King’s Beach is a shore accessible salt water dive site, located at Ocean Drive, Newport, RI 02840. This dive site has an average rating of 3.75 out of 5 from 16 scuba divers. The maximum depth is 36-40ft/11-12m. The average visibility is 5-10ft/2-3m.

About 1/4 mile from Bretton Point. Solid dive site used by classes for their open water certification. This site is used to supply many areas of Narragansett Bay with eel grass. It is fun to look for tropicals here in the fall. Usually butterflies and short big eyes. During the summer I like to dive around the island with the cormorants and hunt tautog on the backside. Founder may be found on the flats. Not a great site for lobster, but they are there. Depths to about 40’ from shore.
