Evaluation

*Average:    2.57
This dive is a long walk from the parking lot, but worth every step. I recommend using a two wheeler to hump the gear, you can make it within 150 yards of shore, then carry it the remaining distance. I had my non-diving buddies help with the long haul and a promise of lobster. Plan your entry carefully as well as your dive plan. I saw many types of marine life, crabs, stripers, starfish as well as many lobsters. The bottom was really cool with many types of rock formations and granite piles litter the bottom. In 25 feet, I caught an extremely massive lobster, we estimated 20 lbs plus, we all agreed it was the largest we ever saw. This is an exciting site; watch the current and make reference points on the shore. Take the scenic hike slow, and I hope to see you there!!!
