I am in Paoli, PA near Philly. Need a buddy to get into NJ wreck dives with me. I am only diving singles, and need someone on par with that. If your into doing that type of diving hit me up.

Are you going out on a charter or do you own your own boat? I only dive singles, I have all my own gear (minus tank, weights, and a cold water suit) but if you were doing a charter, I’d only need to cold suit (I’d assume I could rent the tanks and weights). Do you typically dive dry or do you wear a 7 mm suit? Just curious as I’ve been spoiled by only diving warm water locations, but have been looking to do some local diving as I’m not sure the next time I’m going to be able to dive abroad.

I used to dive NJ wrecks in a 7 mil farmer John when I was younger but I guess the waters gotten colder because I would need a drysuite now :)


I gave up on Jersey wrecks because the charters only seem interested in catching dinner now, not exploration. I still do some Jersey beach dives and Shark River inlet can be interesting and done in a 3 mil this time of year :)
