Aaron from San Francisco CA | Scuba Diver

I’m a beginning/intermediate diver who dives almost solely in Monterey, California. As of this writing, I have logged 63 dives in and around the Monterey Bay area. I dive as much as possible. After hitting my 100th dive, my long-term goal is to obtain a Self Reliant Diver certification through PADI. I enjoy diving with others, but I want to be able to rely on myself, as well. I think this will make me a better buddy and a better diver.

I wear an Aqualung Sola FX wetsuit, Knight Hawk BCD, and generally use rented steel 100 tanks. By SAC rate is not stellar, and I am constantly working to improve.

Sites I’ve dived:

Monterey: Aumentos Reef, Hopkins Deep, Aquarium Reef (intake pipe), Breakwater, Metridium Fields, Metridium Mountain, Cloud Mountain, Slate Beds, McAbee Pinnacle, Chase Reef (Outpost), Octopus Reef, Hopkins Reef.

North Coast: Fort Ross

Carmel: Point Lobos (Whaler’s Cover, Middle Reef Structure)- 4 times.

Channel Islands: Anacapa Island (Spectre).

Sorry, I missed your post from last month, but yes, I would be interested in diving in the Monterey area. I’ve been trying to get into the water most of January, but the weather hasn’t been cooperating when I have been free to dive. Shoot me a message or text if there is a date or time you want to get out. I can dive most weekends and I can get there in about 2.5 hrs.

I sent you a text. If you are free next weekend (Feb 2), we could plan to do breakwater. Let me know. I’m very flexible.

He SlowMike. I ended up taking your advice and going out on the Spectre last summer (back when could sleep on board the night before). Anyway, if you are still up for a Pt. Lobos dive one of these days, let me know.
