MANASQUAN JETTIES

DIRECTIONS: (Manasquan/Pt Pleasant, Monmouth County) Take the Garden State Parkway to Exit 98. Take Rt. 34 South, you will go straight through two traffic circles. After the second traffic circle get on to Rt. 35 South. After crossing the Manasquan River make a left hand "U" turn, then a quick right onto Broadway. Stay on Broadway to the end and turn left onto Ocean Ave.

 

CONDITIONS:

The Manasquan Jetties are excellent not only for underwater photography but for lobster, black fish, crabs and even striped bass. The best dive conditions are at high slack. The site does have several regulations, but the benefits are well worth adhering to them. First, diving is only permitted within 50 feet of the jetties or bulkheads. Second, diving is only permitted east of an imaginary line drawn from Ocean Ave to First Ave (refer to diagram). Since regulations may change it is recommended to contact local municipalities to check on up dates. Divers also should realize that boat traffic through the inlet at this location is heavy and divers are urged, for their own safety, to stay near the rocks. Diver Bill Schmoldt tells us that over the years a few small boats have gone aground on the jetties. The current quickly washes the little wrecks away or rips apart the wreckage and leaves little remaining, but who knows what souvenirs can be found by observant divers.
