Atlantic Beach Bridge & Old Bridge is a boat accessible salt water dive site, located in Atlantic Beach, NY. The maximum depth is 26-30ft/8-9m. The average visibility is 5-10ft/2-3m.

Can be a beach dive but an attended boat would be better.

From Aqua Explorers:

This actually two dive sites, under the new bridge and the remains of the old bridge.

About 50 feet east of the Atlantic Beach Bridge lie the remains of its predecessor. All that is left on the bottom is a long narrow group of rocks, concrete and pilings. For years, the location was easily spotted by looking for the remaining concrete structure in the otherwise wood bulkhead on either side of Reynolds Channel. Unfortunately, it is no longer easy to find as the concrete is now covered with new wood bulk-heading. The location will be found approximately 50 feet east of the new bridge. Diving the Old Bridge can be very rewarding. Not only is this area good for spear fishing and finding an occasional lobster, but divers will usually find a good assortment and variety of lost boat anchors.

Take Sunrise Highway into the town of Lynbrook; turn south onto Broadway and continue. Broadway will change into Empire Avenue. Drive south, cross over Seagrit Boulevard and turn left on Seagrit Avenue. Then turn right on Beach 6th Street and take it to the end. Parking is usually not a problem.
