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 5:30. 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.
General Guidelines for After Work & Night Dives: To participate in after work dives or night dives, divers must carry a minimum of two lights, one main light and one marker light (usually attached to the tank valve). The dive must be terminated if a person experiences a malfunction of his/her light(s). That is why carrying three lights is strongly recommended so that dive team can continue the dive if one diver’s light ceases to function. For everyone’s diving pleasure, the club would like to thank all participants for adhering to these recommendations for club dives. These dives are a lot of fun, come out and join us!
RSVP if you are coming on the MBSO Facebook page or by email to email@example.com, and meet near the bathrooms at the base of the wharf
