McAbee Shore Dives and Lunch

When: Sun Aug 28, 9:00am - 3:00pm
Where: McAbee Beach, Monterey (map)
Contact: Brooke Berger

There is no cost for this event

Lunch: For those of you interested, Brooke has kindly offered her place on Lighthouse Avenue for a BBQ potluck lunch and games.

Diver Level:  Beginner.  Due to the easy entry and exits, this will be a great dive if you haven't been in the water in awhile, or have limited experience in cold water diving.   

General Dive Plan:  (2) Shore dives starting at 10:00am, with a surface interval of approximately (1) hour.  Max depth will be ~ 60 feet.  There may be patches of kelp that you must maneuver around.  The bottom is comprised of sand with rocky outcroppings.

Access, Entry and Hazards:   Divers enter the water from McAbee beach (next to El Torito restaurant).  From the beach extends a sand bottom which gradually slopes down to a maximum of 60 feet.

Equipment: Please bring all of your dive gear, which should include: (2) tank and weights.  It is also recommended that you have a surface signal device, for example a “safety sausage”, mirror or whistle. A dive light is also recommended.

General Information: There are restrooms available in the parking garage on Wave Street.  Street parking is metered so be prepared to feed the meter.  Parking in the El Torito restaurant parking lot is sometimes possible. The attendant will ask you to pay a fee of $10. However, they sometimes prohibit parking there during the high season. Bring a warm hat, gloves and jacket to stay warm in between dives.  Please feel free to bring your non-diving friends/family.
