    San Francisco

    I most likely will be going to San Francisco in June for a conference and hope to take a few days off there.

    Looking for information on where to dive in SF, and rebreather friendly operators.

    Thanks.

    Give Phil Sammet a call. Most of the good diving around SF is in Monterey.

    You wouldn't want to actually dive in SF bay. Crap vis, muddy bottom, strong currents, and nothing much to see. Other than that, it's great.

    Monterey Bay, about a two hour drive south of San Francisco, is a different story. Lots to see, although vis can be poor at times, depending on your specific location. Point Lobos State Reserve is one of my favorite places to dive. It requires reservations, and there is a fee to enter. The number of dives teams allowed in per day is restricted, and solo diving is prohibited. It's been a wildlife preserve for over 45 years, so there is more to see than there is off of Cannery Row.

    I second the recommendation for Phil Sammet, but know that he is very busy these days, so contact him well in advance of your arrival.

    There are quite a few decent charter boats in the area. Not all are rebreather-friendly though. The Beachhopper II is small, and rebreather-friendly.


    For Monterey Sea Conditions, look here.

    Hope this helps,

    Scott
