Hello! I’m a relatively new diver looking for buddies in and around the Monterey area. I’ve done shore dives at Breakwater and a boat dive with Beach Hopper II to Eric’s pinnacle and Octopus reef. I would like to go diving more. Hope this is a great way to do that!

From mhdiver: Contact Hawkeye54 on dive buddy. He lives in Monterey, has a boat, is an instructor, great guy. Dives multiple times a week. You won’t be disappointed!

Awesome! I’ll reach out to Hawkeye. Thank you for the tip :)

From Jamesvp: If you’re free the first week of January, I’d be up to dive with you! I’m actually a Boston diver, but I’m visiting Monterey just after the new year and would love a dive buddy.

I’m from the North East, too! Spent a lot of time in Boston. Born and raised just outside of NYC. It would be great to meet up with you the first week of January. I’ll send you a message!

My name’s Scott. I’m a science teacher, and I have something around 150 dives, most of them in Monterey. I’m a safe and cautious diver.
I’m on winter break right now, and I’d kind of like to get a dive or two in this Saturday, January 5.
In the past, I’ve driven down there (I live in San Leandro, just south of Oakland), rented 2 tanks from
Bamboo Reef Monterey, done a dive, then a surface interval, then a second dive, then returned the
tanks. I usually find that I can make it to Monterey by about 10am or so, and be on the road home by maybe 4 or 5pm.
Obviously, I’m flexible. But I bet if you’re going to drive all the way to Monterey, you’d rather get two
dives than one, right? ;)
Let me know if you’re interested!
