La Jolla Shores
La Jolla Shores is located in beautiful La Jolla, California. This beach is a popular destination for tourists, surfers and divers. Two main features of this beach make it one of the most frequented dive locations in San Diego. The facilities, generally good conditions and relatively easy surf entries make the shores a good spot for diver training. For advanced divers, there is easy access to La Jolla Submarine
Canyon. Submarine Canyon begins nearly 100 yards offshore, starting at about 50 feet and continuing in a series of ledges down to 800+ feet. The main drop off into Submarine Canyon contains most of the sea life, including but not limited too, small fish, lobster, octopus and anemone. On your way to the canyon, you should find numerous leopard sharks, turbot, sea stars, sting rays, surf perch, sand dollars, stone crab, halibut and bat ray. Also at La Jolla Shores is Kellogg Park, a grassy park that provides ample space to conduct dive briefings and surface intervals. La Jolla Shores is a beach, so a beach entry/ exit are required. The waves are usually mild here, which makes for easy access. A restroom and showers are nearby for added convenience. Let our experienced staff guide you along the sand flats and into the depths of Submarine Canyon for an experience you won't soon forget. La Jolla Shores is a great dive location for any skill level.
La Jolla Cove
La Jolla Cove is a very small beach, tucked between adjacent sandstone cliffs. Due to its extraordinary beauty, La Jolla Cove is one of the most photographed beaches in Southern California. Visibility at the Cove can sometimes exceed 30 feet, making it a must see for SCUBA divers and snorkelers. "When the visibility is good here, its like swimming in an aquarium". "Simply amazing". La Jolla Cove lies within the San Diego/ La Jolla Underwater Park Ecological Reserve, which helps to ensure that marine life is abundant and plentiful. The average depth is 15 - 30 feet and can get deeper as you travel towards the outer cove. Seals and Sea Lions are very common around this area and are known to play with the divers and maybe give a tug to your fins. Close encounters with these playful creatures are not only amazing but also a great photo opportunity. Come join us for the day and experience the amazing beauty of this underwater haven. Public restroom buildings with showers are available for your convenience. This is a look but don’t touch area and the possession of game is unlawful.
La Jolla Kelp Forest
The La Jolla kelp Beds are about a 300 yard swim from La Jolla Cove. Visibility averages 15 - 20 feet. It can be surgy and the color on the reef is limited. The best rock piles are in 40 - 60 feet of water. The average depth is 30 - 60 feet in the area. Much of the La Jolla Kelp forest is flat rock bottom and currents are rarely a problem. The only risk is thick kelp. Experience with kelp here is a plus, if tangled up slowly back out the way you came. It is suggested that you bring a knife with you on any kelp forest diving to allow you to free yourself should you become entangled. Depending on the season, current climate mode and storms, this forest can reach over two miles in length and a mile wide. To get to the kelp forest by shore, it requires a nice swim, about 300 yards, but absolutely worth every second you spend getting there. Let S.E.Adventures guide you on an unforgettable experience to the La Jolla Kelp Forest and experience this amazing underwater ecosystem.
The Marine Room
The Marine Room is a common location for divers and snorkelers in the La Jolla area. It is best known as a good place to see leopard sharks in the early summer months. The Marine Room has really neat shallow reef diving, and conditions similiar to La Jolla Shores area-relatively small waves, good visibility and less surge. Divers also use this location as an entry point to the La Jolla Submarine Canyon. Parking in the area is limited, so it is often desirable to arrive early in the morning. There are no public restrooms, showers or lifeguard services at the Marine Room. The beach at the marine Room is named after the World-Class restaurant that was built on its shore. The building was originally built in 1916 as a small inn and restaurant called the Spindrift Inn. The Inn was removed as part of a renovation and the site was reopened as the Marine Room on May 29, 1941.
