Some of the published dive guides state that divers have the right to enter ANYWHERE. This is not really true. Yo can enter anywhere in on PUBLIC land like along the Boulevard down town and along the "tourist road" Sites in developed area like Andrea 1 and 2 are limited to day light hours essentially 7-7. Entries in front of resorts are private and can involve a fee if you use facilities or be closed completely if resort is busy. South of town,the area is all owned by Cargill Salt and subject to closure if abuse (leaving trash, driving in the sand) continues. Salt Pier ,while reopened, is being so trashed by divers that they are thinking of closing it off. Courteous divers get more dives
