This is a wonderful dive for aquatic life sightings. This is a SHALLOW dive and must be dove with the tides. Here you will find an array of fishes, rays, horseshoe crab, other crab species incl. arrow crab, LARGE cushion stars, and many other interesting finds. There are 3 small wrecks that I know of. You will park at the Phil Foster park - which is nice, they have bathrooms and showers. There is a shower next to the play ground, directly out from that shower you will find the first wreck, approx. a 30 - 35' cabin cruiser, straight on out further from it you will find an approx. 30 - 35' sail boat. There is another wreck to your left, but I haven't dove it yet. The wrecks are teaming with life and a pleasure to take pics. Please do use caution as this is in a boating area and on an inter coastal waterway. ENJOY!
