Where are the best places to Scuba Dive in San Diego and surrounds?

by Usctwin Online Now Mar 25, 2013 at 2:59 PM

Hi All - I have been scuba diving at La Jolla Cove, but what are some other areas in San Diego or surrounds? Also, any recommendations on companies to go with? We like to dive with a guide since we're still fairly new. Thanks!

    The second two most popular places to dive of San Diego after la jolla cove are the kelp beds off point loma and the Cornado islands ( passport required as they are in Mexican territory. OEX and Waterhouse charters both send boats out there and probably you can get the dive master to guide you for a fee.

    Hi Kimberly,

    You might take a look at La Jolla Shores. There is a 6,000 acre water park to explore. I've written a bit about it here:

    "Kayaking!" - La Jolla Sports & Outdoors Tip by lmkluque

    La Jolla is the main area for Scuba Diving in San Diego and at La Jolla Shores there are a couple of companies that offer lessons and guided tours, one of those is included in my tip.

    Hope this helps,
    Linda
