At San Diego Excellent Adventures, guides chaperone explorers through scenic La Jolla waters on tours that skim the water or probe its depths, embarking daily April through October. Aquatic pilgrims delve into the depths of La Jolla Cove during snorkeling tours, cavorting with a 600-pound sea bass and playful seals that will teach you their language if you can guess their secret password.

Complimentary drinks and snacks nourish waterbound patrons, and each excursion comes with a full-body set of rental gear complete with snorkels, fins, a 7mm wetsuit, and a mask. Alternatively, standup paddleboarders propel long, buoyant surfboards with single-blade paddles. Patrons stabilize their sea legs in the calm waters of Mission Bay, then graduate to the more rambunctious swells of the open ocean or the graduate-level choppiness of a still-blending smoothie.

San Diego Excellent Adventures

Disguised in wetsuits, flippers, and diving masks, humans almost seem indistinguishable from the scores of aquatic life that thrive among the San Diego coastline. In the water, curious sea lions tug playfully at divers' fins, and thick stalks of kelp wave like Queen Elizabeth telling the gathered crowd to go home already. With access to five separate sites in which to see such wonders, the guides at San Diego Excellent Adventures tailor their adventures—whether snorkeling, diving, or paddling—around the experience level of each tour group, ensuring an easy assimilation to undersea life.

During guided dives along La Jolla Shores, swimmers peer in on frolicking creatures such as lobsters, octopuses, and leopard sharks, and standup paddleboards grant access to Mission Bay's shoreline views previously seen only by terribly lost Venetian gondoliers. Currently the largest manmade bay in the country, Mission is known for its calm waters suited to beginners just learning to explore the ocean.
