Evaluation

*Average:    3.12
Went to Monterey/Breakwater on 6/27, seemed to be a typical 'spring/summer' dive. Visibility was maybe 8 feet at the bottom, 3 feet in the water column on the way down. Swell was minimal, but the beach was absolutely packed with checkout classes. Water was 57 @ the top and 55 @ 30-40 ft. Weather was incredible so with a 7 mil suit and 5 mil hoodie, it was extremely comfortable. This is an easy dive to 'get your gills wet' after not diving for a while, or just an easy dive if you are looking for a quick one. It's very hit or miss at Breakwater, but it's always a good standby.
