charliec:
So I understand there're WS at pigeon lighthouse... Yet I was wondering if it's safe to spearfish close to the shore?

Give it a try and let us know what you see.

It's a great place to dive but supper sharky , there have been a few hits there and at least one death . I've had the hunted feeling almost everytime I've dove there .  I told t maas that I dive there and he said I was nuts . If you try it don't go alone and make sure you tell somone where you are and when to expect you to check in when you are safely out

Thanks for the feed back!
Question: Even at 10-20 feet one risks shark encounter? I noticed there're lot of structures very close to the shore... within 100 feet of the coastline.

Unfortunately, most any depth that we can dive in, sharks can easily navigate in as well. So yes, you could potentially encounter one in 10-20 feet of water.
