Just checked with one of my captain
friends who runs tug/barges and workboats in/out of Barnegat all the time....
Seems like the bar on the South side is a little worse and the North continues to be the favored approach...but he said the depth was fine with normal "standing wave/chop conditions" most of the time.
At Barnegat it's usually not the inlet you have to worry about...inside past the light is usually where the sand shifts a lot...the creeks back to the mainland have been reported much shallower and not marked correctly after Sandy...but just to overnight shouldn't be too bad....just follow the marks in to a dock
or the deep anchorage just inside to the west along what the charts
call "the dike".
