For a shallow dive, with a possibility of finding some old Coast Guard artifacts, Twin Lights can make for an enjoyable morning.

Directions: About 5 miles South of Portland on Route 1, hang a left at Oak Hill onto 114 (Gorham Rd). Go for 3 miles merging onto Rt.207 (Black Point Road), then make a left onto 77 (Spunwink Rd.) In about 3.5 miles, bear right onto Bowery Beach Rd. In 2.3 miles, turn right onto East Point Road. Continue down the road, bearing left for 1.7 miles (do not go into the Park); the road will dead end at the dive site.

08/09/2007 Bob Foudriat (Avg: 4.10 Review) - This is a great location. My son and I enjoyed the dive. The entry was very easy because the parking lot is very close. The bottom was rocky and filled with plant and aquatic life. Good place to take the family. There's food and facilities near by.

05/25/2007 Steve Waterhouse (Avg: 3.00 Review) - This place is actually known as "Two Lights" not twin lights. The Two Lights restaurant serves the best Lobster Stew in Maine. After a dive, have a bowl and see why Mainers stay for the winter!

03/29/2004 Curt Johnson (Avg: 3.36 Review) - This was an easy, pleasant dive. I have limited knowledge of New England diving, but it would be considered an average dive as far as sea life is concerned when compared to my normal Pacific Northwest diving. We had a good variety of algae, plant oriented divers would love it. A lot of lobsters (by my standards) as well a good variety of fish. I may have caught it on a bad day, but the visibility was pretty poor. Being mid-summer, I suspect an algae bloom. There are probably times when this is hazardous, but I felt perfectly comfortable as a newcomer.

During the right conditions, entry is very easy. It is an easy walk down to the beach and into the water.
