07/07/2009 Mike from Quincy (Avg: 3.55 Review) - I dove here July 3rd. Despite the huge crowds and monster waves at Hampton Beach, it was pretty calm with decent visibility (10-12 ft) in the cove.

07/19/2005 James (Avg: 2.45 Review) - Fairly poor visibility, less than 6FT. Bottom conditions are sandy for inner most cove, but as you move outward there are several bolder fields that shelter lobster. In the far left corner of the cove about 50-55 yards off shore there is a trench with very large boulders that offers great spear fishing for bluefish, stripedbass, and flounder.
