Have fun with the solo, it’s a passion that I enjoy very much.

Hi keep me in the loop when you go diving. I’m kind of in the same situation like you. Have some good friends in Dutch if you are interested.

Hi. My name is John. I’m a NAUI DM. I’m trying to be in the water as often as possible. I live round the jersey shore exit 90. I’m down for boat diving or inland shallow. What type of diving are you trying to do?

Hi there. I’m trying to tweak my gear (which I all have to repurchase because it was destroyed) and log enough dives to be ready for cave and solo certifications next year. I also want to do NJ wreck diving because it’s a good training ground with the low vis and high currents. I’m up near the GWB but was at exit 83 today for catamaran sailing so I don’t mind the driving. Send me an email and let’s see if we can set something up.

Getting my solo cert was the best thing ive done in my scuba education so far. Its opened my eyes to a different and safer side of diving. You definitely carry more gear. Redundancy and back ups for everything especially gas supply. I carry a 30 cf bailout bottle on every dive. Solo divers make excellent buddies! Good luck on your solo endeavors!

Thank you!! I’m very excited about it and I think it will be important for cave diving. In the mean time.. trying to get as much dives in as I can this summer and make sure all my gear is tweaked just right.

Good morning Margo, If you want to try some Jersey shore diving watch the forum, there’s usually a group diving Shark River in Belmar. During the summer and early fall a 3 mil is enough. These are usually evening dives because of boat traffic and that’s also the best time to find seahorses. If you don’t have a light speak up because there are usually extras.

cool thank you so much for the info! Yes I would love to do some Jersey shore diving, and evening sounds interesting! I will keep an eye on the forum, if you happen to hear of a group dive, do let me know!
