LAUREL LAKE New York Beach Diving Guide for scuba divers.
The complete scuba divers beach diving guide to Long Island, NY's shipwrecks, jetties and inlets complete with driving directions.


DIRECTIONS:                                   (Southold, Suffolk County)

NOTE: Diving is presently not permitted at this site. I'm going to give basic directions and dive site conditions just in case the situation changes in the future.

Take the Long Island Expressway to Exit 73 East, Old Country Road. Take this east into the town of Laurel. Old Country will have changed into Main Road. Turn left onto Laurel Lake Drive, which is a small dirt road. If you drive under the train trestle, you have missed Laurel Lake Drive.


When diving was permitted, this was a good site to enjoy the fresh water environment. Divers could observe all types of fresh water marine life, including bass, trout, perch, catfish and freshwater clams. The lake, which encompasses approximately 25 acres, reaches a depth of about 40 feet. The water is always cold, so even during the summer, a full wet suit or dry suit is needed.

Aside from fish watching and the lake's ability to cleanse dive gear of salt water, bottle collectors often used the lake's silty bottom as one of their prime hunts. By reaching their arms deep into the mud bottom, often only yards from shore, divers have discovered an interesting array of ancient local bottles.
