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.

Cadet & Delaware
Saturday 8 AM Departure
10/01/22
2 Tank Dive
The Cadet, identified as the John H. Winstead which sank in 1927, is also at 80 feet. Good for fish and lobsters – and the occasional artifact – it is big; wide and about 240 feet long. The vessel was carrying coal when she sank.
The Delaware is a diggers wreck. Divers have been bringing up artifacts on almost every dive. Burned to the waterline in 1899, the wreck is in just 65 feet of water. Great for sea life, videography and photography.

2 Tank Dive
The Northeast Sailer Wreck is a favorite in this area and a great way to start off the diving season. At 75 feet, it is low lying and good for fish and lobsters. Off the port bow are a couple of anchors and some frames worth exploring. Astute divers will notice she carries cargo of steam engines.

Similar to the Middle, the Rump is a great wooden wreck to explore. Artifacts come up from time to time, and sea life is plentiful. The Rump also sports a V2 steam engine! Very unusual.

The Dykes is a partially intact wreck at her stern. The rest is open and easy to navigate. Her rudder lies just to one side. At 65 feet, she offers great exploration and sea life. She’s long, too – over 300 feet!
A favorite wreck of Divers Two, the DVD (Delaware Valley Divers club) Banana Barge is an artificial reef wreck in just 65 feet of water. It makes for an all-around great wreck to explore. Lots of bottom time, outlying pieces, partially intact, this shallow wreck this it all.

                                                           Brunette & Delaware

Saturday 8 AM Departure

11/05/22

2 Tank Dive

A diggers wreck, the Brunette lies at 75 feet. She sank after a collision with the Santiago de Cuba. A smaller steamer, she is fairly easy to navigate, although her bow can be tricky. A line reel makes easy work of that.

 

The Delaware is also a diggers wreck. Divers have been bringing up artifacts on almost every dive. Burned to the waterline in 1899, the wreck is in just 65 feet of water. Great for sea life, videography and photography.

Mohawk @ venture 3
Nov 5 @ 8:00 am – 9:00 am
Mohawk

Saturday 8 AM Departure

11/12/22

2 Tank Dive

Sunk after a collision with the Talisman in 1935, the Mohawk is a great wreck to explore. An ocean liner nearly 400 feet long and in 75 feet of water, you’ll rarely see the entire wreck in a single dive. She is known as an artifact hunters wreck. China, shipboard items, and cargo have been recovered over the decades. Visibility varies, so line reels are a must-have. Keep one in your pocket or collection bag. Bring a dive light, too.
