    Good turn out with the combination of the people from Dive n' Trips and the meetup. Probably 20 people were there.

    I'm new to the group and would like to know whether I'll need to get dry suit certified to dive in Monterey Bay? I'm certainly interested in getting certified in the next few months in any case. I've recently been diving in Port Philip Bay, Victoria and I've been diving in about 13C water (55F) with a 7mm semi-dry. I'm moving to SF this week and won't be able to bring my suit, BC and reg with me at this stage. Am I able to rent gear fairly easily?
    Thank you,
    Liz

      Liz - I moved here from the east coast two years ago and had never been in cold water. I dive in Monterey in a 7mm wetsuit with hood and it's fine. You can rent full setup at many places there, including 7 Seas which Jim mentioned. not much of a thermocline there and temps are usually in 50s. i think lowest I have personally recorded there was upper 40s. But call ahead to reserve as they can get busy on the weekends. Email me directly through the site if you'd like more info.

      You mentioned getting drysuit cert'd, so I'll go ahead and recommend my shop, Bamboo Reef (on lighthouse & Hoffman) - they have plenty of rentals and Keith & carol are flexible with individual students.

      Most likely two.

    I'm down, but I'm doing a class @ Breakwater, so I won't be available until after 12 at least....?

      You'd probably make it in time for a second dive.

      Cool - still interested, just don't know the schedule for my day....

    Never dived the wharf. Is it much different from Breakwater?

      There's under the wharf and there's the sea grass bed next to it. Both attract lots invertebrates that are often not seen at breakwater like plume anemones, fringeheads, and electric rays. There's a huge number of sea lions that haul out under the wharf too.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
