You also have an excellent way to learn about what Monterey, Carmel, & Sonoma have to offer to scuba divers in the way of marine animals and diving experiences.


We select a shore dive site or charter a boat to go to places unreachable from the shore. Our shore dives include a barbecue and drinks to enjoy as you share exploits with your fellow divers. Boat dives, we get together back on land at a nearby restaurant to talk about the dives. Experienced and knowledgeable diver leaders are present to ensure you have a safe and fun experience.
