New Meetup: Night dive in Monterey

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

What: Night dive in Monterey

When: Saturday, April 24,[masked]:00 PM

Cannery Row x Foam St Monterey, CA
Monterey, CA 93940

Woo! My tanks are back from hydro, so it's time to plan another night diving event! I'm interested in hearing suggestions from the group as to venue. Have a favorite spot you'd like to share? Tell me about it!

To seed the conversation, I'm going to propose we do Breakwater. We can do Metridium for the first dive, being grateful that the winter storms have cleared away most of the kelp on our surface swim (David). Second dive, we can go octopus hunting on the wall.

Sunset is around 8:00 pm, so I'm going to propose that we meet and brief the first dive at 5:00, and start the dive at 5:30. We would plan to be out of the water by 6:30, and back in for the second dive at 7:30 pm. I'd really like to stick to this schedule, so if it takes you more than 15 minutes to gear up, please be there getting ready before 5:30 (I know I will be). After dive #2, I'd love for us to meet somewhere for dinner and a beer. I suggest Gianni's.

As always, I'm flexible about any of these plans. If you'd like to propose something different, I'm all ears. I just want to get us out diving and having fun!

If you've been meaning to head out with this group for a while but haven't gotten around to it, this is a perfect opportunity. At night, the rocks explode with color as shrimp, crab, and other exciting creatures come out to play among the anemones. Octopus hunt along the sandy seafloor. It's an exciting time to be underwater.

ADDED BONUS: I'll provide plenty of hot cocoa for chilly bodies in between dives. And I'm bringing marshmallows :)

A few things to remember: bring a tanklight so we know where you are. Bring a flashlight so you know where you are. Bring an extra light in case the first one burns out, and you forget where you are.

I look forward to seeing you there!
