Monterey Dive Sites

The Monterey Peninsula, comprising the city of Monterey and the surrounding communities of Pacific Grove, Pebble Beach and Carmel-By-The-Sea, is a world-wide diving destination and treasured diving attraction for California divers. Popular for both its dramatic shore dives on natural reefs and for the endless boat diving possibilities. Dive shops and charters are plentiful, as are hotels and other top side activities making Monterey the perfect dive destination.
The surf pounded rocky shores and steep cliffs provide home to colorful invertebrates, wide varieties of fish, and exciting encounters with small sharks, rays and skates. Divers are frequently accompanied on their dives by seals and sea lions.
Water tends to be colder than most people imagine for California (in the 50s Brrr!) so 7mm wetsuits or even dry suits are standard apparel when diving in Monterey. Local diving hazards include large and powerful surf and surge, and visibility can drop dramatically during storms. 15-30 is an average good day but it can be much higher in calm weather. Check out the description in the dive site information for specific hazards, check in with local shops and charters and enjoy your perfect Monterey diving experience.
