MATTITUCK TWIN JETTIES 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)

WEST JETTY: Take the Long Island Expressway to Exit 73, Old Country Road. Old Country will change names to Main Road. Drive east until you pass under a train trestle, then drive .8 miles and turn left on Factory Avenue. Take Factory to the end and turn left. Drive through Middle Road and make the first right on Cox Neck Road, then left on Luthers (Breakwater) Road. Continue all the way to the end and park.

EAST JETTY: Take Old Country Road, which will merge into Main Road. Turn left onto Wickham Avenue. Make a left onto Mill Lane, then another left on East Mill or Oregon, and then right onto Reeve Avenue. Make a left turn on Baile Beach Road, and take it to the end. Parking is available on either side of the two jetties.


I have always had good luck at this site. Visibility can be very good, but it can also be very bad. No matter what the visibility, I've found more than enough aquatic life to keep me occupied. Lobstering, of course, is always high on a beach diver's list of dive objectives. I don't think anyone will be disappointed, but lobsters have been a little scarce here for the past few years.

Overall, I prefer the East Jetty. Spear fishing for black fish out by the point can be very rewarding. As is the case with all inlets, divers should be aware of the currents and the heavy boat traffic during summer months.
