Rating Added: 4 Fun place to spend time with the family snorkeling the A1 area or in the beach area. Not much to see if diving randomly, but if you know where to go to find the old town, it’s pretty neat. Video of some of our foundation findings: you...

As divers, we rush to take advantage of diving in the Caribbean, South Florida, Great Barrier Reef, Fiji and many other exotic locations. Conditions are optimal to make memories.But the reality is that sometimes it is difficult to break......
Crater Lake NJ

"Scout" and I decided to check out Crater Lake in western NJ today. Crater Lake is at about 1400 foot elevation in the Kittany range, outside of Millbrook Village. It’s part of the national park service. Beyond that, a mystery. This was to be a scouting expedition to see if this would be good site for a larger outing. We met at my office at 8 and loaded my stuff into Scout’s car. We got to Crater Lake at about 9 o’clock or so. It’s a nice place; a large lake, some picnic tables, bear-proof trash...
Shark River Inlet - NJ
Absolute - 8/04/2008 4:27 PM
Last Friday and Saturday nights, I went diving at the Shark River Inlet in Belmar/Avon, NJ. Saturday was a much better dive...there were about 15 fewer divers in the water than there were on Friday! Also, high tide was 35-40 minutes later, so it was truly dark when I entered the water (the darker the better for marine life to come out of hiding). Vis was great for the first two thirds of the dive, but toward the end of the dive after the tide turned, it decreased quite a bit, but still not too b...

I didn`t want to message all of my buddies with this, because some are not from Jersey. I mentioned to a few buddies that I was going to check out a couple local dive clubs, and they asked for a `report`, so here is tis! Okay, so I went to the Divers Anonymous dive club meeting last night. There were about 15 people, mostly older guys (one lady and a few young guys), which is typical. They usually get around 20, and there are 40+ total members. They were very welcoming and everyone seemed pretty...
