aww come on ... the glenmore resevoir must be a good place ... how about the bow or elbow river?
They shoot you if you even step into the Glenmore, and diving 48" of fast-moving, freezing water is somehow just not as appealing as Quadra Island in August. :P

i just got my certification last year with a friend for my 15th birthday. and i love it. i live right near monteray and even if its freezing you see the most amazing things. the harbor seals get a little to playful at times though. really, monteray and carmel are places you really should check out

NFG- I figured there was more than just a few around you. The east coast is littered with wrecks. A great place to see lots of interesting sea life.

That and the state has a program to create an artificial reef along the state....they sink donated vessels for the reef program....sink something...give it 5-7 years...and it becomes a GREAT place to dive.


Here is a good article on the wreck dives off the coast...tells a bit about them each:

And here's one about the one of the shark dives off our coast:

I dive as often as I can. Dive in Monterey, Carmel, Mendocino area. NFG, have you dove any of those wrecks? I would love to make a trip to the east coast to check it out one of these days.

Not yet....I don't have my certification yet, but summer is very long here and each month I have two 3-day breaks from work as well as one 7-day break.....lots of time for dive charters.
