Overview of Sewer Plant Beach

Sewer Plant Beach

California North
USA West


This site is as close to Gorilla diving as you get in Monterey. Rocky entry, ocean currents, kelp beds, surf and breakers are your obstacles. Do not dive unless you have ideal conditions. Double check your dive plan with a local dive shop or guide. Once you've navigated the gauntlet, you'll be rewarded with nudibranches, starfish, anemones, and a variety of fish life.

Directions: In Monterey, heading West on Del Monte, bear right onto Lighthouse Ave, then bear right onto Foam St. Make a right onto David Ave, then a left onto Ocean View Blvd. Continue past Lover's Point Park, and about 1 mile beyond, past Asilomar Blvd, you'll see the water treatment plant on your left and the beach on your right.

01/19/2005 Brian Xavier (Avg: 3.79 Review) - I dove this site a few days ago and what a great dive I had. The tide was high and the swell low, so it was the best time for diving this site. Didn't see as many fish as I usually do here, but the rock formations and plant life were excellent. You might want to take a tube if diving alone; the swell can get big and change fast here. The best thing about this site is are the rock formations and big drop-offs, and the water can be very clear, with horizontal vis. to 50 feet. Overall, a great dive but be cautious and pick a nice day.

Entry at Sewer Plant Beach 

A sandy entry greets you, with the requisite underwater rock hazards. By the way, don't let the name of the site scare you away. We just call it that to scare non-divers away. :-)
