The Boat Dive is On – August 22nd!

We’re hoping for good weather on Sunday, August 22nd , because the club has chartered the Double Down for another boat dive! This compact vessel is a wonderful opportunity to dive with only club friends. The club chartered the Double Down about a year ago and had a wonderful time. Dive Coordinator Corey is a big fan of Pinnacles Dive Center in Novato, as this is a business that gives back to the community.

Captain Rick will likely shoot for Carmel Bay, weather permitting. The boat will have water and snacks, and the club will supplement with additional refreshments. You can reserve air or NITROX tanks directly with Pinnacles for $10 and $20, respectively. There is a small head with a porta-potty and a canopy over most of the boat. Captain Rick has a few post-dive jackets for anyone who gets chilled, and will fresh-water rinse all your gear upon return to A Dock.

The cost for the two-tank trip is $110 per person and includes gratuity and refreshments. We’ll meet at A Dock at the Monterey Municipal Wharf at 8 a.m. This 28 ft aluminum boat is still observing COVID restrictions on its passenger load, so we will take six reservations from club members. Contact Dive Coordinator Corey at divecoordinator@montereybayseaotters.org with any questions.

To hold your spot, email Walan at Treasurer@montereybayseaotters.org to make payment arrangements. More details will be provided at that time. This will likely be the last club boat dive of 2021 so don’t wait to reserve your space! – Walan Chang
