Need Monterey dive buddies for shoredives

I’m a very new scuba diver with about 20 dives under my belt and am looking for a dive buddy who’d be game for some early morning Monterey shore dives. I’ve dived Breakwater and also some of the Beachhopper 2 reef dives (Aumentos, Octopus, Eric’s Pinnacle). I live in San Francisco and can make it down to Monterey on the weekends, even on short notice. Weekdays also with some lead time.

Though I am a new diver, I am a conscientious buddy and not a total diving dorkus. I enjoy diving with photographers, as I enjoy taking my time and really exploring small niches thoroughly, but I’ll dive with anyone who is safe.

Am hoping to get a dive together soon - this weekend or the next. Breakwater is great, but am open to suggestions. I’ll lug my gear as far as I need. Drop me a line or text at 415-685-9146. :)

Greetings!
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!
Scott

Scott:

Sounds great. That’s exactly what I had in mind (two dives with a surface interval, bamboo reef etc.) Give me a call and we can discuss logistics. 415-685-9146.

Thanks for responding.

Perfect! I have a house guest right now, so I’m gonna text you, just to touch base. I’ll phone you
once my guest takes off. I hope that’s cool. I’m excited about getting in the water! :)
Thanks,
Scott

Sure thing, Ron. I’m down for weekends or even the occasional Thursday or Friday. I like breakwater and am eager to try out other Monterey shore dives, as well. Point Lobos, too. Drop me a text or phone call at 415-685-9146.
