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.

For more information, or to sign up for one of this week's scheduled dives, contact the shop on (732) 776-7755 or visit us during our regular weekly hours. See the chart below for more information on our upcoming dives.

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.

Saturday, July 7 aboard the VENTURE III

Departing at 8am. Diver cost: $110
Pinta & John K. Shaw
This 200-foot long coastal freighter sank after being rammed and holed by the CITY OF PERTH in 1963 about seven miles off Asbury Park. It is one of New Jersey’s most popular dive sites. While some of us have dived her shortly after she sank seeing her virtually intact, she now lies partly scattered across the bottom making for an excellent multi-level diving experience in less than 90 feet of water.
The JOHN K. SHAW was a wooden schooner involved in what amounts to a hit-and-run at sea. She “made contact” with the iron steamer NEWPORT on a stormy night in 1884. All hands were lost aboard the Shaw. The Shaw is actually two sites, so divers will have a choice of making their second dive on one half or the other.

Dive WWII: GULF TRADE & MAURICE TRACY @ SEA LION

Dive WWII: GULF TRADE & MAURICE TRACY @ SEA LION

Saturday, July 14 aboard the SEA LION

Departing at 7am. Diver cost: $100
Dive WWII: GULF TRADE & MAURICE TRACY
These two wrecks are also inextricably linked by war. They were victims of WWII. The GULF TRADE was torpedoed and the Tracy was sent to the bottom after a collision with another vessel avoiding U-boats.
Both wrecks are about 90 feet deep or less. The Tracy is spread out a bit and worth using a line reel to navigate. The Tracy can also be great for fishing. Bring a speargun.

The MAGUR is a tugboat intentionally sunk as part of New Jersey’s Artificial Reef Program. This is a great dive and good for some penetration. It is intact and upright on the bottom. The wreck is about 70 feet deep.

Sea Girt Wreck & 120 Wreck @ VENTURE 3
Saturday, July 21 aboard the VENTURE III
Departing at 8am. Diver cost: $110
Sea Girt Wreck & 120 Wreck
We are planning to go to the Sea Girt Wreck and the 120 Wreck. They are a mile apart from each other about 9 miles offshore in 85 feet of water. Both have remained unidentified since they were first dived decades ago.

Suspected of being barges that carried general freight, both are known for lobsters and fish, and the Sea Girt has yielded artifacts from time to time and is also good wreck for scallops.

MOHAWK! @ VENTURE 3

Saturday, August 4 aboard the VENTURE III

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.

CRANFORD @ BLUE FATHOMS

Sunday, August 12 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.
