Overview of Hobsonville Point

Hobsonville Point

Oregon
USA West

Home

Hobsonville Point is an out-of-the-way dive site with no facilities, but a lot of scenery! Look for crabs, clams, and treasure. Once on the beach you'll notice that there use to be a large dock on the point, so who knows what you'll find!

Directions: From Portland, take Highway 26 West to Highway 6 West into Tillamook on the coast. Drive North 9.9 miles into the Heart of Garibaldi. Now do a U-turn and drive 2.4 miles South back to the turn-off below (or just drive 7.5 miles North of Tillamook!)

02/25/2008 Anonymous (Avg: 2.39 Review) - We did this site on a really nice sunny day in February. The entry was the easiest, but he animal and plant life were less than expected. This is what I imagine the moon being like if it was covered with water. You could limit on clams in a hurry, but good luck on crabs, we saw only one. A ton of hermit crabs. The vis was about 8'. Next time up there I might try the lumber dock or the jetty.

02/06/2004 Dave E Janca (Avg: 2.83 Review) - This was my third Pacific NW dive. Hit it in the fall. Good vis but poor life at that time of year. Lots of small crabs and plenty of oyster/clams/scallops. No big fish to talk about, but plenty of open shallow spaces. Great for a beginner dive.

It's an easy wade into the water. Be careful of underwater protrusions from the old dock.
