About Scuba Diving in La Jolla:

We do most of our scuba instruction at the beautiful La Jolla Shores and La Jolla Cove. The La Jolla Ecological Reserve is home to the La Jolla Canyon – a deep water fissure responsible for the huge amount of marine life in the region.  The cove-like coastline and gentle topography of La Jolla Shores create very gentle wave breaks and easy entries, giving divers the chance to be a part of this underwater world and all the wonders it has to offer. Click here to learn more about diving in La Jolla
