Nubble Light House, Cape Neddick - York ME


Loading...
Great dive site. Get there early, especially on Saturdays as parking is limited.

There is no diving there on Sundays and holidays.

Also the favored dive site is on the left side where there is a small walk way and a small rowboat by the waters edge thats the best entrance area L00K out for fisherman casting lines.

One of the most popular training sites in Maine , thanks to fairly calm conditions and shallow depths, Nubble Light in York Beach on Cape Neddick gets its name for the lighthouse perched on a close-to-the-mainland island. First illuminated in 1879, the Nubble Light lighthouse is now a local landmark. A protected cove calms water conditions at the dive site and entry is from a rocky shoreline. The dive itself is in and about the rock walls of the cove, and average depths of 20-40 feet (6-12 m) make it a good spot for new divers. Arrive early, as Nubble Light can get crowded.

I went scuba diving here on 8/27/2016. Average viz: 11-15ft/3-5m. Water temp: 61-65°F/16-18°C.
Went on the Saturday morning excursion with the folks from Atlantic Aqua Sport in Rye, NH. Lobsters, Crabs, Blood Stars, and Flounder! Great fun. easy access and easy to get as deep or stay as shallow as you like. To join Atlantic Aqua Sport fun on Saturday mornings at 08, just show up there with your gear (call ahead to rent gear or tanks so they’ll be sure to have it ready for you) and join in on the fun. The only cost is gear rental. Lots of great people and a chance to make new dive buddies!
