Join us EVERY month as we explore Northern California's underwater world!

We dive off of the rocky landscapes of Sonoma, the kelp forests of Monterey and Carmel, and even the cool crystal clear waters of Lake Tahoe! 


Fun dives are a great way to keep your skills fresh, and keep in touch with other divers. Come with us and experience the unique beauty of our local coast!

You must be SCUBA or freedive certified to join a fun dive.

2020 Dates & Locations​

**Sites are subject to change - a final decision will be made on the morning-of after a review of the beaches and conditions**


Every month we host a fun dive from a boat!

Why boat dive? Entering and exiting the water is typically easier than a beach or shore entry. 

Boat diving also allows access to locations that are out of reach from the shore.

These dive sites can have more life because they aren't visited as often.

Equipment Rental: Not included. Call (831) 372-1685 to reserve your gear now!

Scuba Divers: All fun dives are two tank dives. 

Food & Drinks: Water is provided on the boat. Recommended to bring extra water, snacks or food.
