ATLANTIC BEACH JETTY


DIRECTIONS:                         (Atlantic Beach, Nassau County)

Note: This location is not accessible by car The only way to dive this site is by boat.

Note 2: In recent years the west side of this jetty has filled in with sand and is now very shallow. Diving may still be possible on the east side or out by the tip.

CONDITIONS:

By boat, it is best to approach the Atlantic Beach Jetty on the inlet or west side. When diving this site, we have always dropped divers off at the southern-most end, or tip of the jetty. After covering the jetty's side, divers can explore the submerged jetty stones that can be found out past the tip. Black fish, striped bass, bregalls, starfish, crabs and lobster are all quite common here, because only a few divers visit these submerged stones. After a predetermined amount of time, the divers would make their way back to the jetty's tip, where the boat would pick them up. Obviously not only a boat, but also a boat tender is needed.

Weather is also a very important factor when planning a dive here, as it will affect the wave action, and a flat, calm sea is preferable. All divers also should be aware of the strong current in Atlantic Beach Inlet.

The Atlantic Beach Jetty is not one of the best beach sites available to divers on Long Island, but the jetty along with the submerged rocks out by the point should definitely be visited by those experienced enough and those with the means of getting there.
