Evaluation

*Average:    2.85
This is a wonderful site, provided you are ready to enter the water precisely at high slack tide. During the late summer and early fall, divers can find juvenile tropicals that have ridden the Gulf Stream up the East Coast and found shelter in shallow water before gaining size and strength to head back south. Boat traffic sometimes can be a concern, so a dive flag on a float is an absolute must. Although the dive is shallow -- about 35 feet max. -- bottom time is limited to the slack tide. As soon as the tide starts moving out, it is time to exit the water or you may find yourself swept out the Manesquan Inlet to the Atlantic Ocean, a little less than a mile downstream.
