DIRECTIONS:                      (Port Washington, Nassau County)

Take the Long Island Expressway to exit 39N. Take Glen Cove Road north to Northern Blvd. Turn left on Nothern Blvd and head west to West Shore Drive. Turn right on West Shore Drive and head north. Hempstead Harbor Park will be on your right side.

CONDITIONS:

Hempstead Harbor Park is one of the Nassau County Parks recently opened to scuba divers. Divers will need a leisure pass and a Nassau County Diving Permit, available from the Eisenhower Park Administration Building to access this site.

According to Janice Raber, this site offers ample parking with bathrooms and a short walk to an easy water entry. It's a great place for open water training. According to Darryl Steinhauser, the best diving is found on the north end of the park. Maximum depth is about 20 feet and the bottom composition is a mix of small rocks, sand and in some areas mud. Divers should note that the Pier is used frequently by fisherman. If diving under or near the pier, be very careful of encounters with lost monofilament line and fishing hooks.
