-80 feet of water. Thier are several rock piles in the area ranging up to about 150 feet long. The buoy marks the main one and there are a couple more within a short swimming distance in the same line from shore heading SW from the buoy on the bottom. Use good navigation skills to keep track of where the pile with the bouy chain is so you can asscend the line to your boat.

The reefs are home to schools of good sized rockfish including Blacks, Coppers, and Quillbacks. Linccod, kelp Greenlings and Painted Greenlings also live among the rocks. Most of the rocks are covered with Metridium (white plumerose anemones) which makes the rock piles easier to find. Not much in the way of small sealife is found here.
