Metered Parking Daily Lot
The metered parking area is adjacent to the dock. The meters require quarters and have a five hour limit. Dive trips are usually just short of five hours. If you park in the metered lot, there is some risk that your meter will run out prior to your return. The daily lot is located between the metered lot and the main street. Daily parking is $5. The lot is unattended at our normal departure time. Payment must be made through a relatively small slot. It does not work well to try to put quarters through the slot and change is not available.
Scheduled trips are $80 per person for a 2 tank dive in Monterey or Carmel. Full payment is required to confirm booking. Pricing is available on request for specialty trips such as underwater guides, instruction, private groups, extended trips, etc. Book a dive today with Advanced Diving Technologies!
