Beginning January 1st, divers who wish to make a reservation to dive at Point Lobos will pay $40 per two-person team, in addition to parking fees, which is $10 per day. For divers who choose to drop-by without a reservation, the fee will be $20 per two-person team ($10 each) each on a space-available basis.

Single divers are not allowed to dive here – each team must consist of at least 2 divers. A team of 3 is permitted, with the regular $20/diver fee. It’s also important to note that the diver who made the reservation online must be present with their buddy at the time of check-in.
