We love scuba diving in La Jolla. As your personal scuba guide, it’s our goal to show you how beautiful our San Diego waters are. From scuba diving the gorgeous kelp forests at La Jolla Cove to the canyon wall at La Jolla Shores, the La Jolla Ecological Reserve has it all – beautiful, diverse marine life and the chance of seeing something amazing.
Beyond the unique events that bring leopard sharks, gray whales, market squid and grunions coming back year after year, the nutrient rich water from the La Jolla underwater canyon is always full of surprises. We’ve seen green turtles, sevengill sharks, giant black sea bass, toupe sharks and even dolphin!
All our scuba dive tours require a scuba certification and we meet at dive location.
La Jolla Shores & La Jolla Cove: Shore Dives
Join us for our most popular scuba experience! Spend the morning shore diving with us as we guide you on a 2-tank scuba dive to show you the best of both ecosystems in La Jolla – La Jolla Shores (an underwater canyon), and La Jolla Cove (our famous kelp forest).
Beginning at 8am, we’ll start at La Jolla’s most popular and protected shore dive, the Shores. We’ll kick out over the sandy flats until we reach the canyon, where a variety of invertebrate and fish life awaits. Click here for more information about the La Jolla Shores.
After our first dive, we will drive you and your gear a short distance to the La Jolla Cove for our second scuba dive in the kelp forest. If you have never experienced a true kelp forest underwater, the Cove is a must. We’ll navigate through the breath-taking underwater forest while keeping our eyes out for all sorts of life: dozens of fish, harmless sharks, and even sea lions! We’ll conclude our dive and leisurely return to the beach enjoying the beautiful views of La Jolla. Click here for more information about the La Jolla Cove.
