MANHATTAN BEACH REEF DIRECTIONS:    (Brooklyn, Kings County)

Take the Belt Parkway to Coney Island Avenue South. Turn left on Neptune Avenue, then right on West End Avenue. Turn left on Oriental Boulevard, then right on Dover Street. Take Dover South to the end and park.

CONDITIONS:

Located on Long Island's south shore, Manhattan Beach offers divers living on the west end a nice local beach dive. According to Instructor, Bob Lyons, depth of water here ranges from twelve feet at low tide to 20 feet at high.

Divers can navigate to a submerged reef located just offshore by navigating on a 180-degree course for about 150 yards. Once on the reef, divers can hunt for lobsters, spear fish, or even take photographs of the wide variety of local marine life. This marine life includes starfish, anemones, crabs, fluke, flounder, black fish, and even sea urchins.

There is a running current, so dives should be planned for slack tide. Also, because of the seasonal boat traffic and fishermen sporting this site, divers should be well practiced in underwater navigation. This skill will allow divers to visit the reef and return to shore without ever coming to the surface, therefore eliminating most of the danger from passing boats. The trusty dive flag also will play an important role in safely enjoying the undersea environment located at the Manhattan Beach Reef.
