it was overturned by the combined efforts of CenCal and others.
ironically, it is true that divers and kayakers do chew up a lot of kelp. i try to teach kelp awareness whenever i work with students and divers.
i have a friend who owns one of the B&Bs in Pacific Grove. she said the Monterey, Pacific Grove, and Carmel businesses would like to see scuba diving banned because it interferes with tourism in her view, parking, sand all over etc.
i dont have a crystal ball, so i dont know what the future may hold. it seems to me that monastery, point lobos, Stillwater/Pebble Beach, Carmel River north, the boat dives, and Del Monte Beach would always be safe for scuba divers. the fate of the other beaches is probably uncertain and i would not want to hazard speculation.
