After-work dive – Wharf 2 – Friday, January 8th at 6 pm

Reminder – if are planning to attend this dive, given the late notice and the unsettled weather, please respond ASAP to this page or by sending and email to email to info@montereybayseaotters.org.

Our after-work dive will be at the Municipal Wharf #2. We dive this location with the permission of the harbormaster, so we don’t do it often. If you have not dived this location before you should definitely check it out. It gets dark about 6:00 so this is considered to be a night dive. We will have a mandatory dive briefing at 6:30.

This is generally an easy place to dive at night because it is very easy to navigate alongside all the pilings. The harbormaster does not want us to go beneath the actual wharf, so we will prowl the edges. 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 might eat something in a nearby pub or restaurant, depending on where we are with COVID.

Please be sure to RSVP if you are coming on the MBSO Facebook page or by email to info@montereybayseaotters.org, as soon as possible (given the late notice and unsettled weather recently), and meet at the restrooms at the start of the wharf. All times are for mandatory check-in – divers must be geared up for the briefing 30 minutes later
