Monterey Conditions

Are conditions good, or bad?  These are the websites I use when I'm planning a dive trip.


Entire Area

Monterey Bay

(Monterey State Beach, San Carlos Beach, McAbee Beach, Lovers Point, Coral Street)

Carmel Area

(Stillwater Cove, Monastery Beach, Point Lobos)


Coming soon: How to read each site and compare the sites for each area.

NOAA predictions use UTC; subtract 8 hours (or 7 hours if daylight saving time) to get local time.  This has the effect of shifting the data left (or the time axis right).  For example, if NWPS shows a peak swell in Monterey bay at 11 pm, it's actually at 3 pm or 4 pm.  That makes sense, because wind wave are highest in the afternoon.

Let me know if you have a favorite site that's not listed here!
