Vis in Monterey/Carmel/Big Sur?
« on: August 03, 2020, 09:28:29 AM »
Been a while since my last post but I am finally going to be able to get back to diving more frequently again...moved back to the area, job in a good spot, kids born and big enough for easy babysitting. The works.

With that in mind, any recent vis reports for Monterey/Carmel/Big Sur?

I dove Del Monte last Sunday and Coral street Saturday and both were pretty bad, five to ten feet of visibility at best. At Coral street there was thick green haze, but it improved below 20 feet. My buddy posted this video from Saturday: . I would definitely like to know if it is better elsewhere.

I dove Carmel and Monterey yesterday 8/3. Viz was really good at both locations. Water temp 53-54 in Carmel and 56-57 in Monterey. Both a hazy 25' looking down towards the bottom but once you headed towards the bottom the horizontal viz was insane, I'm talking an easy 60+ feet. Crystal clear. Oh, and I found a ten pound butt  :D
