Hello... - Bay Area Diving


riversprite
Dec. 20th, 2004 01:00 am Hello...

I just happened to stumble across the group and thought I would help support.

I've only been diving since the end of August, but I absolutely LOVE it. I have Advanced NAUI Cert. and have logged 14 dives so far.

I plan on taking Rescue Diver when I get back from Cozumel in Feb. and am toying with the idea of going for Dive Matster after that.

I (and my friend I got certified with) am always keeping an eye open for new dive buddies. Its nice to meet people who have the same passion and it would be nice to have someone else to dive with when my friend cant make it.

Great to see ya!!!

I just got my Divecon (SSI's Divemaster and Asst. Instructor combined) certification!! I dive with Wallins Dive Center in San Carlos (101 and Holly/whipple ave's)

We have a dive on New Years day at Pt. Lobos!! I'm sooooooooo looking forward to it!!

I'm usually up for a dive and am always happy to meet new dive buddies!! We should chat and pick a date and maybe dive the Metridium field at Breakwater, or try for North Monestary beach in Carmel. The surface temp is up to 62 and the vis has been 80 plus feet the last few weeks!!

Hope you post here more, I'd like to see this group get moving so we can all dive new and exciting sites!!

My name is Morgan and again, Welcome!!!

I have dove Breakwater many times. Easy dive, but I like it.
Ive only done Monastary once so far, that entrance beats me up a little, and the exit kicks my ass. *grin*
Im actually planning on doing it again with my instructor (well, he was and will be for future classes) so im a little more confident getting in the water from the beach with hairier entrances.

Ive also Dove MacAbee and Lovers Cove.

I cant really plan anything until after Feb. My friend and I are going on a Dive trip to Cozumel in a little less than a month. Its tapping my funds.

Generally we try and hit Monterey to dive once a month.

Thats excellent. I do all that I can to dive once a month, even if it's the wall at breakwater (I can chase nudi's for an hour!! hahaha

Cozumel will be a blast, I just got back from Hawaii! (Although you'll miss all the life and color we have here!! hehehehe)

Like I said, welcome and let me know when your up for a dive and I'll do the same. I start full time at CSUH on Jan. 3rd, so I may even be available for a mid week dive every now & then!!!

I really want to dive the Butterfly house, it's supposed to be some of the best vis in Carmel bay and it hits about 90 feet pretty quick, but can be rough until after the storm season passes.

Ill keep you posted on when my friend and I plan on hitting Monterey again.

Were is Butterfly house? I have not heard of that spot yet..

Granted all I have done so far is shore dives. We want to do some boat dives when we get back from our trip.
