Mar 10, Club Dive, Wharf II, 6 PM Monterey, CA

For everyone’s diving pleasure, the club would like to thank all
participants for RSVP by email to

Our club 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. All times are for SHOW
times, to assess conditions – divers
must be geared up for the
mandatory briefing 30 minute later.
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.
RSVP if you are coming on the MBSO Facebook page or by email to, and meet near the bathrooms at the base of the wharf.  Municipal Wharf 2
can be found at lat, long 36.601849, -121.889570 .

General Guidelines for After Work & Night Dives: To participate in after work dives or night
must carry a minimum of two lights, one main light and one marker light (usually attached to
valve). The dive must be terminated if a person experiences a malfunction of his/her light(s).
Carrying three lights is strongly recommended so that the dive team can continue the dive if
one ceases to function.
