Diving off the rocks near the beach is common, bblhed, but flags are called for since the boat launch is nearby and idiots abound. I wouldn't want to see any APUGger beheaded by a crazy powerboater. My brother-in-law is a professional diver and has lots of experience in the area- he lives just a few miles away and would be happy to suggest venues for a dive. He might have the appropriate float and flag as well, should you want to plan ahead with us. If you're coming from LI, just get to the ferry at Orient Point. We can pick you up at New London- it's only a few miles from the cottage. (I looked at your affiliations and saw Long Island Large Format.)
Drew, I'm happy to see you chime in as well! I'll have the coffee on for you.
