Nubble is my favorite site in southern Maine / northern New Hampshire area (from shore). There is always animal life; stripped bass the size of your arm, flounder the size of your head, lots of cunner, scaulpins of all sizes, and crabs/lobsters galore. Sometimes you see rare sightings here; a torpedo ray was has seen/and almost mistakenly touched, schools of jack after a hurricane, Dog Fish too. There are pieces of pottery and glass bottles to be found, and vertical walls to look at too. Overall this is a pretty diverse place to do a fun dive. There is no diving on Sundays!!!! The entry is a bit tricky as it is down some ledge and boulders, and is very slippery, especially at low tide and if the spray has been moving up the rocks. The cove is protected when there is east - south winds; anything north of east and it will get rough. Visibility is subject to typical factors, but this is New England and we don't really need to see when we're diving.

This site is only good for getting wet! The sand gives way to eel grass, then to some kelp (but not much). Visibility usually sucks (<5 ft), and if you get too far out, the river / tide currents can raise hell (but you would have to swim way out there). No worries about boats (unless you get more than 150 yards out). Some tube worms in silt, some lobster (imagine that), and not much else.
