    Langs Ski & Scuba on N. Olden Ave. in Trenton. Tuna Seasure runs all winter out of Brielle. You may die when you get out of the water in a semi-dry.:no:

    I am totally new to diving and would not consider diving in Jersey at that time of year. If you are looking to get out on a boat.... one thing that I can tell you is to have a few backup dates... the Atlantic ocean at that time of year tends to be a bit unpredictable, as a boater and fishermen I do know about sea conditions. I was going to suggest Langs Ski @ Scuba as well.... I worked there years ago in the ski dept.

    I will second the The Scuba Connection in Hillsborough. They are a full service shop with a huge inventory from recreational to techinical dive gear. Certainly worth the drive up 206 from Trenton. As for boats this winter Gypsy Blood, Tuna Siezure, and Sea Lion are a few I know that are running. Diving January in a semidry is going to be pretty cold. I would reccomend a dry suit if you really want to partake in year round diving in NJ. The Scuba Connection actually rents dry suits and has a indoor heated pool on premise to do the first part of your training in. They can also arrange for check out dives this winter.

    I think the Indy II's still running also. I know we're doing a charter next week if the weather holds up.

    Next weeks charter will probably be our last charter of the year. We will then be pulling the boat. I crew on the boat and will see you guys next week :)

    I'll second the Scuba Connection recommendations. Great guys, great instructors and a "candy store" of a dive shop.

    I'm also going to "second" that you check out "The Scuba Connection" in Hillsborough. It is not that far from Trenton. It is a big store, with a full line of gear, instructors that can teach all levels of diving (from open water through instructor), and a pool for you to try it before you buy it. If you can't do the 25 minute drive from Trenton, Lang's is on Olden Avenue by the Ewing border.

    As for diving in January, why would you NOT do it? As long as you have a drysuit, you can dive in NJ all year.

    Hi Wayne, Jeremiah, and Sean!
