Dive Spots: Visit A Different Side Of Maine

Summer: There are some opportunities that you just can’t pass up and going on a diving trip is one of them. Diving is a great way to see what life is really like in the waters of Maine. Diving off Monhegan Island is popular with divers because of the beautiful underwater terrain and the abundance of marine life. It is not uncommon for divers to be swimming along with seals in this area. There are plenty of dive charter companies that can accommodate most skill levels from basic to advance. Some of these charter companies even offer shark cage dives. Divers go down in a submersed cage and view sharks that are common to Maine waters like blue sharks. Another very popular dive spot is the wreckage site of the Empire Knight off of Boon Island Ledge. This dive site offers a fully intact vessel that is full of marine life. Other popular places to check out are the Nubble Light again, diving in this area offers a chance for viewing tons of marine life and swimming with the seals. Piscataqua River offers a train wreckage dive site that has grown in popularity. If you are not a diver but, think this sounds interesting there are dive classes which can be taken through dive retailers and charter companies. Getting certified is not as hard as you think and could unlock a world that you thought never existed under the Maine sea.
