  • We went to the Breakwater area of Monterey. This is also a very good place for divers. Its fun to see them in the water. We also like it when we see sea animals in the area.

  • Nothing much to do here. We saw a seal by the edge that made the visit more interesting. If not, there isn't much for tourists to do here, if you can't actually see Marine Life. There were some Scuba Divers, so maybe they do scuba diving, but that's pretty much it...
  • Some of the best scuba diving on the west coast of California, suitable for beginner thru expert. Lots of parking (though it can fill up quickly on weekends), restrooms, showers, and a big grass gathering area, and several great dive sites easily accessible from shore.
