Dive Club

Any Water Dive Center is also partnered with Monterey Bay’s largest active dive club - Underwater Voyagers. What started as a group of friends meeting after work a few nights a week back in 2016, has turned into a vibrant dive club comprised of over 400 members! In many ways, it is still the same group of friends who started this in 2016, there are just so many more friends to dive with now.

Underwater Voyagers runs weekly night dives, and weekend day dives. The weekly night dives alternate between Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday nights. The weekend dives alternate between Saturday and Sunday. You can see our published dive schedule below. Please note that all dives are subject to conditions - and therefore might be canceled or re-scheduled accordingly. Underwater Voyagers is open to all divers of all abilities and experience. From fresh out of open water, to instructors with years of experience, everyone is welcome!

September Club Updates

This month we are excited to annouce that our Speciality of the Month will be Dive Propulsion Vehicles (DPVs) also known as underwater scooters! We will be hosting this Speciality on September 18th AND 19th. It is a one day, 2 dive course. We can only accomodate up to 4 divers each day - on a first come first serve basis. If you are interested, we suggest emailing or calling as soon as possible to reserve your spot. We are offering over 25% off the course for club members with tuition, bookwork, PADI certification processing fee and DPV rental. For club pricing or questions, please give us a call. 

We will also be running another Kelp Forest Restoration course this month on September 18th. We have had lots of interest in this course and want to get all the folks who are interested in this project involved.

Friday (9/17) 7:30pm-9:00pm & Saturday (9/18) 7:00am-2:00pm

This PADI Specialty is designed to familiarize divers with the skills, knowledge and procedures to restore kelp forests. Currently, this specialty is specific to a site that is part of a Reef Check California program to understand kelp forest dynamics and restoration feasibility. As part of this program, Reef Check is working to train divers to help the program grow and develop.

In this course, you will develop knowledge of urchin anatomy and behavior kelp dynamics, safe diving in urchin barrens and kelp forests and basic urchin culling methods. This course is comprised of a knowledge development section (done the night before) followed by 2 dives the next day. Included in the cost of the course is the use of diver propulsion vehicles (underwater scooters!), by the instructors, to help tow students out to the dive site, as it is a lengthy swim from shore. 

For course tuition, please give us a call. Other materials that you are required to have for this course include:

  • a CA fishing license;
  • a welding/slag hammer;
  • underwater slate;
  • and a cutting utensil (knife, shears or line cutter)
