Dive the Coast 2013 will be the largest dive event in California history. It will also be the first event of its kind, where SCUBA divers come together to work toward a common goal of raising awareness concerning the growing threats to our ocean, while supporting local conservation efforts at the same time. Save Our Shores is excited to help out on the ocean conservation side of things!
The kickoff event, Dive the Bay, will take place this Saturday, October 15, aboard the Silver Prince from 9am – 2pm out of Montery Harbor. Dive the Bay will begin with a recreational fun dive, and followed by a test relay dive to calibrate dive distance, depth, and tank time logistics for the much larger Dive the Coast event. California Diver Magazine will also be on board.
Save Our Shores’ Lauren Gilligan, an experienced open-water diver, will join the group of divers for Dive the Bay this Saturday. She will give a brief talk to the group about the importance of California’s Marine Protected Areas, the ‘Underwater State Parks’ offshore where vital marine habitats and marine life are now being protected in California waters.
