In 2009, the Monterey Bay Sea Otter’s Dive Club adopted San Carlos Beach within the
California Coastal Commission’s ‘Adopt a Beach’ program. We now organize quarterly beach
clean-ups that are both fun for divers and helpful to our environment.
It’s that time once again Sea Otters! We will be picking up debris on the topside of San Carlos
Beach as well as underwater along the Breakwater Wall on Saturday April 15th. We want our
adopted beach in tip-top shape. We will meet at 8:30 at the picnic tables that are close to the
beach. Non-diver guests are always welcome to join us because who doesn’t love a trash-free
Peet’s Coffee in Monterey will graciously donate their delicious coffee for this event and there
will be perfectly paired doughnuts provided by the MBSO club. All we have to do is hope for
sunshine and a calm sea, which would make this a perfect dive day.
Please bring a knife to cut fishing line and a goodie-bag to put your trashy collections in. If you
don’t have a goodie-bag, the club has some that we will happily loan out.
We hope you will join us in cleaning our beautiful adopted beach!
