Snorkeling in San Diego
SEA DOWN UNDER!
Grab your snorkel mask and fins and discover San Diego’s beauty that extends below the ocean’s surface. A deep underwater canyon off the coast allows for increased diversity, with everything from lobsters, colorful starfish, crabs, rays, perch, sardines, sea lions, seals and dolphins.
La Jolla Cove is a swimming, snorkeling and diving paradise. Calm and clear waters, bright orange fish, green sea grass beds, and dozens of other marine critters make it ideal for snorkeling. For a real treat, get your mask and snorkel and head to La Jolla Shores. On some days, you can see hundreds of leopard sharks just south of the boat launch – don’t worry, they’re harmless!
Less than 20 feet from shore, a delightful undersea world unfolds. The undersea plant life is spectacular with green sea grasses flowing softly with the currents, anemones silently waiting for a meal, and majestic kelp beds looking like tall undersea forests. Go snorkeling and explore this hidden world!
