This is where you will find one of the area's deepest dive. Parking is close by and with a short walk down some rock ledges with your equipment. We've never had any issues with not being able to find a spot. I consider it an intermediate dive spot because the shore exit can be difficult. You have to remember: You're not a New England Diver until you wipe out with all your equipment on. If you dive this at high tide, it makes the experience much easier. You can drop down to about 80' and there's usually several anemones and rock fish on the way. This site used to be swarming with fish but over the years there are far fewer. This site is not to be missed if you are making the whirl-wind tour of Cape Ann diving. This remains one of my favorite spots.
