Chris, is Maclearie Park a site you have dove before? It is my understanding that NJ scuba regulations for Shark River Inlet (Maclearie Park is in the back bay area of this inlet) is that no diving is permitted from May 1st to Oct 1st during the hours of 8:30am to 5:30 pm. With that in mind, you also need to dive during the slack tide. You could theoretically do a morning dive (about 5:30 am and 5:45 pm. With the site varying from 6ft to about 12ft, I don’t think I would try an afternoon dive with low tide being around noon. Water depths I described were peak tide depths. Maybe I will come for the evening dive on Saturday.
