Dive Tours

The Monterey Bay Sanctuary attracts thousands of divers from around the world, lured by the unique beauty of the kelp forest and underwater canyon.  

Our tour guides will show you the beauty of the Monterey Bay area, and a guided tour is a great way to gain some more experience, get back in the water after some time away, or learn about local dive sites and conditions!  Our guides will take you to the best shore diving sites based on the weather & swell condition and your experience.  

Expect a 2-tank tour to take a around four hours, while a 1-tank dive tour is closer to three hours. We offer both regular an private guided tours, and private guided tours. For a regular tour group, you might be diving with strangers (soon to be new friends), while with a private guided tour, it is just you (or your group) with your guide.  You must be a certified diver to participate.
