Presentation: The Underwater World of Point Lobos

Wetlands Watch Times Publishing Group Inc tpgonlinedaily.comPlease join us when Jerry Loomis, retired park ranger and state park diver, leads us on an underwater adventure to learn about a part of Point Lobos seldom seen by park visitors.

Jerry created this presentation because of a question often asked of divers as they exit the water in Whalers Cove: “What did you see down there”? The curiosity of visitors to know what exists in the world below the water urged him to start taking underwater photos and share what Jerry feels is the most amazing dive spot in the world.

Jerry Loomis was a ranger, diver, and docent coordinator at Point Lobos for 22 years beginning in 1980. He is currently a Docent at Point Lobos and the Point Lobos Summer Adventures program which he started five summers ago as a retired ranger turned Interpreter. The highlight of his career was acting as the Point Lobos Docent Coordinator, seconded by his job as a State Park Diver in the underwater portion of Point Lobos.

This talk is from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. in the Fitz Wetlands Educational Resource Center. Admission is free but you must reserve a seat online at For information, email
