05/06/2018 Jennsnina (Avg: 3.00 Review) - One hour parking limit and rather inaccessible at low tide. We tried to dive there today, but we came during low tide and while getting down to the water during high tide is already challenging, during low tide it requires a 100 yard climb over seaweed covered rocks. We picked another location further up in Maine for today. We will try again during high tide.

12/04/2005 Manta (Avg: 3.29 Review) - If you had a good BB gun you could hit Pulpit from Seal rocks just to the south. Not a bad site, rocky going out to sandy bottom. Saw a big school of stripers. Tricky entry and exit. Watch the weather. If the wind is from the southeast, be careful, as it will toss you around and you'll be fighting surge.

04/25/2003 Allison Small (Avg: 3.08 Review) - We went here on a whim. It was pretty difficult, but I'm glad I tried it. I don't know if I'll ever get used to cold water diving, after the initial shock I forgot all about it. Be careful of the entry, it is easy to lose your step. Hold on to someone getting in and out.
