We saw a little shark and a lobster and the water was amazing. The guide was also very nice and knew a lot about the area.

Excellent adventure
, Aug 2022
This was our families first time snorkeling and it was a wonderful experience. We got to have deals and sea lions swimming with us. The company we used was very good. The only thing I would change is as first timers I wish we would have had more time to adjust to using the snorkel. Otherwise it was beautiful and exciting
Shady business
, Aug 2022
I was have schedule tour for 10:30. They called me at 9:00 and they told me to come 1:30. When I show up there I assign paperwork for me and my daughter gentleman asked me if I have a wet suits I told him that I don't have any and my understanding is that they will provide All necessary gear and that's what's including in a price. He told me that vet suit. It's not including in the price and if I want some it's a $15 a rental for each which I declined because water was warm and I was surfing day before and I was not using vet suit. He told me that he will not allow me to go snorkeling without wet suit. So I asked him if I can get a refund. He told me no. So basically if I don't rent out vet t suit I be not able to go to snorkeling tour and I can lose my money. Maybe they'll be honest and say the price for a snorkeling tour is $80 instead of being a shady and advertise for a 65 but they don't want to tell you that they will force you to rent out vet suit. I must say that the tour guide was awesome. His name is Kellen everything else is really shady and all vet suit are completely ripped try to find someone else who is More honest or rent out gear and go by self. Anyone have any question ? You can send me email

The day was overcast and the visibility was minimal. The guide Max was the hero when my snorkel didn’t work properly… he lent me the one he was going to use. Even so it was nice bobbing the cove and the wet suit i wore was comfortable. There were sea lions all over and cormorants and pelicans.

Changed time last minute and did not give me a refund. Horribel customer service.. these people are complete fraud
Worst experience place
, Jul 2022
First thing when I went in was nice and new everything but…. The clothes that we need to wear was ripped off little bad shape. Our structure was nice, and then when we sit in the van all the chair was ripped off super ugly and disgusting. Finally we came at the beach there was too much wave cannot go in to the ocean it was freaked me out. And then they told all of us we need to go back saying sorry. But some of the Crewmembers are they don’t want to waste their money so they want to go in but three of us we sit in the beach until they come back. But for the safety they should have life jacket so there was no life jacket at all so I had to sit wait (there was 3 of us) until when they come back for 2 hours. Wasting my money wasting my time. So I would never Recommend this place at all.

We had so much fun and our tour guide, Brian, was wonderful! He taught our 15 year old to deep dive, she loves it! We saw plenty of fish and even swam with sea lions and a giant sea turtle! The wet suits kept us warm and buoyant so we weren’t too cold or tired to enjoy the outing. La Jolla cove is beautiful!

This was such a good time and well worth the money. Saw a horn shark, sea lions and the caves were super pretty. Definitely a workout so be ready.
