08/21/2005 Dave M. (Avg: 3.57 Review) - High slack tide is an absolute must here. I generally enter the water 35 mins after high tide, which gives about 40 mins before the outgoing current starts to rip. The town recently added a floating dock next to the bridge, reserved strictly for divers entry/exit. No more climbing over the rocks.

07/17/2005 Lou (Avg: 4.77 Review) - Excellent dive. Dive high slack. Parking by permit or dive north side without permit. Many blackfish, seabass and occ. striper. Late August and September has many tropicals in area and can be collected. I have seen many small groupers, butterfly fish, one purple tang and a couple of angelfish. Remember HIGH SLACK for visibility and safety.

03/18/2005 Luis Monroy (Avg: 4.11 Review) - I have done over 100 dives here. The only thing that worries me is the current before and after slack. It is always good to anticipate slack. I have done so many dives here that I don't mine days with poor visibility; I just enjoy a specific spot under the bridge. I can spend over one hour under the bridge. My longest is 101 minutes. Great place for night dive, too. Divers have said that this is the best spot in the Northeast area and I believe so.

11/25/2004 Anonymous (Avg: 4.21 Review) - Entering the water in the fall is easy and fast ... not many folks fishing off the dock. I suggest you wade to the dock in the water and then submerge when you get there. Beginner divers need to especially exercise caution because you really need to be on top of the time and conditions around you. When the slack is over, the current comes on fast and strong and gets to be a bit of a tough swim (from experience). Otherwise, it's scenic with lots of animal life and rather enjoyable. I went in after a storm and vis was about 10 feet. I'm told most of the time vis is about 30+ feet, enough to see the next bridge post under water. Its a popular spot but you need a parking permit.

11/09/2003 Jason Wood (Avg: 3.74 Review) - Dives must be executed during slack tide. The best time to dive this site is during High Slack.
