Get Out and Dive!

Divers Two frequently arranges dive trips to local dive sites around Belmar and the Shark River Inlet, including dives in the Back Bay and around the inlet itself. Dive times vary depending upon the tide. Contact us directly for particular details on scheduling a dive at one of these locations or to join in on one that has already been planned.

Fosters dives aboard the Venture III, they require an independent back-up system (pony tank and regulator), a sound device, and a dive marker. Advanced Open Water certification is recommended. It is recommended that divers arrive early to secure their gear as well as a parking space!

Wreck tours on our chartered boats are required for all first time NJ divers and/or are available to any one who would like them. They are lead by a member of the Divers Two Staff and are to be booked at least 5 days prior to the charter. Call for pricing.

Granite Wreck & Bonanza @ VENTURE 3

Saturday, August 25 aboard the VENTURE III

Departing at 7am. Diver cost: $120
Granite Wreck & Bonanza
For the heartier diver, we offer a trip to the deep Granite Wreck. This unidentified wreck lies in about 115 feet of water a ways offshore. It carried a cargo of granite stones the size of washing machines and refrigerators and is known for large lobster. This low lying wreckage is easy to navigate in good visibility, but line reels are highly recommended.
Nearby the Granite Wreck is the Bonanza. Unidentified, she too is deep at 115 feet. Good for lobsters, but also bring a line reel for safe return to the upline.

In the mid-1800’s, a storm swept the area sinking a fleet of fishing vessel off Manasquan Inlet. The Ridge Wrecks may be part of this fleet or parts of a single vessel scattered throughout the area. The average depth is about 80 feet. Bring a line reel in case the vis is low.

Coffee Wreck @ BLUE FATHOMS

Sunday, September 2 aboard the BLUE FATHOMS

Departing at 2pm. Diver cost: $60
Coffee Wreck
Also known as the “Southwest Mohawk,” this site consists of of fairly large timbers with bundles of iron pipes and stone ballast blocks scattered around. NJSCUBA.net reports: “The bottom is clean, white, almost Caribbean sand. Visibility tends to be relatively good, and it is very easy to follow around the edges of the wreck or explore over the top without getting lost. Caverns and gaps around the edges of the wreckage provide homes for swarms of Sea Bass, some of them huge, and a few Tautogs.”

BETH DEE BOB @ SEA LION

Saturday, September 8 aboard the SEA LION

Departing at 7am. Diver cost: $110
BETH DEE BOB
The BETH DEE BOB sits upright on the bottom with a slight list to starboard. She is intact. The vessel is much like a bigger, cleaner version of the LANA CAROL The wheelhouse is easily penetrated, although the rest of the interior is more difficult. The aft hold is still full of clam cages, while the hold covers are torn off and lie in the sand off the stern. She lies at a depth of 120 feet.

MOHAWK! @ VENTURE 3

Saturday, September 15 aboard the VENTURE IIII

Departing at 8am. Diver cost: $110
MOHAWK!
The MOHAWK sank after a collision with the TALISMAN in January of 1935. She lies in 75 feet of water and is a large wreck. Artifacts dating from the 1930’s still come up. This is great for photography and video, good for fishing and lobsters, and great for exploring. A line reel would be helpful in low vis conditions.
We plan on spending the day at this site. This will allow anyone that finds something interesting on the wreck an opportunity to spend a couple of dives in order to retrieve it. Since it is such a large wreck, it also allows those unfamiliar with the MOHAWK a chance to get to know it.

TOLTEN!
The TOLTEN is 100 feet deep. She is a victim of a German U-boat attack during WWII. All but one life was lost as a result. The wreckage is broken down in the middle, but the stern and bow offer a bit a relief off the bottom. The TOLTEN is a great wreck to explore.

STOLT DAGALI @ VENTURE 3

Saturday, Sept 28 aboard the VENTURE III

Departing at 7am. Diver cost: $120
STOLT DAGALI
The stern of the Tanker STOLT DAGALI sank after being cut in two by the Isreali Liner SHALOM on Thanksgiving Night, 1964. While local divers were still clamoring to dive the PINTA which sank just over a year before, the STOLT offered divers another opportunity to see a fresh wreck. The wreck is deep at 130 feet, but she comes up to about 70 feet, which makes her accessible to divers of nearly every level of experience. She’s a bit further offshore, so we need to leave the dock a little early.
We plan on spending the day at this site. This will allow those unfamiliar with the Stolt a chance to get to know it, especially her lower sections.

CRANFORD @ BLUE FATHOMS

Sunday, Sept 30 aboard the BLUE FATHOMS

Departing at 2pm. Diver cost: $60
CRANFORD
The CRANFORD is part of New Jersey’s artificial reef program, but almost an unintended one. Originally used as the Ferryboat Restaurant, she suffered damage during a storm and had to be towed out to sea and allowed to settle to the bottom. Due to the fact that she went to pieces shortly thereafter, she looks like a naturally occurring site, like the MOHAWK. She is about 70 feet deep.
