DIRECTIONS:                                                     (Montauk, Suffolk County)

Take Southern State Parkway to Exit 44 East, Sunrise Highway. Stay on Sunrise to Montauk Highway and continue east into the town of Montauk. Turn left onto Second House Road and drive north to the water. Turn right onto Navy Road. Navy Road will end at a gate. This area is private property and permission is needed to park here. If you turn left onto Navy Road, you will end up in a condo development. This is also private property but I have been told that is possible to park just before the condo entrance.


Fort Pond Bay is a good beginner beach dive, and is used quite often by dive shops conducting their open water diver training sessions. Divers can find all types of marine life along with quite a bit of seaweed. Visibility can be very good and, as always, high tide is the best time to plan your dive here.

Back in World War II Fort Pond Bay was used as a U.S. Navy Submarine Base. Because of this military presence, some interesting artifacts have been recovered in the area. Many divers walk or swim to the long pier in front of the condos. On and around the pier, divers have found everything from bullets to bottles, and I know of one diver who was lucky enough to recover a rifle.
