    Has anybody dove these spots? I see them on maps, but none of the dive shops around here have listed trips to them. I'd love to visit them...

    What little I have done on research - does not provide good GPS or site descriptions - so I gave up on trying to figure it out. It is almost like the state does not want you to use the sites.

    NJ Artificial reefs have tons of information and DGPS coordinates...

    I have a nautical chart that shows the locations with lat/long; I was just wondering if anybody ever went there...

    The superstructure of the old bridge was sunk there as an artificial reef, after it was blown up a few years ago.

    It's fairly well known among collectors as a productive spot for juvenile tropical fish in late summer, Gulf Stream strays.

    Since you are from Rhode Island, which LDS do you use? I have visited with Giant Strides of Warwick but have not dove with them yet.

    I have dived with Giant Stride on occasion, but my main shop is The Dive Shop in Newport, since I live closer to them. Both have good operations, but Giant Stride seems a little more professional. The difference is not big, though, and I've heard Hymie in Newport recommend that people go to Red at Giant Stride for things he doesn't do, so there seems to be some good professional respect between the shops.
