July 23, 8:00 a.m., Club Dive, Butterfly House, Carmel

Please RSVP if you are coming by email to info@montereybayseaotters.org, and meet at the intersection. 

Butterfly House is located at the intersection of Scenic Road and Stewart Way in Carmel-bythe-Sea. There is a large expensive house there with an odd roof that resembles a butterfly perched on the rocks overlooking a small cove. Parking is on the street and we access the beach by descending an eroding goat path down to the water. The goat path to the water is not for the meek, so it is one of the more difficult dives we will attempt this year.
There are no restrooms at this site, so if you are diving dry you may want to stop in to the port-a-potty located just along the road in at Carmel River Beach. We will meet up at the intersection and observe conditions before doing a briefing and gearing up. However, the site is beautiful and one of the nicest shore dives in Carmel. There are very large granite pinnacles and chutes to explore. There are large and abundant fish species here as well as lots of invertebrate life. This is a good dive to bring your camera and, if the visibility looks promising, a wide- angle lens.
If this site is not dive-able, we will retreat to a backup site.
