SHINNECOCK 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:                            (Southampton, Suffolk County)

WEST JETTY: Take the Long Island Expressway to Exit 65 South. Make a left on Montauk Highway, then a right on Ponquogue Avenue. Take this to the end and make a left on Shinnecock Avenue. Make a right turn on Foster Avenue. Cross over the Ponquogue Bridge and then make a left on Beach Road. Take this to the end and park in the lot named Charles F. Alterkirch Memorial Park. There is another small lot closer to the jetties, but parking is not allowed.

EAST JETTY: Take the Long Island Expressway to Exit 65 South. Make a left on Montauk Highway and drive east. Parking is limited and the walk is long. I have seen four-wheel-drive vehicles here, which definitely make things easier.


While diving either jetty, always be sure not to dive in the inlet or on the inlet side of the jetty. This is illegal, and, if caught, fines will be given. Diving is usually done on the beach side of the West Jetty. I would recommend high slack tide for the best visibility. On the west side, for example, depth averages about five feet. I am told that out by the point there is a deep spot in excess of 50 feet.

I will not even try to describe all of the marine life that thrives at both of these sites, but let me just say that I have always been amazed at the variety and quantity.

This site is well known among local divers. Most first time visitors see only enough to make them want to return. So, if you do visit this site, don't expect to find a deserted jetty, but have no fear, there's room enough for all.
