Default Navigation Help--NJ

Hereford Inlet, Wildwood New Jersey

How do you enter this unmarked inlet (maptech)?? Do I need to check the tide charts? I'll be coming from the North to pick up a passenger in Wildwood and then heading to Cape May, I'd rather not go to the Cape may inlet and back-track.
Advice, suggestions, pics of the inlet etc......

Thanks

Check the charts from Atlantic City south bound on the inside ICW. Be careful down there alot of shoaling. I would not try an unmarked inlet.

I went against my better judgement. I was in a rush. Never again. Last year someone from this board asked advice on Wildwood and a local insisted you could get through with no problem , ya right. This is why you cant listen to people that dont run the Ocean and negotiate different inlets on a regular basis.
Coming in I idled in with the drive up and just let the tide bring me in. I got lucky. I new it was bad when all I saw were the Jet skis and other boats turning around (coming from the inside.)

Leaving Wilwood in the evening is where I ran into problems.
I'll post a few pics......

That inlet will have markers if it is passable. Due to shoaling they may close the inlet from time to time. You can call the Coast Guard in wildwood to find out if it is passable

It's possible because I did it on the way in (lucky) but it was impossible last night on the way home. No markers.
