New Jersey Scuba Diving
Manasquan Inlet Artificial Reef
The squiggly purple lines are undersea cables
The Manasquan Inlet Reef site is located 1.7 nautical miles southeast of the inlet, which is just north of Ocean County’s Point Pleasant Beach. When fully developed, it will occupy nearly one square mile of sea floor in water from 67 feet to 74 feet deep. The reef is part of a compromise reached in 2015 that settled fishing gear use and access to artificial reefs between recreational and commercial fishermen and restored federal funding to New Jersey’s artificial reef program.
The reef started out in June 2017 with a large load of concrete
