High tide around 11, at least two of us are meeting to check out gear for a first dive of the season.
If we are lucky, water temperature could be close to 50 F.
We generally dive about 15-30 minutes after high tide.

No Carl, we are not doing a night dive!

I’m already commited to dinner with family but keep warm. I did see someone in the Harry Wright lake yesterday either checking gear or using a metal detector.

Soon...but Easter even I have to pass on. I was just looking out the window at work, looks beautiful today...and I thought to myself, I wonder if anyone has done any wetsuit diving yet in NJ?

I know it’s different but today round valley was 44 on the surface and 38 30ft down. I was fine but my hands got frozen.

What time is the tide? I would consider next weekend. Also, what temp is the water? I’m pretty resistant to the cold, just curious.

Round Valley opens on 4/1/16 - did sneak in early?
Night dives get such a bad rap.. lol
Fri night at the SR inlet - surface was 55 and at 19 feet it was 43 degrees.

And you guys looking to do the RR bridge or Shark River? How was the visibility on Shark River Carl? Did you do the spot by the apartments or under the bridge?

Nevermind, next week is Beneath the Sea, I am going to go there on Sunday with my wife and friend, I’ll take a rain check for the diving.

Under the bridge - played there for a while - only a few fishermen on the inlet. Maybe 2 foot viz due to the wave action all week - but I wanted to dive so I went knowing it would not be great.

I went on Saturday for PSD training, we have a permit for special use year round. Saturday was playing in surface supplied, everything from MKv’s to Superlites, and my favorite the Russian Hat.

Very cool - I have been diving in a pond waiting for RV to open back up... when the Shore viz drops I like Round Valley - closer and cheaper than Dutch for me and my son.

You using the new dry suit or diving wet?

Dry - have about 10 dives on it now. I like it - just ask me again in the summer heat that will be the test.
