New Meetup: Intermediate Coral Street Beach

Announcing a new Meetup for The Greater Bay Area Scuba Lovers Meetup!

What: Intermediate Coral Street Beach

When: November 7,[masked]:00 AM

Coral Street Beach
Ocean View Blvd & Coral St
Pacific Grove, CA 93950

It is time for another dive at this great site. This is the furthest out towards the open sea of all the Monterey Bay sites. The seaward arm of land that creates the cove provides excellent protection when wave conditions are marginal elsewhere, making this site safe and easy for entrance and exit. The convenience between street parking and the beach cannot be beat. This site is a really nice blend of edginess and comfort suited to the skills of our intermediate-level divers and feeds ones desire for a time worth remembering.

We never know what we might find out here. The closer a site is to the open ocean, the greater the chance of seeing something more interesting than elsewhere. The open ocean is just around the corner, so who knows? Only those who go will find out first hand.

Meetup dived this site twice in mid-October, once according to plan and then as first-choice backup site when Carmel Bay was too rough to dive. It is worth a return trip and we hope all you good divers will join us.

The bottom here consists of large rock structures and their attached kelp alternating with open sandy channels. The variety of habitat broadens the possibility of creature sightings. We might see pelagics (open ocean fish that inhabit the open ocean but claim no specific lair) cruising the sand channels so remember to look up and look around. We might see something we have never seen before around any corner of the rock structures under the kelp. Some of us might not even notice the ambush predators laying in wait for their next meal along the habitat margins, either atop some low flat rock or hunkered into the sand; so if an assistant organizer does not point it out to you, please point it out to them.

Be there or...well, just be there.
