Point Lobos, Middle Reef in Whaler’s Cove
Monterey County, south of Carmel
Type: Saltwater
Difficulty: Snorkling, Beginner, Intermediate
Entry: Moderate Shore Entry , Boat Access
Attractions: Large Rock Formation / Pinnacle, Boulder Pile / Shelves, Kelp Forest

Point Lobos State Reserve boasts the most spectacular California shore dives. Its protected status and limited access have allowed the marine life to flourish among the most beautiful natural surrounding such as walls, giant kelp forests, and granite reefs.

Enter the water at the boat launch in Whaler’s Cove and swim parallel to the parking lot past the first small point with some rocks that are exposed above the surface. Descend and swim North East across the sandy channel until you encounter the thick kelp and granite reef that extends parallel to the northeast cliffs of the cove. This is a shallow dive with playful harbor seals, large schools of blue rock fish and an abundance of large granite structures covered in invertebrates and fish life to explore. The structure gets larger and deeper the farther north you swim.

See the Point Lobos website for more information.
