Easy entry, mild current and bay-like surface conditions make this a great site for training or for a beginner. Visibility is typically 3 to 6 feet. With a visibility of 4 feet, an enjoyable dive is possible. The bottom is easily disturbed. Missing or jumping slack a little carries away whatever you kick up. Maximum depth is around 15 feet. Marine life includes the usual variety found in NJ, but unusual things can be found. On a night dive a few years back I saw a seahorse. Watch for boats and jet skis controlled by people with varying levels of competence. Surface close to your flag and away from areas subject to marine traffic. Avoid the area near the boat ramp. Near the fishing pier, it may be impossible to avoid snags when fishermen are present. The site offers parking close to the beach entry point. Note: The scuba stairs at this site were taken down in the winter (2010) and have not been repaired. Conditions here would also permit snorkeling.
