Flat/Sheltered Water, Open Water/Ocean, Surf
There was plenty of boater/marine vessel traffic in & around the Manasquan River, Inlet, and Atlantic Ocean. The use of a handheld marine VHF radio, will greatly help in order to be kept informed of all important communications.
A kayak of longer length, as well as one equipped with a spray skirt, is highly recommended. The usage of a PFD, is just plain old commonsense okay?
The tidal waters of the Manasquan River, Inlet, and the Atlantic Ocean can be challenging and unpredictable. Having properly amassed the right kayaking skills, can greatly reduce any potentially dangerous conditions, and or situations that might possibly arise, when making such a trip such as this.
