MAKAMAH

DIRECTIONS:                              (Huntington, Suffolk County)

Take the Long Island Expressway to Exit 52 North, Commack Road. This will change names and eventually turn into Bread and Cheese Hollow Road. Turn left onto Fort Salonga Road, then make a right turn onto Makamah Road and take it to the end.

NOTE: There might be some parking problems at this site. /n the past the small parking lot at the end of Fort Salonga Road was available, hut I've heard that now it is closed.

CONDITIONS:

According to local divers, this location doesn't offer too much in the way of aquatic life, but it can serve as a good warm-up dive after the winter.

If legal parking can be found, divers can find some big rocks about 100 to 150 yards otishore. These boulders can be found by swimming on a 70-degree compass course where they will be exposed at low tide, and submerged at high. This area is definitely the best shot divers have at finding lobsters. In between these scattered boulders, a clean sand bottom, some bottom fish and crabs can usually be found. Boat traffic is heavy, but is usually concentrated out past the rocks and poses little danger to inshore diving.

Overall, this site is nice for a leisurely dive on the north shore, but aquatic activity is minimal.
