Sandy Cove

Terrance Bay, Nova Scotia
Certification Level:  Open Water/Great training site

Rightfully named Sandy Cove there is a great deal of sand.  With a very gentle sandy slop that continues underwater an eventually giving way to gravel and small cobble with granite boulders and bedrock ridges cloaked in rich seaweeds. Outside the cove straight out is a sand plain running to 30ft.


There's lots of options for this dive site; you can stay in the cove an swim around or head to the right of the cove following easy navigation of boulders on the right, sand on the left, you can easily get 40ft this way.
