What are the snorkeling tours like?
Our snorkel adventures take place in the La Jolla Cove area of the protected marine reserve. Our snorkeling tours enter the ocean from a small beach at the base of the stunning sea cliffs. Our groups leaders then take participants snorkeling along the beautiful ocean cliffs.
Everyone will get a fantastic opportunity to explore throughout the ecological reserve. This is where the sea lions love to swim and play. Often the these beautiful creatures will jump in the water and swim with participants. The babies are especially curious. Further along the stunning cliffs everyone will get a chance to snorkel along the famous Seven Sea Caves.
What type of critters will we see?
San Diego has an incredible variety of marine life. Huge schools of fish, green turtles and seals make their home around La Jolla Cove. The cliffs lead the way to the stunning ocean caves of La Jolla. On calm days our snorkeling groups even explore one of these giant caves! La Jolla’s seasonal migrations can bring a variety of sharks, jellyfish and even dolphins. Gray and blue whales can often been seen breaching close to the San Diego shoreline.
What time of year is best to snorkel in San Diego?
We offer snorkeling tours all year round. Wetsuits are always provided, with thicker wetsuits offered during the cooler winter months.
Leopard Sharks Experience
How often will you get the chance to swim with sharks? Take this opportunity during your Southern California vacation and try snorkeling with the gorgeous leopard sharks. These incredible creatures are very docile. The sharks are usually found very close to the water’s edge. There is quite a bit of shallow water in the area. This activity is great for the whole family.
Our activities take place in the La Jolla ecological reserve and available by reservation every day. Sharing the ocean with these beautiful creatures is the highlight of many family trips.
