A four-wheel-drive vehicle, and a
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.
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
Divers who plan
to get here by boat should be aware that Moriches Inlet is
boating, so access is only available from the bay side.
I would only
recommend this site to divers experienced in working in and
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.
