SHOREHAM TWIN JETTIES

DIRECTIONS:                                  (Shoreham, Suffolk County)

Take the Long Island Expressway to Exit 69 North, Wading River Road. Take this to the end and make a left on North County Road. Take this road to the end and make a left on North Wading River Road. Make a right on Sound Road to the end. The road curves left and becomes Creek Road. Take this to the end, and you will find a small parking lot on the left side. To get to the jetties, you must swim across the creek (Wading River), and then walk. Don't let anyone fool you: it's a long walk, but well worth it. Although there is no sign, I believe that this parking lot is restricted to town residents. There are two other options: drop off your gear and park down the road, or, if you have a four-wheel-drive vehicle, there might be an access road on the west side of the power plant.

CONDITIONS:

Shoreham is definitely a hot spot for lobstering. Over the past few years I've only found the time to dive here about fifteen times, all of which were night dives. Each dive has been rewarded by catching the limit of lobsters.

Both jetties are equally productive, although the west side of the West Jetty has always been a little luckier for me. Visibility at Shoreham always seems to be just a little better than elsewhere on Long Island, and the lack of a strong current makes for a relaxing, almost effortless dive. I have been most thankful for this, considering the length of the walk to get to and from the car.

A couple of years back, when I had planned a night dive at Shoreham, one of my dive buddies talked a friend into bringing two tanks. He figured that by doing two dives, they would catch twice as many lobsters. He was right, but neither will ever try to lug an extra tank down that beach again. They both had to literally drag themselves back to the car.

Even with the long walk, I consider the Shoreham Jetties to be one of the better beach dives on Long Island. Every diver should experience this site at least once.
