MORICHES JETTY

DIRECTIONS:                                                (Fire Island, Suffolk County)

NOTE: A four-wheel-drive vehicle, and a Suffolk County Beach Permit is needed to access this site.

Take the Long Island Expressway to Exit 68 South, William Floyd Parkway. Drive south to the end (7.8 miles) and turn left onto Fire Island Beach Road. Drive as far east as you can. It's at least five miles over soft sand before you get to the jetty.

CONDITIONS:

Since only divers with four-wheel-drive vehicles or boats can get to this jetty, conditions are unspoiled. Located on the inlet's west side, the jetty's depth of water ranges from about five to 25 feet. On the northwest end, divers can explore submerged rocks, which, in the words of Captain Steve Bielenda, "make a fantastic beach dive". As with other south shore inlets, divers should realize that a strong current is present at all but slack tides.

Divers who plan to get here by boat should be aware that Moriches Inlet is closed to boating, so access is only available from the bay side.

I would only recommend this site to divers experienced in working in and around strong currents. Keep an eye on the wind, weather and tide. Picking a day to dive this site based on the best overall conditions will give you the best chance to truly enjoy this slightly remote but fascinating jetty.
