Long Description:


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. Diving is not allowed on Sundays.
