Monterey Weekend-Boat & Shore Diving-Oct. 1-5, 2020

Join Channel Islands Dive Adventures for our Monterey Weekend Trip doing Boat & Shore Diving

We will be diving by both shore and boat along with some sightseeing in the area. The Monterey area has so much to offer.  We did this trip in late Sept. 2019 and had a BLAST. This year we will be in town Thursday to Monday, Oct. 1-5, 2020. This trip is for divers, non-divers and anyone else who just wants to have fun


Trip Highlights

Whether you are diving or not there is something for everyone such as whale watching, shore diving, visiting the Monterey Aquarium, Point Lobos (hiking & diving), boat diving, bike riding, hiking, sightseeing and the list goes on. Actually with 4 days all you can do is touch on some of the many things to do.



What is our plan?

Good question and it all depends on who joins us. CIDA has a number of friends that live in the Monterey area and hopefully a few will be joining.  Ken and his wife Tessie plan to go whale watching with Monterey Bay Whale Watch on Friday morning. They have a 4-5 hour trip that is $49.00, departs at 9 am and is back by 2 pm.  Afterwards we will probably have BBQ and dive at Lovers Point.

Saturday is the boat dive on the Beachhopper ll and Sunday morning we will probably do a dive at the breakwall. In your free time you can visit the Aquarium or got to Point Lobos for some hiking.
