Notes about things regarding scuba diving that I have come to know.

Pete's Southern Maine Regional Dive Site Guide
Cape Neddick Beach, York

This is a shallow and very sheltered site. As you can see in the satelite image the basin of the cove is mainly a sandy expanse but the sides are lined with interesting ledges and there are a few scattered outcroppings in the open areas.

Parking is on broad shoulders on the side of the road and restricted to residents during the summer season. In the off season no one should bother you.

We have made the "yellow" dive along the left side of the cove and it was enjoyable even on a day when things were stirred up. A buddy who is a resident has been there often and speaks highly of venturing around the point on the right hand side as well.

Between parking restrictions and the modesty of the site it's not a big draw for divers but at the right time with the right conditions it can save the day. It also gets high marks as a skin-dive site.
