Be green on the greenest day of the year, St. Patricks day!  Come join us to help combat trash both in and out of the ocean.  This beach is one of the dirtiest beaches in the Monterey Bay area so there should be plenty of unique "treasure" to be discovered.  This event will count towards earning your PADI AWARE specialty, which also counts towards the Master Diver certification.  All are welcome, non divers can participate topside and earn a certificate of participation!  If you are interested, please contact Chris or Ginny at Any Water Sports!

Blue Guru conducted its 2nd season of the Whale Shark Program in 2011. We very much hoped to repeat our success from 2010 of spotting a previously unrecorded whale shark. Last year we snorkeled twice with a 5-6m whale shark at Richelieu Rock. The 7 participants of the program recorded data & took photographs, which were submitted to Project AWARE's Whale Shark Project database, run in conjunction with the Shark Trust, and Ecocean's photo library. It was the first time this particular shark had been recorded in either database. How exciting!
