Join us for our spring survey of Coral Street, in Pacific Grove. Located towards the end of Monterey Peninsula, Coral St. is one of my favorite sites - on a good day, it can be truly spectacular. The site has little protection from the prevailing winds and swells, so on a bad day it can be....interesting.

We'll meet up at 8:30 AM on Saturday June 8. The site is located at the intersection of Ocean View Blvd and Coral St - park along Ocean View, rather than in the pullout (the entry is more or less opposite 1209 Ocean View Blvd). Bring 2 tanks, your survey gear, and a working dive light.

Note that the site has no bathroom facilities, so plan accordingly.

Who's in?

1. David H.
2. Peter O.
3. Keith R.
4. Rob K.
5. Caitlin C.

Oh drat, I have to cancel for this Saturday, June 8, Coral Street. I have a minor injury, not compatible with diving. Hmmph.

Despite a less than promising forecast we managed to get some work done at Coral St this morning - we had passable viz (2.5-3m), but pretty heavy surge, and by the time we were done with our first dive it was pretty obvious it wouldn't be worth going in for a second. Still, we got things started by knocking out 2 cores and 2 fish-only transects. My thanks to Rob, Keith, & Peter for coming out this morning and braving the surge!

Keith will be organizing a follow-up survey; check the forum for date & time.

Thanks so much to everyone who came out on three occasions to survey Coral Street. Turns out it was ok that we had to head back a couple times because the conditions just got sweeter and sweeter! Finally some great vis... albeit chilly water! Special thanks to David Horwich for organizing the first dive day and to Vince Christian for organizing the last day and for everyone who showed up for the surveys. Some highlights were that we saw some large schools of young bocaccio (which I have never seen) and lots of rainbow perch in the shallows! Super exciting!

Thanks for all that you do!
