I love this dive site. What really differentiates advanced vs. beginner dive sites in New England is the ease of entry/exit. This one would qualify for a advanced entry, especially at low tide. There's two ways to approach the entry point at this dive site. One is to carry all your equipment with you and don down on the rocks (usually the way I go, but it depends on whom I'm diving with). The other is to don your equipment at the car and walk down fully geared and straight into the water; it's not as bad as it seems if you're in pretty good shape. At high tide the entry is just a step off the ledge. At low tide it's a bit more challenging. The diving, straight out, drops quickly to 80' and brrrr cold. I think the best diving is in the shallows 20-40' to left or right of entry.
