I am open a shore dive tonight. High tide is around 7:30, get in at 7 depending on site.
Shark River inlet is legal after 5:30, Manasquan Inlet, Barnegate Inlet, RR Bridge, or Maclearie Park.

All my fishing and diving freinds where tied up today. I think it would have been good vis and warm. Would have been a nice day to get the boat out.
How was your class?

Very interesting and a lot harder than I thought. Used a Hollis Sidemount SMS 75 and two steel 72’s. The whole concept is very cool and rather straight forward with a good instructor. With the tanks full it was easy to keep in trim and swap regs.
But once the 72’s got floaty - they started to get away from me. A lot harder to control buoyancy when you have your mask pulled off and a tank un-clipped. Glad I am taking the class - opens it up to new direction as opposed to BM doubles.
Anyway tomorrows weather is supposed to rain and maybe lighting so I hope we can squeeze the class in... otherwise we need a rain date.

That would be surface temp... lol

Go down 50 feet and it is about 48 degrees... But it is warming up - so that is the good news.
