Contact: Tino Bernazzani
Monterey, California USA

The Monterey Bay Tritons is a group designed to cater to all generations of spearfishermen (spearos), from the newest diver, to the old hand looking to spread their wealth of knowledge. The Tritons are a group dedicated to furthering the knowledge of all divers, providing a friendly environment for all to dive in, as well as the conservation of all of our species and our hunting environment. We have an active membership with participants coming from Fresno to Sacramento to be a part of our events.  Our quarterly meetings coincide with a dive day set anywhere from Monterey County all the way to Mendocino County.  


Sand Eaters

Contact: Craig Gelpi/Steve Herbert
Los Angeles/Orange County, Southern California USA

This loose-knit organization, which has been around since 1995, is a virtual dive group that plans a dive somewhere in Southern California every week.

Throughout the year, the Sand Eaters visit dozens of sites along the Southern California coast from Santa Barbara in the north to La Jolla in the south and, about once or twice a year, visit the Avalon Underwater Park on Catalina. Usually the dives are scheduled at 8 a.m. Sunday, but about once a month the group schedules a Saturday night beach dive.

The organization is designed for minimal maintenance from members. With widespread access to e-mail, virtually all scheduling is now conducted over the Internet.

From the beginning, the Sand Eaters┐ sole purpose has been to help divers go diving. In addition to scheduling its weekly beach dives, members are heavily involved with local dive-related organizations including Los Angeles Underwater Hockey and the Greater Los Angeles Council of Divers.

Sand Eaters don┐t hold meetings other than the dives and the group has neither membership dues nor officers, thereby eliminating the political infighting that sometimes plagues more structured organizations.

The group does not have the resources to provide beach diving instruction nor does it provide dive masters to supervise dives. Longtime Sand Eaters are glad to offer some tips on making a beach dive at a specific location but divers who plan to join the group should already be proficient beach divers.

Fortunately, the Sand Eaters are geared toward the average diver rather than the ┐former Navy SEAL┐ type. Most sites require only minimal hiking and allow relatively easy beach entries and exits. The group places the utmost emphasis on safety, encouraging divers to call a dive if they are not comfortable with the conditions and to always dive within their limitations.
