Snorkeling and Scuba Diving at Nellies Cove

Nellie's Cove is a very quiet area, away from the Northern and Western exposure of the Pacific. This is a good spot for beginner diving, as well as an easy location to check-out equipment before heading to more advanced sites. The Southern-exposure bay of Nellie's Cove is located at Port Orford. From Highway 101, head South on Oregon Street or Washington Street toward the Cove. Make a right on Port Orford Dock Road, and continue to the large public dock area until you see the landmark below.

Our vis on this dive was as high as 3 feet and as low as 6 inches this past weekend. In the cove you could get the shadows of fish and it might be decent conditions for a hunter as they'd never see you coming. This is Oregon diving and you never know what you'll get from one day to the next. There is a bloom going on right now. Off shore a couple of miles at the reef divers had the same vis until they dropped below 40 feet and then the vis was great. Shore divers got to burn gas is all.
