Good morning Greg, on the Cape that’s going to depend on which direction the wind is blowing but the other side isn’t that long of a drive. When I was stationed at Otis AFB I had just started SCUBA and was looking for beach dives but never found anything but sand and in the 60’s there wasn’t a LDS or dive boat.

We did a whale watching trip out of P-town and even that on a big boat got blown out 3 days :(

Falmouth area has better fishing than diving from what I remember. Lots of blues and stripers but you may want to find some fish reports before you go. Not sure of the regulations either it has been a while. But a RI license may work in MA...

May look into some shore dives like Fort Wetherill RI or Cape Ann (Gloucester) MA - not sure if it is worth trailering the boat to either place since shore diving is fairly easy.

Hi Greg. Search "Port Hunter/ Hedge Fence Shoals ". It’s a WW1 cargo ship that went down in 1918 on the shoals between Falmouth and the Vineyard. It was in a collision with another ship, the captain managed to run it up on the edge of the shoal. If I recall its in the 40-80’ depth range. Visibility not bad, definitely a slack tide dive though. Rests somewhat upright, has large railroad car wheels chained to the deck.

Rick,
Are the Coordinated accurate?
If you are looking for a buddy that week keep me in mind.
We will plenty of divers but would welcome more.
Thanks
Greg
