The Adonis and the Rusland are known as the dual wrecks. The Adonis is a wood wreck with a cargo of grinding stones all lined up. The Rusland was a steel steamer that came to rest on top of the Adonis, all that remains are the boilers and prop shaft. Good news/Bad news, this is probably the coolest NJ beach dive BUT it has the longest walk. Beach access is a path just north of 717 Ocean Ave. Drop off your gear already set up, have someone stay with it while you find a parking spot, I use a church a block south on the west side. Slep your gear toward the ocean; a little red wagon would be nice here but there are steps at the end of the path. The good news is there is a wall to sit on and rest if you are wearing the gear. Walk out to the ocean and turn right, climb over the first jetty and walk south halfway to the next. This beach belongs to the church so do not litter, because some divers did we can't shortcut through the church anymore. Swim out lining up the cross and the statue, enjoy!
