What you'll do
La Jolla is one of the most popular & breath taking beaches in San Diego. Noted by a series of caves created by the Pacific Ocean, where we can observe seals, sea lions, turtles, leopard sharks & an abundance of fish. Sharks, turtles, water visibility & conditions vary each day. Mother Ocean can be VERY unpredictable. Sea lions AKA " the dogs of the sea" are behaviorally pretty social & may swim/play around kayakers & snorkelers along the reefs. After a brief safety & snorkel etiquette talk, we will explore the area. I will point out local animal species & provide detailed information about them. Respect for all creatures is necessary, as we are in their "house" not ours. The San Diego-La Jolla Underwater Park & Ecological Reserve spans about 6,000 acres of ocean bottom & tidelands, from Scripps Park at La Jolla Cove, north across La Jolla Shores to the end of Torrey Pines State Reserve. As a “look-but-don’t-touch” ecological refuge, the park is an ecological haven & has become a popular destination for snorkelers, scuba divers and kayakers. *** More details listed under "Guest Requirements". ***

I am a San Diego native, yogi & marine science nerd. I have led countless kayaking, snorkeling & diving adventures all around San Diego. If I'm not in the ocean surfing, diving or snorkeling I'm near it weather it be exploring hidden sea caves, seeking tide pools, lobster hoop netting or educating myself all about it. I love sharing unique experiences with those who have similar adventurous souls. Not many know about all of the hidden & amazing marine life San Diego has to offer. There's nothing like having a local be your guide in this beautiful paradise I call home.
