Comments Cape Ann has great shore diving. Cape Ann Divers was friendly and helpful in getting fills, suggesting locations, pointing out weather/sea issues, and also had a great dive boat operation. The water was cold -- so 7 mm wet suit or drysuit is a must. Be careful of tidal changes on shore dives or stuff left on the beach will wash away. Visablity increases the further from shore. Lots of interesting cold water life, lobsters everywhere.

Plenty of small family operated hotels in the area, and plenty of attractions and shopping for non-divers (within walking distant of the hotels so the divers can take the car)

Rockport is the most scenic place to stay. A great getaway for those who can handle cold water.
