Wonder how long it will take for more New England divers to find the new scubatoys forum. If anyone else is out there, post up.

I am here - Long Island here - just across the sound. Still drying out from Sat AMs dive... Nothing good really - just one really big horse shoe crab, probably the biggest I have seen yet.

Can you recommend any good dive spots in Lake George?

I'm going to Cutchogue this coming weekend and considering diving Horton's point. Any suggestions? Ever dove there?

Hi there... I am a MA resident and spend most of my summer diving in the Cape Ann area with occasional jaunts to the MA south shore and RI :smiley20:. Anyone else been surrounded lately by billions of juvi shrimp at night? It's ugly.:smiley13:

Have any of you New England divers checked out Brownstone? I pass by there every time I'm coming home from my parents house and keep meaning to check it out but haven't made it yet. Wondering how it compares to Dutch.

I've been there quite a few times. It's a good place to do some training dives since it's close for us. It's not overly large, but they have a navigation course, platforms at various depths and a couple of boats to check out. They have plans to add some more attractions as they come by them. Visibility there varies from a few feet to being decent. It depends on local weather and how busy it's been. All in all, it's worth the trip to do some easy dives and work on skills. The Mrs. and I have season passes and try to get out there once a week to do some training.

I have to hit Brownstone. I knew that there was some kind of quarry action in CT, but that looks pretty great. And only 3 hrs away!

I recently spoke to someone who was just at Brownstone and they told me the vis was only about 5 feet and the water temp was in the 30-40s at depth. Despite this they said it was worth it to go at least once to make the decision for myself.

Brownstone definitely sounds like it's worth checking out at least once. Even that 5' viz could be a good thing--good training for local ocean diving here where viz can be that or worse regularly.

The visibility earlier this year was much better. The past few weeks it has taken a turn for the worse, but it's still a decent dive. Bottom temps are low, but my fiance manages in her semi-dry suit. But she's also very excited about getting her drysuit this week when it finally arrives. She handles the cold better than I do, since I don't think I'd be caught at those temps in a wet suit.

It's worth taking the trip to check it out. And it will only improve as time goes on. They have done a lot of work, and continue to make improvements.
