shore dive Long Island or Block

I'm looking to drive down from Canada for some spearfishing on Long Island, NY.

Is there any good shore dive spots in the area ?

I have some family in Smithtown. I'll probably be staying in that area. But I can drive around.

I was also looking into Block Island but accommodations seems to be more expensive.

Looking at mid May for now.
Tks in advance for the help!

Maybe try posting in north atlantic section. Block is a great place. But i know nothing about shore spots. We go out on bassbandit charter when we do block. Good luck.

Re: shore dive Long Island or Block

The good thing about Mid-May on Long Island is that you will be able to park at most beaches without needing a special permit or sticker of any kind. After Memorial Day that changes. You can find spots all along the North Shore. Vis is usually better further East but Mid-May with the water still being cold vis should be decent (for here), I would expect 8 - 12 feet as long as the wind isn't (or hasn't been) blowing North. Look for spots with structure (Jetties, big boulders sticking out of the water etc...)

Block is great but I've never done any shore diving there so can't say wether it would be worth going there. You would have to take a ferry from RI if you want to have your car with you otherwise you could rent a moped when you get there. Accommodations aren't cheap and most of the time there's a five day minimum stay if you can't find hotel room.
