Monastery is arguably Monterey County's best beach
dive. But seven days out of ten, it's advanced
diving. Two days out of ten, it's undivable. One
day out of ten it's the upper end of intermediate
diving. It's NEVER a beginner's beach. Don't
dive it without someone who knows it. Entry and
exit require special techniques. Conditions can
change quickly. It is singularly unforgiving.
GO WITH SOMEONE WHO KNOWS HOW TO EVALUATE IT AND
HOW TO GET IN AND OUT.
It's also wonderful diving, arguably Monterey
County's best shore dive. The south end is
shallower and more sheltered.
If you have to worry about dropping off into the
abyss, you aren't ready.
