Many divers are not aware that some of the world's best wreck diving is right here under their noses. The area South of Long Island and East of New Jersey is known as Wreck Valley for good reason -- it's littered with ship wrecks of every size and description. It's a very different kind of wreck diving that what you may have experienced on vacation in the tropics, but we think it's about the most exciting diving there is.
There is something for just about every diver here in Wreck Valley. Whether you're interested in sightseeing, observing marine life, exploring wrecks, collecting artifacts, hunting, photography, or you just enjoy being in the water, you can do it here.
The local diving seas on lasts from April through November, though some people dive year round. Numerous boats in Brooklyn, Long Island, and New Jersey visit wrecks between 20 minutes to 7 hours away on Saturdays and Sundays; some boats also go out on Wednesdays and Fridays. There are also many opportunities for beach diving. If you prefer fresh water, Dutch Springs is a great destination to start with. A day of local diving takes you to a completely different world, and is like a mini-vacation.
