What you'll do

La Jolla arguably has the best spots in San Diego for most all underwater activities. Also, it usually has vast numbers of seals and sea lions. We will be visiting both La Jolla Cove which has lots of sea lions and Shell Beach/Seal Rock which if you can guess by the name is where the Harbor seals like to hang out. We will begin with a brief safety check and basic how to use a snorkel reminder. Our first stop will be in La Jolla Cove which is marine protected zone with lots of sea life. There we will explore the area, including the caves (if the swell permits), for about an hour. After the cove we will make our second and final stop at Seal Rock, which is just a short walk north form La Jolla Cove. Here, we will have the opportunity to find and snorkel with curious Harbor seals. Our time in the water there will be around 30 minutes. ***Friendly reminder that we might not encounter any wildlife. Like everything in nature, animals can be unpredictable! That's a chance we always take on these excursions. Tours are kept small with 4 person max. IMPORTANT: This is the open-ocean and there will be waves and currents, which can be overwhelming for beginner swimmers/snorkelers

Travis

Hey there! I'm Travis, an avid snorkeler and free diver, with over ten years of experience exploring what's beneath the waves. Over my years living in wonderful San Diego I've noticed that both tourists and locals alike don't realize how awesome the marine life here can be. One of my favorite things to do is experience both seals and sea lions in their natural habitats and what a better way to do that than to jump right in the water! I love sharing my joy for the ocean with others, so that's why I'm here on AirBnb!
