    San Diego Diving

    Is there any good diving around San Diego CA? I'll be there for about a week at the end of July. Any help will be much appreciated. Thanks

    I was in San Diego last year. I did not get the chance to dive any of the charter boat dives. Thankfully, I did get the chance to do some shore diving out in La Jolla, just north of San Diego. OEX is a shop there that rents equipment and does guided shore dives that I would recommend. I believe they do both La Jolla Shores and La Jolla Cove. The divemasters really help you appreciate the local life and diving conditions.

    OEX | La Jolla | Scuba

    Hope this helps!

    Diving in San Diego

    The best shore dive in Southern California is the La Jolla Cove Ecological Reserve. This is one of the oldest marine reserves in California. We see rare and endangered Giant Black Sea Bass, Soup Fin (Tope) sharks, and over the past two years a very large 7 gill (maybe 10 ft or more) has been seen regularly.

    come diving to San Diego, Rod

    I'll give a +1,000 to La Jolla as well. I've had some great dives there!

    I once saved a man in Wichita just to watch him dive...(inventor)

    San Diego is a great place to dive, and there is a lot of diving in and around San Diego. But keep in mind it is not tropical water.

    Great advice for Key West Travel Deals

    I like La Jolla diving and the Humboldt dive boat is top notch. I have taken students out on deep dives to the Yukon and the Ruby E and the Radio Towers. They usually get by in a 7 mil year round with hood and gloves on these dives. I always use my drysuit.

    The water temp at depth in July can be anywhere from the high 50's to 60's. Another great dive site is the dive park on Catalina, but you have to take the ferry from Dana Point or Long Beach/San Pedro to get there. Lots to see anywhere you go, I do a lot of beach dives in the Laguna area also, but some of the beaches there can be a little challenging getting in and out.
    Too many people miss the silver lining because they're expecting gold.
