Experienced guides equip patrons with all of the equipment necessary to swim with sharks and explore the La Jolla shoreline's crystalline depths. Groups of 5 or 10 descend on leopard sharks' favorite spots, or instructors help participants to spear fresh fish. Tours are held three times a day, and those who opt for the spearfishing tour must get a fishing license (an additional $15 fee per person).
La Jolla Water Sports
At La Jolla Water Sports, guides undergo extensive training before captaining snorkeling excursions into the calm, crystalline waters of the Pacific. The experts escort 6 to 12 patrons at a time on shark tours of the shallow, sandy flats where small-mouthed leopard sharks up to 5 feet long lounge on their easy chairs of sand. Snorkeling tours of the La Jolla cove grant participants, including beginners and kids, a siren's-eye view of rock formations, underwater flora, and marina critters including garibaldi fish, sea cucumbers, anemones, and starfish. The most action-packed of La Jolla Water Sports's offerings are the spearfishing tours in which leaders expound on the importance of safety and proper form as customers skewer fish before schlepping them home for dinner or as treats for pet grizzly bears.
