Monterey Boat Dive @ Monterey, CA
Apr 1 – Apr 2 all-day

Monterey Bay Boat Dive

April 1st and 2nd

Join your fellow Dolphin Divers of Sacramento members and dive the waters of Monterey Bay.  We have 4 boats ready to take our members on a weekend of diving.  There is no cost to members for the boat dive.  You are responsible for your own travel, food, lodging, and dive gear.  The Boat Ride is FREE!.  We will make two dives on Saturday and one dive on Sunday.  Dive locations will be determined on the quality of the water.  Boats will depart the Coast Guard Jetty Launch Ramp at 9 am on both days.  On the way to the dive sites, you get to see the hundreds of seals, a handful of otters and perhaps a large sunfish or two.
Dive activities will include sightseeing, photography, and perhaps some hunting.  If you sign up for the dive, please show up.  We have 16 diver spots available.  If you have any questions about the dive or what to expect, please email me soon.  The first 16 divers to sign up will get to go.

Columbus Day Camping @ Albion River Campground
Oct 6 – Oct 9 all-day
An FYI for anyone wondering about the annual Underwater Easter Egg Hunt: The Crazy Horse restaurant, where we held our awards dinner, has gone out of business. I did not find another venue that can accommodate our group of 60+ for a rate that makes sense. Most places charge separately for room rental and food, making them cost prohibitive.
Ken Takata is not hosting the Memorial Weekend camp/dive trip this year because of the historically rough water during most previous events. Instead
I have reserved the meadow campsites at Albion River Campground for Columbus Day weekend, October 6 – 9. Albion River Campground is right on the Albion River where it empties into the ocean. Activities can include kayaking on the river (rentals available) and/or ocean, Diving, visiting Mendocino or Fort Bragg (the ice cream at “Cowlicks” in Fort Bragg is one of the stops I NEVER missStuck out tongue winking eye)  or just hanging out around the campfire enjoying each others company. We will also make a couple of motorboat and kayak trips up the river into the redwoods.

If you want to join us contact the campground to make your reservation. You can choose any of our reserved sites from D1 to D25, or one off the rental trailers, B22 – B24,. There are also a few full hookup sites, A2 – A15 with sewer connections, close to the group area. (I am in site A2 because I will be there for 7 nights) When you call for a camping reservation be sure to ask for one of the sites in “D” section, that I reserved for our group. This will be a joint event with the Seahorses dive club. If you camp in a tent bring a heater and extension cord: every site has water and electricityFireRelieved.
Please let me know when you make a reservation so I can keep track of how many, and which, spaces we take. Any spaces not reserved by us will revert back to the Albion CG for renting to non-members.
