January 22nd – Club Dive at Lover’s #3 – 8:30 am

Thanks for Opendivesites.org for the details of our January Club dive!

RSVP if you are coming by email to info@montereybayseaotters.org, and meet at the glass-bottomed swan boat.

Lovers 3 is one of three sets of staircases that provide diving access to Otter Cove from Ocean View Blvd. This site can be difficult to park at on busy weekends but is otherwise very accessible.

There are two major routes here:

1. Surface swim out and then pick your way through the kelp in a north-westerly direction to find deeper water towards the middle of the cove. The kelp patches are not very large or dense on this end of the Cove and you may end up traversing sand and rock rather than anything too interesting.

2. Follow the rocky shoreline North East around Lovers Point and return or exit the water at Lovers Cove. The water is shallower, a bit surgier around the point and fairly urchin-barrened out north of the point.

Lovers 3 can be found at 36.626703, -121.917084.
