    Somebody posted in a FB group that JAN 1st Lobo will be $20 a diver. Jeez two divers, plus a car fee, plus kayak fee... Plus reservation fee? Not sure, I been have charged different amounts at different times, with different explanations... This is not a cheap date anymore. Supply and demand I guess, maybe they will finally take credit cards.

    I was told they are installing a new "CA Parks approved" payment system to replace PayPal that they once accepted. Maybe they are trying to recoup costs?

    Yes, I stopped by the kiosk this last weekend and was told $20 per diver as of 1/1/15 so if you car pool with no boat/kayak it's $50 for a team of two to dive Lobos. Monastery is still free :D

    I heard all the park fees are going up. The reason was "they haven't gone up in awhile".

    There is no separate reservation fee. The 'reservation fee' is paying the divers (both) fees upfront. At least that is what is going on currently. Can't say I'm happy with a 100% increase in the diver's fee. Anyone know if the parking fee is going up? If the park really needs more money, increasing the parking fee by $1/car will bring in a lot more than doubling the diver's fee.

    Seems more of a anti "I'll reserve it and then see if I want it" tactic to me.

    You would think at this time on November, this info should be readily available on the Point Lobos web site.

    $20 per diver? What a bunch of bull$hit! I'm going to start researching formal methods of appeal/protest.
