Monterey/Northern California dive buddy needed July 9th thru 26th

I recently got certified and can’t wait to dive again. Unfortunately, I don’t have a dive buddy that can go with me more than one time this month. I am available to dive 7 days a week generally, except that I’m far from the coast so I have to plan my trips. My brother lives in Petaluma, and I can stay there to stage for a dive on the north coast any day. For budget reasons, I would like to try to dive Monterrey during the middle of the week, sometime between the 9th and the 26th.

I own my own gear even though I only have done my cert dives. No nitrox cert.

I would like to do some beginner dives (since I am a beginner), but I am fairly comfortable in the water, so after a couple of dives I’m sure I will be comfortable to move to some deeper dive sites.

Unfortunately I did not see your post until just now, a week later, unless you mean any Saturday.

-My brother and I are planning to dive the near the Breakwater on Friday the 20th, right now he’s saying that he won’t want to dive Saturday. I would be happy to stay another night if anyone would like to be my buddy, Saturday, July 21st in Monterey area shore dive
