Nor/Cen Cal-Mon Sept 16- Carmel River SUCCESS!

Postby swelll » Fri Aug 30, 2013 11:18 am

Hi Reef Checkers,
We were not able to finish up Carmel River and South Monastery a couple weeks ago because of poor visibility. I am chartering Phil Sammet's small inflatable dive boat on Monday Sept 16 to finish up those surveys. He will launch the boat out of Lobos and Reef Check will pay for dive reservations and entrance fees. I've heard that vis has improved so I imagine these will be some sweet dives. You'll need to provide 2 full tanks for the dives.

What: two dives in Carmel

When: Monday Sept 16, meet at 8:30am

Where: meet at Whalers Cove in Point Lobos

What to bring: your diving C-card to get into the park, all dive gear and survey gear, including 2 full tanks

Who wants to join us?
1. Megan (not diving)
2. Matt G. (2)
3. Carol C. (2)
4. Keith R (2)
5. Vince C
6. Bruce S (2)

Thanks so much to Bruce, Carol, Keith, Vince, and Matt for showing up on Monday to finish surveying our Carmel River site. We had a lot to do since during our first attempt a few weeks ago the poor vis allowed us to only survey 2 cores and 2 fish transects. We chartered the small charter boat of Reef Check's favorite captain Phil Sammet and launched out of Point Lobos. We picked a beautiful day and while I heard reports of poor vis we were delighted to find excellent visibility at our site. The smiles on everyone's faces made me super jealous (since I am still not diving) as Carmel River is one of my favorite sites and on a clear, sunny day the dynamic bathymetry and abundance of fish make this site shine. Folks came back with reports of giant lingcods, tons of YOYs, and an octopus. We successfully finished the site and had a fun day on the water. Thanks again everyone!!

Cheers,
Megan
