"It wasn't balmy, but if you're getting out in 50-degree weather, it's not too bad," he said.
Meanwhile, the rescheduled Polar Bear Plunge at Sandy Point State Park near Annapolis will take place on March 8.
The original plunge on Jan. 25 had to be called off due to cold weather and dangerous water conditions. Winds gusted to 35 mph and 3- to 4-foot waves in the Chesapeake Bay left snow and ice on the beach that day.
Gates will open at 8 a.m. on March 8, with a "pee wee" and family plunge at 11 a.m. and open plunges at noon, 1 p.m. and 2 p.m. Prospective plungers who haven't yet signed up can register in advance or on the day of the plunge.
Before the main plunge day, participants in the "cool schools" program will do their plunging on March 5.
