Monterey Breakwater dive - Jan. 26th

Hey all, so here is the plan as it currently stands:

 

~8am: Meet at Breakwater. I'll come up with a landmark in case its crowded and will email everyone directly with my cell number in case we have trouble connecting.

Get tanks and rentals (if needed...I suggest calling ahead to reserve anything you need). I was just going to get one tank and then have it refilled during surface interval.

Buddy up, quick safety talk/check, discuss a dive plan depending on how crowded it is, conditions, etc.

In the water for first dive at probably around 9, depending how smoothly everything goes.

Surface interval (bring water, snacks, etc), get tanks refilled, then back in the water.

I understand some people are talking grabbing lunch in Monterey then heading back, while others might want to do a 3rd dive in the afternoon. We can play that by ear depending on carpools and conditions. Looking forward to it!

    I managed to find parking at the lower parking lot. Anything by the grass is full.

    Will be there but maybe about 20 minutes late

    Hey all...I haven't been able to shake my cold so don't think that I can risk diving and need to bail. :-( The conditions are actually looking better so it might be a very nice morning. Is someone else able/willing to be the point person so that you're all able to connect there tomorrow morning?

    I'm also trying to find a ride for Ana and Samantha who I was going to carpool with. Anyone still have space in their car for either or both of them? Thanks all for your help and so sorry I won't be there!

    -Kevin

      Sorry to join the conversation until now, and sorry you will miss the dive Kevin, hope you get better soon! I am coming from San Jose and also plan to stay overnight and dive Sunday. Looking forward to tomorrow!

      January 25, 2013

    • Justin O

      Hey, sorry. Not sure yet whether I'm staying Saturday night, still up in the air. See everyone in the morning!

      January 25, 2013

  • Ed K.

    Hope to see everyone there! I drive a white honda accord with a dive sticker on the trunk.

    January 25, 2013

    • Justin O

      I'll be in a white Subaru Outback and will be wearing a yellow sweatshirt, should be there just before eight.

    Are the breakwater dives like this good for beginners that were certified in previous years?

      Thanks Justin. I'll do that before attempting the breakwater dives with the group. Have an awesome time down there... Sono Geloso!

      January 24, 2013

    • Justin O

      Kurt, also, please feel free to come with us, anyway (if you want). There are lots of ranges in experience, and bamboo reef teachers will actually be at breakwater this weekend.

    Im leaving from oakland and can a couple people in my car.

    January 24, 2013

  • Kevin W.

    The conditions are not looking too good. They are calling for 6-9 foot swells on Saturday morning and low 50s and raining.

    1 · January 24, 2013

    • Kevin W.

      Justin - yeah just checked again and you're right. not sure where I got that! Must be dazed on decongestant trying to get rid of the residual of this cold so I can hopefully dive. We'll see what the wind/wave predictions are tomorrow.

      January 24, 2013

    • Justin O

      Get better! I'm really crossing my fingers for decent conditions! I'm also pretty willing to do quite crappy conditions, so long as it isn't bordering on dangerous. Hope to see you down there.

      January 24, 2013

  • Peter T.

    Hey all, I'm heading down from SF and have two open spaces in my car if anyone still needs a ride, and needs to be picked up on the way down south. Thanks, Peter

    I'm interested and could do either the 12th or 26th. Any suggestions on where to rent dive gear? Would this be a day trip and would anyone be interested in carpooling? I live in Oakland.

    December 18, 2012

    • Kevin W.

      I can definitely drive if we need another car. I'm going to send out an email to get a quick survey of who is driving and/or needs rides to try to coordinate this.

      January 13, 2013

    • Samantha

      Kevin - If there is still space, I would love to carpool. I have all my gear including tank. I live in South San Francisco off of 280 on El Camino Real. Thanks.

      January 15, 2013

  • Peter T.

    I'd be interested in carpooling too- nice to offset some gas costs. I can either drive or contribute to the mileage bill if someone else did. I have a small SUV so could probably fit two others and gear. Conditions early are better, so that would mean leaving around 5:30am or so from SF/Oakland. Yes, I'm a morning person ; )

      Hi Peter & hussam, a family emergency just came up and I will be out of the country for the next few weeks, sorry I am unable to make it to this dive anymore! You guys have fun and I hope to join u soon

      January 9, 2013

    • Peter T.

      No problem Maggie, hope everything is ok and safe travels. Best, Peter

  • terry g.

    I just got my o/w class assignments, and I'll be at Breakwater on the 26th & 27th - so I'm down for a group dive anytime after about 1pm? Metridium Field? Anyone? Buehler?...

    January 4, 2013

    • Kevin W.

      Terry - I could be open to pushing this back to the afternoon (extra sleep!) depending what others think. Or maybe we some will want to stick around and do an afternoon dive as well. What are conditions like in the afternoon this time of year though...does it deteriorate later in the day?

      January 8, 2013

    • terry g.

      It could really go either way, sometimes it clears up, sometimes the opposite; this past saturday degraded as the day wore on, and it was raining by 3 or so, and it was really surgey....

      January 8, 2013

  • Andriy

    Hi, I did not mean to change the date ;) Looks like I cannot remove it after that.

    December 25, 2012

  • Andriy­ changed the date and time to Saturday, January 26, 2013 at 9:00 AM

    December 25, 2012

  • Chris B.

    Either day is great. I'd love to come down.'

    I've had great experience renting from the dive shop right there on the pier at Breakwater.

    1 · December 19, 2012

  • Peter T.

    I could probably do either date- Saturdays work great.

    December 14, 2012

  • terry g.

    Not sure what my schedule looks like this far out, but I do tend to jump in the car at the slightest opportunity to dive (typically saturdays); I'll keep checking back...

    December 14, 2012

  • Kevin W.

    I should be able to make this if you want to go on the 26th. Thanks for posting!

    December 13, 2012

  • Mahmoud K.

    I prefer the 26th

    1 · December 12, 2012

  • Hussam

    I'm new to the bay area and looking forward to diving the local sites. My Sundays are free, and I can try to free up a Saturday every few weeks. So if you can confirm either Saturdays, I can try to take it off.
