Gliding over a sea floor dotted with flower- and mushroom-like anemones, a diver feels a faint tug pull her backward. She turns and sees a harbor seal gently nibbling on one of her fins—a sort of handshake sometimes extended by the playful creatures. To bring guests up close to the friendly wildlife frolicking along the kelp forests, sandstone cliffs, and underwater canyons of the La Jolla coast, the divemasters of Pacific Beach Sports lead frequent shore dives and snorkeling tours. They hold certifications from the Professional Association of Diving Instructors, ensuring everyone’s comfort and safety.
To prep aquanauts for diving here or anywhere else around the world, the divemasters host scuba courses that earn PADI certifications, from basic open-water certifications to specialty certificates such as one for wreck diving and one for cleaning the drains at the bottoms of hotel hot tubs. In addition to scuba diving and snorkeling, Pacific's crew has fun above water with standup-paddleboard lessons, tours, and rentals. They even introduce pupils to SUP yoga, in which poses are more challenging to hold because of the continual undulation of the waves.
