Keep Diving with bamboo reef

Already certified? Keep your skills sharp, explore new dive sites, and meet your local dive community with our local fun dives, dive tours of Monterey Bay, and dive trips!



SCUBA Diving is a fantastic but not necessarily budget-friendly sport. It demands time, gear, and, most importantly, a dive buddy – because diving is better together.

Who makes the ideal Dive Buddy? It's the friends you already know and love spending time with, of course! Bring them to Bamboo Reef, and as a token of our appreciation for recruiting a new dive buddy, we're giving you a $50.00 gift certificate.

For every friend who signs up, whether they're beginners or returning for more training, you'll be one step closer to upgrading your gear or planning that epic dive trip you've been dreaming of.

Don't hesitate; invite your friends to join you in this incredible underwater adventure today!


  • You can't refer yourself when booking alongside a friend.

  • Referrals and bookings must be separate.

  • Only one referral per group is allowed. You can't refer each other into the same training.
