Bush Terminal is located in a beautiful waterfront park in Brooklyn. Diving takes place in the two tidal pools, which during high tide become one large tidal pool. Along the side of these pools are the wetlands and a very rocky shoreline.
Bush Terminal serves as our main training ground. We come to this dive site more than any other open water site and we have become accustumed to diving this site. The visibility is better than most dive sites in New York City because the oyster cages do extremely well here. It’s a great site to dive at.
Creatures seen in Bush Terminal so far are: blue claw crabs, hermit crabs, spider crabs, mud crabs, flounders, green crabs, rock crabs, oysters, shrimp, eels, striped bass, clams, scallops, mussels, and 1 beautiful giant swan.
