Our after-work dive will be at the Municipal Wharf #2. If you have not dived this location before you should definitely check it out. We will meet at 6 p.m. at the parking in front of the London Bridge Pub near the intersection of Del Monte and Figueroa. It gets dark about 6:00 so this is considered to be a night dive. We will have a mandatory dive briefing at 5:30.
This is generally an easy place to dive at night because it is very easy to navigate amongst all the pilings. The depth is a fairly consistent 20-25 feet deep. This is the only muck dive that we
do in Monterey where we find both black-eyed gobies and bay gobies living amongst the oyster shells and discarded crab pots along the edge of the wharf. One spot fringeheads and
the occasional sarcastic fringehead can be found in discarded bottles and timbers.
This is a night dive, so please bring two dive lights and a marker light. After the dive we will probably eat something in a nearby pub or restaurant.
