Rafes Chasm

A scenic walk through the oakwood leads you to a captivating dive site where a series of granite ledges descend into the beautiful sea. The entry/exit point is conveniently situated near the path, allowing for easy access. For those diving from the west side, a confident giant stride entry is recommended. However, it is important to note that exit can be challenging at times due to surge conditions.

Divers at this location can expect to encounter an abundance of marine life. The area is known for attracting Striped Bass, Halibut, and Cunner schools. As you explore the underwater landscape, you'll find the rocks lined with vibrant mussels, while curious lobsters roam the depths. Don't forget to keep an eye out for sculpin and northern puffers, adding an element of excitement to your dive.

With a visibility of 4 meters and a maximum depth of 11 meters, this dive site is suitable for divers of all levels, including beginners. Located in the United States, specifically within close proximity to Strawberry Cove in Magnolia, Gloucester, Essex County, Massachusetts, this underwater gem is waiting to be explored.
