Break Water, Monterrey Bay, CA. - Monterrey CA

Break Water, Monterrey Bay, CA. is a shore accessible salt water dive site, located in Monterrey, CA. The maximum depth is 41-50ft/12-15m. The average visibility is 36-40ft/11-12m. This dive site provides bathrooms and airfills.

I dove there in the fall. Visibility was good. Seals, otters and sea lions all reside there. While diving we had both a seal and sea lion visit us. Easy shore entry with lots of facilities nearby. Very relaxing dive with lots to see. According to my dive buddy, who lives in the area, this site is very busy in the summer with divers and he was surprised at how good the vis was on our dives. He had only dove there in the summer previously and said then it was often mere inches or a few feet. The two days we dove, there were only a half dozen divers so I would recommend the fall. Day time temps were in the mid 70’s and the water was 56 degrees at 40 ft.
