Diver examineing the Heroine Wreck

The Heroine wreck is located north of Block Island in about 80 feet of water.   A bit more info about the Heroine Wreck.  We dove the wreck at slack tide so we didnt run into too much bottom current.  The water was fairly cold below 60 feet so both of us were using drysuits.  The visibility wasn't too bad but it's not a bad idea to bring a line reel to help find your way back to the anchor line.  It's also not a bad idea to tie the anchor in because you can get some pretty good swells.

Waterforad boat Launch SCUBA Diving

The Waterford Boat Launch on Dock Road in Waterford is one of a very few places you can dive from shore in Connecticut. In the summer, it can be difficult at times to dive here during the day because of boat traffic and hoards of fisherman on rocks.  This is especially true on holiday weekend and in the summer time however the launch typically clears out as the sun sets and it can make for a decent night dive.  In the winter this area is basically a ghost town so you won't have any problems getting in and out of the water, just be careful if there is snow and ice on the boat launch and parking lot.
