GREENPORT JETTY

DIRECTIONS:                                  (Southold, Suffolk County)

Take the Long Island Expressway east to Exit 73, Old Country Road. Drive east on Old Country Road, through the traffic circle, and make a left onto Northville Turnpike. Drive north to the end and turn right on Sound Avenue. Continue east. Sound Avenue will become Middle Road and then Main Road. Drive for .5 miles and turn right on Beach Road. Drive .3 miles and turn right on Bay Road. This will take you to the jetty, but not to any parking. Go back to Manhasset and drive south into Norman E. Klipp Marine Park, or public beach to park. In season, this parking lot is posted as open by permit only. I was told that non­residents would be charged for beach access.

CONDITIONS:

The Greenport Jetty is located on the south side of the north fork. This jetty has to be one of the longest on Long Island, as it seems to go on forever. Visibility in the area is usually good, since the jetty is protected from northwest winds. Even winds from the south don't seem to disturb the bottom too much.

Divers exploring the jetty at night have reported seeing squid, mantis shrimp, sleeping black fish, clams, scallops, mussels and even a good supply of the ever popular lobster.

From the public beach, there is about a half-mile walk to the jetty, so I would only recommend this site to those who are used to this type of walk while carrying or wearing full dive gear.
