Schedule a group dinner or camping night after because you are most likely going to finish up with a lot of tasty abalone

Abalone diving at Salt Point is fantastic. The professionals at Sonoma Coast Divers are amazing and will make sure you have a great time.

Sonoma Coast Divers is the best dive shop around. Abalone diving at Salt Point is so much fun!

Cold, but worth every story after the fact. There is something intrinsically satisfying about going through so much effort to catch your dinner--what a great way to experience the northern coast.
