The snorkeling in La Jolla is some of the best in all of California. If you’re vacationing in San Diego or just in town for the weekend, La Jolla snorkeling is an amazing activity for ocean-lovers and families alike.

Whether you snorkel with the leopard sharks of La Jolla Shores or the caves and sea lions of La Jolla Cove, a guided snorkel tour is a great way to see our San Diego oceans.

Scuba Training

SD Expeditions offers La Jolla scuba classes, but we offer you more than just a certification.

We believe scuba lessons should be greater than a set of skills and a certification test – your scuba certification is your first step to enjoying all the wonders of our underwater world.
