Evaluation

*Average:    3.54
When Nubble is jam packed with classes, this place is your refuge - If you've got a 10-spot in your pocket! That's right, it's $10 to get in but you'll be rewarded with a very nice shore dive. Parking is around 100' from the entry point. The rocks are just the right size, not so small as to be dangerous to your ankles, but not so large as to call for New England Scuba Climbing (See Cathedral Rocks). Not terribly deep (25' at most), but really nice eelgrass and rocks. The bottom is covered with sealife. The barrier island offshore makes for a nice breakwater, and hence surge and surf aren't going to be a worry for you. If you haven't been diving in New England, this would be a great first dive.
