    Tanker´┐Żs Reef or Shale Beds is located within Del Monte Beach in Monterey. The area is composed of a series of shoals that are 150 to 200 yards from the beach. These ledges run from the Monterey Beach Hotel to 200 yards north of Wharf #2. The depth range is 40 to 50 feet. There is a kelp bed from the ledges to the surface. This adds protection for the variety of sea life that inhabits this location. Flounders, octopuses, sponges, anemones, and fringe-head blennies are among the commonly seen organisms. Closer to the bottom divers will often find rays and skates.
