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.

Customer Reviews

It was a fun, new thing to try! They definitely just bring you out there and let you go for it, so you need to be a strong swimmer but it was fun!

It was a great exsperience

I took the spear fishing tour and it was wonderful! Eddie was an excellent, and very knowledgeable, guide. There weren't many fish out, so nobody in our group caught anything, but the water was calm and the visibility was great, and that more than made up for it. Eddie helped me work on equalizing and ways to spot fish. He caught a shovel nose shark with his bare hands which was pretty cool! We were in the water for over an hour, which was more than enough time to get used to shooting the spear and see a lot of marine life. Overall, I think it was a great experience and would definitely recommend it to others!
