Evaluation

*Average:    3.35
I love diving in New England; we have the ocean in our blood. The cold water, the tough entries, the rough currents, bring 'em on baby. This site has close parking. I parked at the end of Lexington Ave. My dive buddy and I suited up at the truck and walked about 300 feet to the entry point. OK PAY ATTENTION!!! As you head out on to the rocks, proceed to the left (we found this much easier). I saw other divers being pummeled over on the right side [OUCH]. After carefully entering the water, we descended to 10 feet. The dive was very cool, with a green luminescent overtone. There were various rock formations teaming with lobster. [I took 10 keepers home for my Sunday Surf and Turf ritual] The ocean was surging at a depth of 30+ feet and it was fun to drift and observe marine life. The exit was tough. Take your time and save a little extra air just in case you need rest. [The waves can make a snorkel difficult]. All-in-all a great dive, especially if you're hungry. Be extra careful on this one and I hope to see you there.
