Monterey boat dive aboard Beachhopper II

  • February 18, 2013 · 8:00 AM

Hey all! Celebrate President's Day underwater! 2-tank boat dive on Beachhopper. Book your slot by reserving directly on the beachhopper website for the February 18, 2013 cruise. First come, first served - the boat can only take 6 divers so book quickly!

I have never been on this boat but from their website it looks like they will only arrange to have tanks at the boat, and you need to take care of any rental gear you might need. Please RSVP with "paid" when you book your slot so that I know who is coming! Happy to help coordinate carpools as needed.

Board the boat at 8 for an 8:30 departure.
Cost is $70 for the trip. Having 2 air tanks provided by the boat is an additional $20.

    Carpooling? I live downtown/soma but can take the BART or Muni to meet somewhere.

    Are there weights on the boat or do I need to rent them elsewhere? There was no option to rent on the reservation form, but I did add a note.

      There are no weights on the boat. You have to rent them

      Most of the dive shops down there open at 7am if you need to pick up weights on the way in.

    Gear question. I have a tank that needs filling. Should I bring it or just rent from there?

    I will also need to rent weights.

      I second Kevin's suggestion. If you fill 1 tank and rent 1 tank, that comes out to be about $17. If you rent 2 tanks, it is $20 and you don't have to haul around that 1 tank or go to get it filled.

      Thanks for the tips. I'll add tanks and weights to my reservation

    Paid. Just took the last slot on the boat, so it looks like a full charter. Not sure where we are going, I think the captain decides that day. Am pretty new to diving, but will have done my advanced open water cert by Monday.

      Great Allen! Yes, they decide that day based on conditions. The last time I went out on one of the Monterey boats we went down to Carmel which was nice.

      Everything depends on the conditions that morning, so if it looks favorable they almost always try to run down to Carmel; sometimes the winds are just too stiff around the point and you're forced to dive inside the Bay, but it's still nice.

    Arg. Love the BH, but I have other engagements that day. Be sure to have one of MaryJo's cookies for me....

      Sorry for the short notice, but it was an impromptu idea that popped up at the happy hour this week so I jumped on it!
