6 We arrived in Carmel late in the day so we tried to hurry to the dive site before dark! It was about 5:30pm when we arrived. It was tucked back in a beautiful Carmel neighborhood. Parking was easy and there were convenient stairs to access the beach. The kelp was near the shore…so no big swim!! But the waves are crashing pretty hard against the rocks so you need to be careful how you navigate. Conditions changes as we were diving and toward the end it was like being in a washing machine! Depths were only about 25-30 feet and the water temp was about 55 degrees. When we exited…waves were much bigger! Overall a very fun dive but you need to be ready for anything.
