Snorkeling and Scuba Diving at Newport Pier

The Newport Pier offers an interesting dive for the adventurer. You can dive to 100 feet or more if you want to go beyond the pier; you can traverse the bottom looking for the creatures-of-the-sand; or you can explore under the pier for piling creatures or artifacts from the fishermen above! Head down to New Port Beach. Off the Pacific Coast Highway, turn South on West Balboa Blvd. After 1.2 miles, you should run into the Pier!

The beach is very popular in the summer, but since the best time to dive this area is in the Fall through Spring, you may have the beach to yourself. You will want to enter near the pier area. Talk to one of the life guards for recommendations, or get the straight scoop from a local dive shop. You'll find the requisite volley ball and picnic areas, along with facilities for every other summertime activity.
