Coral Street, Monterey Bay

I have never been a great fan of the Coral Street dive site. But slowly over time, my dive buddy John Wolfe has convinced me that there is more to this site than I previously thought. The key to the better diving is to get far off shore (200+ yds.). The site is shallow and has some interesting kelp forests. It is best done when the viz and waves will cooperate. Be careful diving here as it is near the end of the peninsula and can suffer from large changes in wave action in a short period of time.
