What You Will Do
- Swim and snorkel through the mysterious sea caves of La Jolla, once used during prohibition to smuggle alcohol into taverns in La Jolla and San Diego, on a 90 minute snorkeling tour with a local guide
- Learn about the marine ecosystems of a protected underwater gem, and delve deep into the caverns to explore pristine waters of San Diego
- Experience the freedom of open water swimming, not to mention a killer workout, while swimming into the caverns
- Mask, snorkel, and fins
- Experienced guide
Meet your guide in the grassy area located in front of the public restrooms underneath a blue canopy tent. Parking is extremely difficult at this location. Make sure to arrive at least half an hour to an hour early in order to give yourself time.
Cancellations made within 48 hours of your tour will only receive 50% refund. Cancellations due to weather will be fully refunded or scheduled for a new day at no charge. Days where the surf exceeds 2-3ft in height tours will be cancelled at that location and you will have the option to reschedule your tour for a different day or switch to a Bay Snorkel Tour which is not affected by high surf.

I'm glad we went on a weekday - this is a crowded location with kayaks in the same spot.
Our snorkeling guide was very knowledgeable. He was also a great dude! We had a good time out in the water and felt safe with the guide. My only issue is to inform customers on more detail of where the meeting spot is going to be. The address provided only brought us to a house adjacent on the other side of the street for the meeting spot.
Alex and Tyler were very friendly. Alex led our excursion. He was very patience and took great care of us. We will probably look into some other their other excursions.
I appreciated how in-depth and caring their training/preparation was for first time snorklers. They were both enthusiastic and worked to make sure everyone was comfortable and had fun with this trip. The caves were beautiful.
Sea cave snorkeling tour was awesome! My tour guides Jonathan and JT were awesome and patient considering I was panicking on our way into the water. They weren't rude or impatient when I thought about quitting, on the contrary, Jonathan offered a simpler route for me in order to not swim further due to my panicking. They were helpful with our GoPro package and did take shots we asked for. JT was patient enough to teach me how to dive in a bit deeper so that I can take memorable pictures I wanted. Thanks guys! I'm definitely coming back!
Guides were terrific and made myself and my girlfriend feel very comfortable
Great customer service on the front end; Olivia was a knowledgeable, friendly and enthusiastic guide.
Booked the Sea Cave which ended up being canceled and switched to the Mission Bay tour. Not your fault and is understandable. The guides are what made the experience. They were top notch.
The guides were awesome, however they were a little late to set up the tent so there was a hard time finding the meeting spot and I thought I'd missed it. Other than that the experience was fun and we had a great time!
