La Jolla Outpost is committed to clean and functional equipment. I’m an avid snorkeler myself and I thought to myself, “ If I was on vacation why would I spend money on a mediocre snorkel set that I have to pack into my suitcase after only using for a couple hours and never use it again. Why isn’t there somewhere I can rent quality snorkels at reasonable prices.I love seeing people from locals and/or travelers getting out and seeing the beautiful aquatic life that makes The Cove so special

Truly Memorable - The customer service was great and very informative for our first time in San Diego. They made sure we had equipment that fit well and guided us through the process. Some of our party saw sharks and interacted with a sea lion in the ocean.Super cool experience for everyone! Definitely worth it!

Perfect 1st time sea kayaking - Our 1st time sea kayaking. This was perfect. We did the cave tour. The guides were super attentive, informative, accommodating and helpful. We saw leopard sharks, seals and an orange California fish-can't remember the name. I'll be back.

Perfect highlight of our tour! - This was the best day in our two weeks road trip in California and we cannot reccomend it enough! From price to service and the actual experience it was all perfect . You get wetsuits too which is a plus, and the sea lions were just so much fun!

Family fun in the water - Good deal!! Myself and my 3 kids rented so we could snorkel the shores and see some leopard sharks. One of the 3 masks didn’t have a great seal but we just swapped around the good 2. 2/3 beats our other mask rental experiences, so no complaints!!

They recommend you to touch marine animals which is a no go - Terrible. Zero but zero educated about the protection of marine life. You can even see from their first picture holding up starfish. No advice on not using sunscreen, nothing matters but the cash
