- What To See
wreck of the barge to the east?
marine life such as sea anemones, perch and many more
strong currents crossing to train bridge support
easiest time to cross is at the change of tides
novice to advanced
As most know, there is a rope from shore to the wood pilings.
What some might not know is that this rope also continues
along the port side of the wreck (right side heading out).
It can be found on the sandy bottom next to the wreck.
It continues out to the third train bridge support.
The rope passes along several objects...one that looks
like a large metal box...freezer size.
The rope makes getting out there easier, but when the currrent
is running strong I don't recommend it. It is a long way out...
so, keeping an eye on your air is very important.
