    I'd like to invite bug hunters to join me at Reef Point for a second dive if you would rather hunt after the first dive at Treasure Island!

    Seriously considering joining on this dive, I need a reason to test out my drysuit.

    Can I ask a "stupid" question? How do you haul all your gear from the parking structure to Treasure Island beach? I may sound like a weakling, but that seems like a long way, especially coming back up. Do you bring a wagon or a dolly for your tanks? Again, I know I'm a little new, I've just always done beach dives that were right near a resort or dive shop on the sand.

      We get ready at the parking structure and carry our gear (everything we are diving with) on us... Like we would in the ocean almost. The only time I did treasure island we did a one tank dive. So your tank is attached to your BCD. Its shallow so you get about a 40+ minute dive with one tank. Its not a bad walk. Some stairs and a path... Better than the steep stairs in Laguna at Shaw's cove.

      I agree with Sheryl. We get in all our gear at the car and then walk over to the steps. It wasn't bad at all. If you have a locking box and prefer, you could roll it all the way to the beach since there is a ramp along side the stairs. You could get geared up right there at the beach if you are concerned with the walk. I'll help you with all of this when you get there that morning. I'm looking forward to meeting you.

    Melissa:
    The climb down and up is not pleasant, but it's not so bad that anyone in reasonable shape can't handle it. The dive is worth it. The resort has some golf-cart-like vehicles, and if you talk to the front desk at the Montage, maybe they'd be willing to haul gear for a modest fee. I don't think any of us has ever pursued that, and it can't hurt to ask!
