The Monterey Bay Sanctuary, an exciting recreation on California's lovely Central Coast, is one of the best in Nor cal. We dove there last month. The Monterey Bay National Marine Sanctuary's waters are full of beneficial nutrients being a Federally protected marine area. That's why the sanctuary is home to a dazzling array of marine creatures that we could see during our 50 mins dive. Summer water temp was in high 60s and we were comfortable in our short suit. We saw many protected dive sites along the Monterey Peninsula but our most fav was the Lover's point and 3 sisters.
