The Dry Salvages lie a mile east of Avery’s Ledge outside Rockport. The popular dive site hosts a colony of seals with the potential for encounters with inquisitive pups. The rocky channels and cuts also offer some of the best lobster diving in New England. The Dry Salvages can offer shallow water for newer divers, however, the site is exposed to the open Atlantic Ocean and can be awash with shifting winds and currents. Remain vigilant when diving the salvages. This site is a long haul from the harbor so make note of the early departure time.
