In the past 50 years of teaching diving, I have been lucky enough to dive all over the world. People often ask me where my favorite place in the world is to dive. I always say, “La Jolla Cove.” The question is always, “Don’t you get bored diving the same area so often?” The answer is “never.”
The kelp forest is a mystical place and never boring because you never know what you will see on a given dive. We have four distinctly different seasons in our underwater world, and the temperature can range from 56 in the winter to 79 during an El Nino summer. Surprise and wonder are always the order of the day.
Come dive with us!

Scuba San Diego, Inc. guides have over 53 years of diving experience throughout the State of California. We provide guided day and night dives to the La Jolla Cove Ecological Reserve, the oldest marine reserve in California.
The goal is to introduce divers from all over the world to the wonders of the La Jolla Cove near shore ecosystem and beautiful kelp forests. It is said that you can watch the kelp grow on good days. It actually can grow one foot per day under normal conditions. Our dive masters and instructors have hundreds of hours in this reserve.
World-class divers place diving with us in La Jolla in the top five dives that they have experienced. The amazing thing is we do this from the beach. Since 1929, no motorized craft have been permitted in the La Jolla Cove Ecological Reserve. It is that special.
