Boots, hoods, and a snug wetsuit keep divers protected from the cool water. Throughout the 60- to 80-minute dive, guides offer training and tips for grabbing the lobsters.

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.

Great experience with Kat. Just keep in mind your only in the water 1.5 hours not 2 and almost out entire group beside me and another guy were able to deal with the waves. Regardless, if your a good swimmer you will enjoy yourself.
