We are open for bookings!
During the winter months we do not pop up our canopy at the cove due to a lack of business however we are still open and taking same days bookings for snorkeling and paddleboarding. Thank you!

We have reopened for snorkeling on a booking basis. Same day bookings available! Thank you for your patience and we appreciate your business.

Oil and tar are still washing up all down the San Diego coast. For this reason we will continue to only be open for paddleboarding on a booking basis. We appreciate your business and apologize for any inconvenience!

Due to water contamination, we are closed for snorkeling today. We hope to open tomorrow! Please check back for updates. Thank you.

We have new hours! We are open Friday, Saturday and Sunday for snorkeling on a walk up basis. Please contact us via phone or email for Paddleboard or snorkel group bookings. Thank you!

Diving today at last Jolla cove is poor with 3-4 ft waves and moderate current surge! We will be available for rentals on a mobile basis and recommend La Jolla shores for snorkeling access to the sea caves and leopard sharks!

We apologize however today is listed as slightly worse than yesterday for visibility and ocean conditions. Again we apologize and only wish to serve you the best we can. We will check tomorrow to reopen for rentals.

Conditions are listed as 0-5 ft. POOR with moderate current surge - we will not rent in these conditions for safety reasons and quality of experience. We apologize for any inconvenience and will reopen tomorrow for rentals. We appreciate your understanding!

We had a great experience snorkeling at the cove. The sea lions were very active and we were fortunate enough to get many photos. We are so grateful for the free phone lanyards we received as part of our rental. We are looking forward to going out a few more times this week when the water has more visibility. I would recommend this business to anyone looking for a fun outing. We returned to snorkel twice more and we’re able to wade with and swim the waters with the leopard sharks. This is such an amazing experience! I would give 6 stars if I could!

Excellent snorkel rental company. The owner & staff were friendly, kind, attentive, knowledgable and helpful. The equipment was high quality, (near new) and santitized. We rented suit, mask & snorkel and flippers. The pricing is good and the location excellent.

I gave them a call to see if they were open on thanksgiving weekend and they answered the phone right away. These guys were super nice and accommodating. We were able to find the right size fins for me and my daughter before we even showed up (he asked for sizes on the phone) before we left, he gave us a snorkeling map of the area. I’m not sure there was much more he could have done to make his customer experience any better!
