01 ANNISQUAM SHORES

Annisquam Shores is a 1/2 mile expanse of rocky coast from the Annisquam Lighthouse on Wigwam Point east-northeast to Davis Neck. Water depths reach 12 to 20 feet at a distance of 1/4 mile from shore.

02 DAVIS NECK

Davis Neck is a prominent peninsula protruding 1/4 mile out to sea from the east end of Annisquam Shores...it separates Annisquam Shores from (and forms the west shore of ) Hodgkin's Cove.

03 HODGKIN'S COVE

The inner shore of Hodgkin's Cove is about 1/8 mile long and is flanked on its west side by Davis Neck and on its east side by a thin 1/4 mile long jetty. Hodgkin's Cove is a very well protected inlet; its soundings reach to only 18 feet at its mouth. The inner waters of the cove are considered by some to be an anchorage area and therefore off-limits to scuba diving.

04 BAY VIEW SHORES

The extent of Bay View Shores is a little over 1/4 mile of rocky coast from Hodgkin's Cove to Plum Cove. At extreme low tide two rock reefs are visible immediately offshore, one about midway along the coast and the other at the north end just adjacent to Plum Cove. Depths to 18 feet are reached up to a distance of 1/8 mile offshore.

05 PLUM COVE

Map

Plum Cove's inner shore is about 100 yards long and is flanked on its southwest side by Bay View Shores and on its northeast side by Lanesville Shores South. Plum Cove changes dramatically between high and low tide. The center of the cove has a rock island which is exposed at low tide and is completely covered at high tide. Because of its gentle sloping bottom, and rocky boundaries on both sides, Plum Cove is a popular site for scuba instructors conducting open water training dives...it's a good starting place for beginner divers. The cove's center island and the offshore reefs are excellent lobstering grounds.

06 LANESVILLE SHORES SOUTH

The extent of Lanesville Shores South is a little less than 1/2 mile of granite coast from Plum Cove to Lanes Cove. A U.S. Coast Guard maintained "aid-to-navigation" unlighted can buoy (green...#1) marks the outer limit of an extensive rock reef which borders the northeast side of Plum Cove. Depths all around the reef range from 12 to 18 feet, dropping to 30 feet just seaward of the buoy. Soundings along Lanesville Shores South vary from 12 to 30 feet less than 1/4 mile offshore.

07 LANES COVE (Mouth-Of-Lanes-Cove)

Map

Lanes Cove is a restricted anchorage area...diving is not permitted. The "Mouth-Of-Lanes-Cove" (the ocean outside the cove), separating Lanesville Shores South from Lanesville Shores North, is relatively shallow (less than 6 feet at low tide) but drops quickly to 30 feet about 100 yards from the cove entrance.

08 LANESVILLE SHORES NORTH

The extent of Lanesville Shores North is one mile of rocky coast from Lanes Cove to Folly Point. Water depths reaching 30 feet are experienced at distances of 200 to 300 yards offshore.

09 FOLLY POINT

Folly Point is one of the most northerly features of Cape Ann. Folly Point separates Lanesville Shores North from Folly Cove. Like a great foot, the ocean lapping at its instep, Folly Point thrusts its toe 300 yards out to sea into 60 feet of water.

10 FOLLY COVE

Map

Folly Cove is a triangular indentation in the northern coastline of Cape Ann. The cove's east bank follows Route 127. From the inner bouldered shore, the cove's west bank (called "the wall") extends over 1/4 mile to Folly Point and is the more popular dive site. Between the cove's west bank and east bank is a broad flat sandy plain. The distance across the cove, at its mouth, is about 1/4 mile. Depths in the cove vary, gradually dropping to 60 feet at the mouth. The cove is best dived by swimming along one of its edges.

11 HALIBUT SHORES

Halibut Shores is a gentle curving rocky shore, about 1/2 mile long, extending from Folly Cove to Halibut Point. Depths of 60 feet are reached at a distance of 300 yards from shore.

12 HALIBUT POINT

Halibut Point is the most northern part of Cape Ann. It is an abrupt curve in the coast, extending for a distance of 1/2 mile from Halibut Shores to Hoop Pole Cove. The bottom slopes down to a depth of 60 feet about 300 yards from shore. Sailing ships would "haul about" the point..."haul about" eventually was contracted to "halibut".

13 HOOP POLE COVE

Hoop Pole Cove is a noticeable indentation in the coast line immediately south of Halibut Point. The arc of the cove is about 1/2 mile in length extending from Halibut Point to Andrews Point. Depths in the cove reach 18 feet.

14 ANDREWS POINT

Andrews Point is formed by an east-west directed shore meeting a north-south directed shore, creating an almost 90 degree angle. The bottom slopes away from the coast, attaining a depth of 60 feet about 1/4 mile from shore.

15 OCEAN BLUFF

Ocean Bluff extends from Andrews Point south to Angle Point, paralleling Point-de-Chene Avenue. The coast is very rugged; depths to 18 feet are reached at a distance of 100 yards from shore.

16 ANGLE POINT

Angle Point is identifiable by a deep cut in the rocky coast just south of Ocean Bluff. The water action in the cut is quite spectacular at times. Depths range to 30 feet about 150 yards from shore.

17 THE LEDGES

The Ledges (a terraced shore between Angle Point and Cathedral Rocks) has depths from 30 feet to 60 feet 1/8 mile from shore.

18 CATHEDRAL ROCKS

Almost 3/4 mile long, Cathedral Rocks is an expanse of smooth, cobbled, bouldered, terraced, and rugged coast, slightly indented, facing due east. The bottom profile closely follows that of the sloping shore, continuing the angle of descent to the ocean floor at a depth of over 70-feet 1/4 mile from the coast. Cathedral Rocks is one of Cape Ann's best shore dives, having moderate shore line parking and spectacular underwater scenery. The climb is memorable.

19 FISHERMAN'S CANYON

Fisherman's Canyon is a deep bowled feature of the underwater terrain approximately 50 yards from shore just south of Cathedral Rocks and north of the jumbled rock "wharf" which forms the north buttress of Pigeon Cove Harbor.

20 PARK-AND-WHARF

Park-and-Wharf is the odd name associated with the granite "wharf" which forms the north buttress of Pigeon Cove Harbor. The underwater profile closely follows the angle of the shore, descending to a depth of 70-plus feet about 1/4 mile from the coast.

21 PIGEON ROCK

Pigeon Rock is marked by a U.S. Coast Guard maintained "aid-to-navigation" unlighted nun buoy (red...#2) at the east end side of the entrance to Pigeon Cove Harbor...just off the end of the granite "wharf" peninsula on the south shore of Cathedral Rocks. The configuration of the peninsula continues underwater and extends east for 1/8 mile, providing a very dramatic bottom profile with depths to 30 and 40 feet.

22 PIGEON COVE SHORES

Map

Due south of the entrance to Pigeon Cove Harbor, Pigeon Cove Shores presents a granite buttress to the sea, with depths underwater reaching to 30 and 40 feet at a distance offshore of less than 100 yards. The rocky bottom of Pigeon Cove Shores provides excellent lobstering and crabbing.

23 MITCHELL ROCK

Mitchell Rock is at the north end of an underwater plateau about 1/4 mile east of Pigeon Cove Shores and 1/4 mile north of the U.S. Coast Guard maintained "aid-to-navigation" fixed day beacon (red...#2) on Dodge Rock. At low tide the depth of water over Mitchell Rock is about 4 feet. Depths around Mitchell Rock range from 20 feet on the inshore side to 40 feet on the ocean side. Lobstering is excellent in the vicinity of Mitchell Rock (as is crabbing).

24 BARTLETT ROCK

Bartlett Rock is 1/4 mile due east offshore from Pigeon Cove Shores. Bartlett Rock is the central feature of the rocky underwater plateau whose northern limit is defined by Mitchell Rock and whose southern limit is defined by the Dodge Rock fixed day beacon (red...#2). Water depths over Bartlett Rock are less than 6 feet. Bartlett Rock is on the edge of the submerged plateau and boasts an ocean-side drop-off to 40 feet. Lobstering at Bartlett Rock is excellent.

25 DODGE ROCK

Dodge Rock is marked by a U.S. Coast Guard maintained "aid-to-navigation" fixed day beacon (red...#2). About 200 yards northeast of the outer tip of Granite Pier, Dodge Rock is awash from time-to-time. Depths in the vicinity of the rock vary, dropping to 40 and 50 feet a short distance to the east.

26 GRANITE PIER

Granite Pier is a manmade rocky peninsula forming the east boundary of Gull Cove. Its oceanside coast line provides very interesting diving (and good lobstering) with relatively shallow depths of 20 to 30 feet occurring less than 100 yards off shore.

27 SANDY BAY LEDGE

Sandy Bay Ledge is an underwater and above-water feature just outside Gull Cove. The above-water island is about 50 yards long. Sandy Bay Ledge has adjacent waters which range in depth to less than 10 feet on its inshore side to 30 feet on its offshore side.

28 ROWE POINT

Rowe Point is a rocky buttress facing in an easterly direction and having water depths along its 1/8 mile shore of only 10 to 20 feet.

29 BACK BEACH

Back Beach is a little over 1/4 mile long boulder strewn beach with granite flanking peninsulas at both ends. Back Beach presents a uniform sloping bottom extending out 1/4 mile, with depths of 15 to 20 feet. Back Beach is a popular scuba training site.

30 SANDY BAY BREAKWATER

The Sandy Bay Breakwater is a large manmade structure which stands offshore at a distance of 1 to 2 miles. The breakwater is angled and its length is over 1-1/2 miles. A 300 yard long portion in the center protrudes above the surface at all times and is readily recognizable when viewed from shore. The extent of the structure as viewed from shore runs east and south starting with a submerged portion whose extreme end is marked by a U.S. Coast Guard maintained "aid-to-navigation" quick-flashing gong buoy (green...#3). The above-water section marks the change in direction which the breakwater makes from a generally east-west direction to a generally north-south direction. Being mostly submerged for a major part of this leg, the other end is marked by a U.S. Coast Guard maintained "aid-to-navigation" bell buoy (red...#2) at Avery Ledge. The Sandy Bay Breakwater sits in 80 feet of water at its northwest end and 40 to 50 feet of water at its southeast end. The submerged portions of the structure are only a few feet below sea level with some stretches exposed at very low tides. In cross section the breakwater resembles a pyramid, being of uniformly assembled blocks at the top and giving way to a wide-based tumble of huge granite boulders extending to the sea floor. The inshore sea floor is silt covered while the offshore sea floor is gravel covered.

31 THE FLAT GROUND

The Flat Ground is a plateau 1/2 mile long (north-south direction) and 1/4 mile wide (east-west direction). It begins 1/4 mile east of the south end of the exposed portion of the Sandy Bay Breakwater...this end of the Flat Ground is marked by a U.S. Coast Guard maintained "aid-to-navigation" nun buoy (red...#2). The opposite end of the plateau is marked by a bell buoy (green...#1). Water over the Flat Ground is between 10 and 20 feet deep with the edges of the plateau dropping to 100 feet on the offshore sides and 50 to 60 feet on the inshore sides.

32 THE HAIGHT

The Haight is an almost totally submerged shipwreck (at low tide parts of the wreck are awash). The wreckage litters the southern edge of the Flat Ground. The site must be approached with caution.

33 THE LITTLE SALVAGES

The Little Salvages are almost 3/4 mile east of the U.S. Coast Guard maintained "aid-to-navigation" bell buoy (red...#2) on Avery Ledge. At low tide the Little Salvages have very little water over them, with a 1/4-mile long rocky outcropping being visible. Water depths all around this dive site range from 15 to 20 feet. The Little Salvages boasts the remains...wreckage, actually...of several ships including the recent U.S.S. Grouse (1963)

34 THE DRY SALVAGES

The Dry Salvages stand on the same submerged mesa as the Little Salvages. A little over one mile east of Avery Ledge, the Dry Salvages is the top of a granite hill the major portion of which is about 4 to 6 feet below sea level. Around the perimeter of this dive site the water drops to 30 to 60 feet deep. The southern end boasts spectacular canyons and crevices. The southern end is also the final resting place of the trawler "Racketeer" (1994).

35 THE HEADLANDS

The Headlands face generally northeast and represent the conspicuous division between Rockport Harbor and Old Garden Beach to the southeast. The underwater terrain is relatively shallow, dropping to about 20 feet at a distance of 150 yards offshore.

36 GULLY POINT

Gully Point separates Old Garden Beach from Gully Point Cove. Gully Point is a buttress which drops quite dramatically, its rocky profile descending to a depth of 30 feet just a short distance from shore.

37 GULLY POINT COVE

Gully Point Cove is a minor indentation in the coast line between Gully Point (flanking to the west) and Gap Head (flanking to the east). The cove faces north and boasts depths down to 25 feet at its opening.

38 GAP HEAD

Gap Head is a very prominent peninsula jutting from the mainland almost 1/4 mile in a northeasterly direction into Sandy Bay. Depths around Gap Head vary from 25 to 30 feet just a short distance from the northeast point. The peninsula provides protected anchorage, and the rocky bottom boasts excellent lobstering.

39 GAP COVE

Map

Gap Cove is a well protected dive site, with Straitsmouth Island directly offshore and flanking points of land on each end. Depths within the cove are shallow being less than 10 feet throughout.

40 STRAITSMOUTH ISLAND

Straitsmouth Island stands off from Cape Ann's east coast at a distance of only 200 yards. The gap between the island and the mainland has frequent water craft traffic. The island is 3/8 mile long and 1/4 mile wide and boasts a lighthouse at its northeast point. The water depths around Straitsmouth Island are uniformly 15 to 20 feet. The rocky bottom around the island provides excellent lobstering.

41 WHALE COVE

Map

Whale Cove is a large indentation (1/2 mile long) in the coast south of Straitsmouth Island. At low tide depths offshore are less than 15 feet.

42 FLAT POINT

Flat point separates Whale Cove from Paradise Cliffs and challenges Emerson Point (to the south) as the most easterly point on Cape Ann. Flat Point is a sloping expanse of rock which continues underwater, reaching depths of 20 to 30 feet about 100 yards from shore.

43 PARADISE CLIFFS

Paradise Cliffs is a northeast extension of the west shore of Loblolly Cove. For a distance of 1/4 mile, Paradise Cliffs boasts reasonably shallow water (18 feet) as far offshore as 100 yards.

44 LOBLOLLY COVE

Map

Loblolly Cove is a deep indentation in the shoreline approximately 1/4 mile across at its opening. A small rock island, exposed at low tide, is in the center of the cove. Loblolly Cove is relatively shallow with depths not exceeding 10 to 15 feet throughout.

45 THE WRECK OF THE CHELSEA

The Chelsea was a coastal oil tanker which sank in the late 1950s. The shipwreck is noted on several National Ocean Survey (NOS) charts which show the Cape Ann area. Exact location of the wreck will require reference to one or more of the aforementioned charts. The Chelsea sits on a rocky plateau in 40 to 50 feet of water approximately 1/2 mile NNE of the northeast tip of Thacher Island. The wreck is somewhat compressed and considerably broken up.

46 THACHER ISLAND

Thacher Island is about 3/4 mile east of Emerson Point. About 1/2 mile long and 1/4 mile wide, Thacher Island boasts two lighthouses. The northern lighthouse is not lit. The water around the island is about 12 feet deep at a distance of 50 yards from shore. The northwest area is very shallow while the ocean side is more abrupt in its profile.

47 LONDONER

Londoner, a large and almost awash rocky plateau, is marked by a U.S. Coast Guard maintained "aid-to-navigation" fixed day beacon. The Londoner plateau is about the size of Thacher Island and is about 1/2 mile east of Thacher Island. Water in the vicinity of Londoner is 12 to 18 feet deep for a distance of 1/4 mile away.

48 LOBLOLLY POINT

Loblolly Point is a short stretch of coast (about 200 yards long), slightly indented, on the ocean facing portion of the peninsula which forms the southeast flank of Loblolly Cove. Depths seldom exceed 10 feet up to 50 yards from shore. The rocky bottom offers very good lobstering.

49 OAK ROCK

Oak Rock is an almost awash ledge located 1/2 mile east of Loblolly Point. About 200 yards long and extending in a northwest-to-southeast direction, the underwater hill has its southeast end marked by a U. S. Coast Guard maintained "aid-to-navigation" nun buoy (red...#2). The depth of the water over Oak Rock is less than 6 feet. Just a short distance off the northeast side of the rock the water drops to a depth of 30 to 40 feet. On the opposite (southwest) side the water is shallow, being about 12 to 18 feet deep. There is considerable boat traffic passing Oak Rock...small dive vessels will experience a bouncy anchorage as a result.

50 EMERSON POINT SHORES

Emerson Point Shores is a broad peninsula and is the eastern most limit of the Cape Ann land mass. Bounded by Loblolly Cove to the north and Lands End to the south, Emerson Point Shores is just under 1/2 mile long with water depths ranging from awash rocks to 18 feet at a distance of 100 yards from shore.

51 LANDS END

Lands End is the rocky eastern boundary of Pebbly Beach. Extending west from Emerson Point's south reaches, Lands End boasts excellent diving with water depths of 12 to 18 feet up to 150 yards offshore.

52 COGSWELL FARM LANDING

Cogswell Farm Landing is a short stretch of coast (among the rocks) just east of Pebbly Beach,. Water depths are modest with 12 to 18 feet being experienced at a distance of 300 yards offshore.

53 MILK ISLAND

At low tide Milk Island stands off from Lands End 1/2 mile to the southeast. Triangular in shape, Milk Island measures about 1/4 mile on each of its three sides. Depths all around the island's rocky coast are relatively shallow with 12 to 18 feet being experienced in some cases up to a 1/4 mile away. Between the island and the mainland the water is less than 12 feet deep.

54 PEBBLY BEACH

Pebbly Beach is a 1/2 mile portion of the coast between Cogswell Farm Landing and Cape Hedge. Shallow, Pebbly Beach offers diving depths to 20 feet about 1/4 mile from shore. Pebbly Beach is a popular site for student open water dives.

55 CAPE HEDGE (Eagle Rocks)

Cape Hedge is a minor peninsula separating Cape Hedge Beach from Long Beach. With a rocky coast less than 300 yards long, Cape Hedge offers shallow diving on its east and south sides with depths immediately offshore of 6 to 12 feet. The ocean bottom around Cape Hedge is gravel covered and consequently the water tends to be clear.

56 BRIER NECK

Brier Neck is a prominent rock feature which forms a boundary between Long Beach to the northeast and Good Harbor Beach to the southwest. Brier Neck's coast is 1/4 mile long, and affords diving depths of 18 to 30 feet 150 yards off its southeast portion.

57 SALT ISLAND

Salt Island comes ashore at each low tide. A large rock, 300 yards long and 100 yards wide, Salt Island is 1/4 mile from the coast and boasts shallow-to-no-water (sand) on its mainland side, and steep rocky drops to 20 feet off its ocean facing side. Salt Island is an excellent dive site for beginner boat diving scubas, and a very popular lobstering and crabbing spot.

58 SALT ISLAND LEDGE

Salt Island Ledge is about 1/4 mile east of Salt Island. A sometimes exposed rock, Salt Island Ledge rises from the ocean floor (30-plus feet deep) as a granite mound about 250 yards in diameter. On days when there are swells the ledge should be approached cautiously.

59 BASS ROCKS

Bass Rocks is a very prominent land feature which serves to separate Good Harbor Beach from the 1-1/2 mile long rock expanse of the East Gloucester east coast. The diveable shore of Bass Rocks is a 300 yards long stretch facing east and south with depths to 6 to 12 feet just off shore.

60 ATLANTIC ROAD SHORES

Atlantic Road Shores is the east coast of East Gloucester, south of Bass Rocks and north of the intersection of the coast road (Atlantic Road) with Grapevine Road. This 1-1/2 mile long rocky shore is a spectacular feature of Cape Ann. The underwater profile is quite uniform with depths to 10 to 20 feet 150 yards from shore. It would take many dives to cover this longshore site. Lobstering along Atlantic Road Shores is excellent.

61 BEMO LEDGE

The dive site described is about mile northeast of Bemo Ledge. Bemo Ledge provides the northeast protective flank of Brace Cove and is an occasionally awash 1/4 mile long outcropping of rock. The Bemo Ledge dive site has offshore depths to 12 feet less than 100 yards out, with a gravel-covered bottom which tends to make the water there quite clear.

62 BRACE COVE

Brace Cove is a well protected inlet flanked by Bemo Ledge to the northeast and Brace Rock to the southwest. At low tide the mouth of the cove is about 150 yards wide. Depths at the mouth range from 18 to 24 feet with 6 to 12 feet being the average inside the cove.

63 BRACE ROCK

Brace Rock flanks Brace Cove and boasts excellent ocean-side diving and cove-side diving. Brace Rock is roughly circular, being about 50 to 70 yards in diameter at the waterline. Depths on the ocean side of the rock are moderate, extending down 12 to 18 feet at a distance of 100 yards offshore.

64 EASTERN POINT SHORES

Eastern Point Shores extends for one mile from Brace Rock to the Eastern Point Lighthouse. Facing southeast, it forms one side of the Eastern Point peninsula. The underwater profile is fairly uniform throughout the length of Eastern Point Shores being rocky and sloping to 30 feet deep about 100 yards from shore. In the vicinity of the lighthouse a ledge extends seaward to the southwest with depths to only 12 to 18 feet at a distance of 1/4 mile.

65 THE DOG BAR BREAKWATER

The Dog Bar Breakwater extends for a distance of almost 1/2 mile west-northwest from the Eastern Point Lighthouse, closing off a portion of the entrance to Gloucester Harbor. At a distance of 200 feet offshore from the seaward side, for the full length of the breakwater, the depth varies from 12 feet (at the lighthouse end) to 18 feet (at the outer most tip). The Dog Bar Breakwater is a popular fishing site...scuba divers are advised to be cautious.

66 NORMANS WOE

Normans Woe is a one-mile stretch of mainland coastline which includes the promontory point called Normans Woe, the off-shore island called Normans Woe Rock, Normans Woe Cove, and Mussel Point. This portion of the coast offers shallow rocky diving and excellent lobstering.

67 MAGNOLIA POINT

Magnolia Point is about one mile down the coast from Normans Woe Rock. It's a stub-out piece of coast line, 1/4 mile long, whose rock edge descends to depths of 12 to 18 feet 100 yards from shore. Magnolia Point provides very fine lobstering and crabbing.

68 KETTLE ISLAND

Kettle Island is about 1-1/2 miles down the coast from Normans Woe Rock. The island forms a protective barrier at the entrance to Magnolia Harbor. The south coast of Kettle Island offers a spectacular underwater drop-off with depths of 60 feet being reached very close to the island. Lobstering all around Kettle Island is excellent.

69 SADDLE ROCK

Saddle Rock is immediate to Goldsmith Point and is about two miles down the coast from Normans Woe Rock. At low tide the reason for the rock's name is clear...it's shaped like a saddle. At high tide the rock is just awash. Depths around Saddle Rock vary from stand-up shallows to 20 feet deep, with numerous small caves and overhangs all about its submerged face. West of the rock the bottom slopes up gently along the submerged wall of Goldsmith Point for a distance of 1/4 mile, offering excellent easy diving.

70 EGG ROCK-Northeast

Egg Rock is about 2-1/2 miles down the coast from Normans Woe Rock. Egg Rock's northeast face is a steep cliff, slightly indented, with a submerged shelf at its base. The shelf (an average of about 15 feet below the surface) falls away to the ocean floor which is 40 to 50 feet below the surface. A unique anchor chain and other evidence marks the place of an old wreck. Generally, on a day with a light chop, at least one side of Egg Rock is diveable.

71 EGG ROCK-Southwest (site of "Chris' Cave")

Egg Rock's southwest face boasts a spectacular sloping shelf at an average depth of 15 feet. The shelf is fairly long, with crevices and gullies leading northwest, and a sheer drop-off to a depth of 45 feet at its southwest end. When the tide's right, one can swim up from below and enter a cave-like overhang that's home to several sandpipers.

72 THE U. S. FRIGATE NEW HAMPSHIRE

The wreckage of the U.S. Frigate New Hampshire lies in water 20 to 25 deep immediately off the southwest coast of Graves Island in Manchester. The site is about 2-1/2 miles down the coast from Normans Woe Rock and is the first registered underwater National Historic Site in the United States of America. The ship's fastenings (spikes, nails, sheathing, and reinforcing rods) are made of copper and copper alloys, and were supplied by Paul Revere's foundry. These fastenings can still be retrieved by diligent divers who scour the remains of the wreckage and the ocean floor around the remains. The wreckage of the U.S. Frigate New Hampshire is not off limits to scuba divers. Neither is the taking of artifacts prohibited.

73 BOOHOO LEDGE

Boohoo Ledge, at a distance of 2-1/2 miles southwest of Normans Woe Rock, is a twin peaked granite mount which is nearly awash at very low tide. Boohoo Ledge is 200 yards long and is oriented in a north-south direction. Depths around the ledge reach 60 feet.

74 PADDOCK ROCK

Paddock Rock is about 2-1/2 miles southwest of Normans Woe Rock. Paddock Rock is less than 100 yards across. At mean low water the top of the rock is 13 feet beneath the surface. Depths all around the rock range to 60 feet. Paddock Rock boasts a spectacular canyon on its west side which leads to the ocean floor.
