Ferry Dock to Lightering Dock

This is variation of diving the docks.  Winter dive only.  This dive requires two vehicles.  Park one vehicle at the lightering dock.  Make sure you leave a pair of boots and eye glasses in this vehicle if you need glasses to drive.  Drive down to the ferry dock in the 2nd vehicle and haul your gear down the dock.  Make sure to do a thorough buddy check.  After you get into the water there is no getting back out at this spot.  Swim down to the Lightering dock and use the 1st vehicle to drive back to the ferry dock.  This dive is best left to experienced divers.  Once in the water you are committed to doing the dive.  Though the dive doesn’t take an hour, always take at least an hours worth of gas with you.
