Listed below are some distinctive places to scuba dive on the Jersey Shore.

1. Located in Monmouth County, The Manasquan Jetties are an ideal area for divers since crabs, blackfish, striped bass, and lobster are abundant. The Manasquan Inlet is also good for underwater photography. Additionally, divers will be able to find relics of wrecks from small boats that have run aground over the years.

2. The Deauville Inn docks are located in Strathmere, Cape May County. Named for the restaurant near Corson’s Inlet, the area is known as a great place to recover bottles dating from the mid-19th century to the prohibition era. Many divers have also found jewelry and coins along with an abundance of marine life.

3. Also in Monmouth County, the Western World Shipwreck, or the Spring Lake Wreck, is a British sailing ship from 1853. The ship ran aground while journeying from Liverpool, and the wreckage was not discovered until the early 1960s. Divers can get permission to see the wreck from the Spring Lake chief of police.
