Hi... Mostly vacation diver here looking to get more experience diving locally along Jersey Shore. Have PADI AOW but only a few local dives. Hoping some divers who know local shore/inlet diving well wouldn’t mind me tagging along. Located in Monmouth County.

Well Monmouth county is a good place to be, most of Jerseys best shore dives are there. A lot from here dive Maclearie Park. My favorite was the twin wrecks but it’s access was closed after Sandy and I haven’t seen anything about it reopening since.
Divers Two used to have a beach entry club but I don’t know if it’s still active.

If by Twin Wrecks you mean the Adonis and Rusland "Dual Wrecks" - they were buried under 12 feet of sand last time l looked 1 year ago from the Beach Replenishment project. My guess - it is going to take a few hurricanes or years to uncover that site...

Matt,
Did you ever find someone to dive NJ ?
I try to dive every weekend.
Last weekend the vis was horrible, didn’t even try.

Sort of. I hired a dive master from one of the local shops and dove the inlet on A street. A little pricy but it was a very fun dive. We went at night so there was plenty of life — fluke, eel, starfish, some tropical butterfly fish and so on. Hoping to do Maclearie before it gets too chilly to enjoy.
