After Work Dive, August 9th, 6:30 p.m. San Carlos Beach, Monterey

Ok, ok, it’s San Carlos Beach. We’ve all dove there, it’s where most of us likely learned to dive

and where we go when everywhere else is blown out. We know it like the back of our hands.

But this time will be different.

We will be doing a night dive and night dives here are pretty epic. We have come across some

interesting and uncommon species like swell sharks, sailfin sculpins, masked pricklebacks,

tree fish, vermillion rockfish and even a California spiny lobster. The breakwater has a wide

variation of observed species and during the day these usually hide in the extensive maze of

riprap that comprise the man-made structure, but at night these hidden species make their way

out to forage.

Make sure to bring two lights and a tank marker light. Make sure to check the MBSO

Facebook page for updates and we hope to see you there!
