What you'll do
La Jolla Shores is a popular snorkel location in San Diego. All year round, we can observe fish, invertebrates, seals, and sea turtles, with July-September being peak season to snorkel with harmless leopard sharks! After a brief safety and snorkel etiquette talk, we will explore the area for one hour. Since La Jolla Shores is a marine protected area, we will not handle or touch any animals. I will point out, and provide detailed information, as we encounter local animal species.
