Snorkeling and Scuba Diving at East Shore Park

Quite possibly the only place to legally dive Cayuga Lake from the shore. Because of this the Cornell open water SCUBA class will sometimes teach students here. The water remains quite shallow for quite some distance, making it unlikely you can swim to over twenty feet depth. From downtown Ithaca take the 13 just past Ithaca High School to the 34. Make a left onto the 34, and follow it about a quarter mile. East Shore Park will be on the left.

I only dove here because after years of free diving I decided to finally get SCUBA certified through Cornell University. The boat had issues, so we went here. It was nothing special in any respect but one. That they let us dive at all. There is some great diving in upstate NY, however as best as I can tell shore diving is nearly impossible! Beach access is almost non-existent. This may drive me back to this site out of lack of more interesting options within 2 hours.
