Water Sports in San Diego: Frequently Asked Questions

Whether you're looking to go jet skiing in San Diego or do something a little more chilled out, there are plenty of fantastic water activities along the California coast for you and your family to enjoy. Find our answers to your most commonly asked questions. If you're not sure how to use your coupon, or need any other information, the Groupon Manual will help you out.

How much does it cost to rent a boat in San Diego?

Renting a boat is a hugely popular water activity in San Diego – and you can expect to pay anywhere from $200 to over $1,000 for the privilege.

Read More

The key factors that will affect the cost of renting a boat include the:

  • Size of the boat
  • Length of your rental
  • Type of boat

Large party yachts like Chere Amie Yacht Charters will typically cost the most. You can also try small private boats or eye-catching patriotic jet boats, which may cost less.

Where can I get kayak rentals in San Diego?

Kayak rentals in San Diego are easy to find thanks to the huge popularity of the activity and the easy access to the ocean. There are plenty of kayak rental kiosks for you to choose from.

Read More

Some popular kayak rentals include:

  • Everyday California at 2261 Avenida De La Playa, La Jolla – go kayaking, surfing, or snorkeling under the watchful gaze of this team of water experts.
  • Fly Guys Watersports at 1450 Harbor Island Drive – choose from a kayak or paddleboard for a three-hour stint on the ocean.

How much does it cost to go shark diving in San Diego?

Shark diving in San Diego can cost up to $300 per person. The Californian coast is a popular spot for sharks, so you'll find plenty of cage diving experiences in San Diego and the surrounding areas.

Read More

The warm oceans mean water visibility averages 40'–100' and water temperatures range from the high 70s to mid-60s depending on the season. You'll have the chance to see mako, blue, hammerhead, and great white sharks depending on the time of year.

Are there sharks in La Jolla?

The most common type of sharks around La Jolla Cove are leopard sharks. Leopard sharks are typically harmless and are easily noted by the leopard print pattern on their backs.

Read More

Because leopard sharks don't have a history of attacking humans, you shouldn't need a shark diving cage to get in the water with them. Instead you can generally go scuba diving in San Diego to get up close and personal with these beautiful creatures. There are sharks in other parts of the San Diego coastline, where you can go shark cage diving if you're brave enough.
