10.14.17 Half Moon Bay Survey Weekend

Postby dabbott » Tue Aug 01, 2017 4:09 pm

This is our second weekend where we are going to attempt to add four new sites in and around the Montara MPA. This reserve was never surveyed by PISCO and has never been surveyed by us, so it will be a huge accomplishment if we can get it done. This is an area that I've been interested in ever since 2014 when Jim Steele pointed out that it’s south of the abalone fishery closure, but north of the sea otter range, and used to be a somewhat popular place for ab diving.

All dives will be from Phil Sammet's boat the Siren launching out Pillar Point Harbor in Half Moon Bay Be advised this is small boat diving, getting suited up, entering and exiting the water can be challenging if you're not accustomed to it.

These sites are heavily condition dependent (we’ll be diving near Mavericks), as such we're going to wait to decide what days we're going to go and what sites we are going to do until several days prior when we have a better idea of conditions. I’d like to make “I dove Mavericks” t-shirts for everyone who comes on the trip.

Hi Dan,

Can you clarify? Will surveying take place Sat and Sunday if conditions are good? Or do we need to sign up for the whole weekend and wait to hear about the date when it gets closer?

Thanks!
