Scuba Diving in San Francisco
Set on San Francisco Bay, the Golden Gate City offers a number of marine attractions, including whale watching and scuba diving. Although the waters of the central California coast present a very different environment from the clear, warm seas of the Caribbean and instead are cold and often murky, underwater thrills are still plentiful.
You may have wondered about the diving near San Francisco itself. Well, perhaps it would best be called challenging. There is probably 70 miles of diveable shoreline along the ocean side of the San Francisco Peninsula between San Francisco and Santa Cruz. The scenery along that drive is absolutely gorgeous. The diving is probably some of the most difficult in the world. It is rough, cold, sharky and visibility is no more than six feet on a good day. I love it. It used to be good for abalone diving, but now there is no legal abalone diving south of San Francisco. For the first hundred miles north of San Francisco the diving is similar to the diving south and probably should be left to the locals. Beyond that if the beautiful diving of the North Coast.
