Snorkeling and Scuba Diving at Twin Lights

For a shallow dive, with a possibility of finding some old Coast Guard artifacts, Twin Lights can make for an enjoyable morning. About 5 miles South of Portland on Route 1, hang a left at Oak Hill onto 114 (Gorham Rd). Go for 3 miles merging onto Rt.207 (Black Point Road), then make a left onto 77 (Spunwink Rd.) In about 3.5 miles, bear right onto Bowery Beach Rd. In 2.3 miles, turn right onto East Point Road. Continue down the road, bearing left for 1.7 miles (do not go into the Park); the road will dead end at the dive site.

There is a limited amount of visitor parking here, with no facilities. It's a beautiful cove, with the best diving off to the right. During the right conditions, entry is very easy. It is an easy walk down to the beach and into the water. Just a few rocks and seaweed to watch out for. Curve left here to get to the light houses; do not go into the park.

We went here for an afternoon of free diving, and had lots of fun. I saw crab, lobster, stripper, starfish, and many other types of sea life. The restaurant is confidently located right next to the dive site too. Just put lobster shack into your gps and it will take you here.

This is a great location. My son and I enjoyed the dive. The entry was very easy because the parking lot is very close. The bottom was rocky and filled with plant and aquatic life. Good place to take the family. There's food and facilities near by.

This place is actually known as "Two Lights" not twin lights. The Two Lights restaurant serves the best Lobster Stew in Maine. After a dive, have a bowl and see why Mainers stay for the winter!

This was an easy, pleasant dive. I have limited knowledge of New England diving, but it would be considered an average dive as far as sea life is concerned when compared to my normal Pacific Northwest diving. We had a good variety of algae, plant oriented divers would love it. A lot of lobsters (by my standards) as well a good variety of fish. I may have caught it on a bad day, but the visibility was pretty poor. Being mid-summer, I suspect an algae bloom. There are probably times when this is hazardous, but I felt perfectly comfortable as a newcomer.
