San Carlos State Beach is a small beach in Monterey, located between Cannery Row and Fisherman's Wharf, near the Coast Guard station and breakwater. It's a very popular place for scuba diving, and many scuba classes are held there every weekend. It's well suited to teaching new divers due to its shallow nature and clear sandy bottom out to 25 feet. Ample marine life exists in the area to allow divers to experience the underwater coastal environment that California has to offer. There is often plenty of parking for a daily fee, but arrive early to get a spot close to the grassy area and avoid hauling your gear long distances.
The 727-acre Lower Bear River Reservoir is a few miles off Highway 88 and 40 miles east of Jackson. Fishing, water skiing, and boating are all popular at Lower Bear River Reservoir. The lake is easy to access for day outings or overnight stays. At 5,800 feet, the reservoir is free of snow before any of the other major lakes higher on Carson Pass.
Fisheye Scuba has a state of the art classroom facility where our instructors will teach you the knowledge you need to complete your course and have a great time doing it. Our classroom contains a high definition projection system with surround sound to make the most of PADI multimedia presentations and videos.
Folsom Lake is California's 9th largest reservoir located next to the City of Folsom. It was formed in 1955 with the construction of Folsom Dam on the American River. The lake area includes the Folsom Lake State Recreation Area, a popular area used for fishing, boating and camping. Fisheye Scuba frequently uses the lake for training students during the open water portion of dive training classes. Dive sites vary throughout the year and dive instructors provide students with driving directions and other logistical information prior to class dates.
