Famously gorgeous and ethereal, the underwater habitat of La Jolla Cove is a well-known destination for visitors who wish to delve into the mysteries of San Diego’s marine environment. As such, there are a number of tour providers in the area who specialize in giving underwater tours, particularly with La Jolla Cove snorkeling.
What You Can Expect from This Tour
Fun for visitors of all ages who want to experience La Jolla Cove’s rich submarine life without learning how to scuba dive, the La Jolla cove snorkeling tours offered here are pleasant and informative. Most snorkeling tour charters have different package options that allow visitors to take advantage of animal migration patterns and other seasonal occurrences, and will take you to areas that will have clearer underwater visibility during your La Jolla Cove tour.
Bike and Kayak Tours offers a “Swim with the Sharks” package during March through October that takes snorkelers ages eight and up on a fifty-minute long snorkeling expedition that gives them a chance to see the harmless migratory Leopard Shark up-close and personal. Other tour services will take you on a general tour of the cove’s brilliant ecosystem for as long as two hours, guiding you past otherworldly marine gardens, striking underwater rock formations, and a variety of creatures you might only have seen in pictures, from sea cucumbers and anemones to garibaldi and sea stars.
Oftentimes, these tour guide charters and their packages will provide you with fins, a mask, and a snorkel that you can then rent for the rest of the day, particularly if you want to continue exploring the area at your own pace. La Jolla’s Ecological Reserve is another famous spot for La Jolla snorkeling. Prices are usually around $50.00 for a two-hour tour.
The best time to embark on a snorkeling adventure in La Jolla Cove is during the summer to late-summer months, when the water is at its warmest. However, beware of foggy conditions during the morning hours to midday hours, as they can obscure the sunlight and make it harder to see during your snorkeling tour, in addition to making the water colder.
