La Jolla is a year round destination for snorkeling. Winter months tend to be a bit on the colder side but often with very good visibility. In the winter months we provide thicker wet suits to all ocean event participants. Winter is a great time to see a variety of fish. Springtime typically brings rain. We continue guided tour reservations year round. If you are arriving in the spring try to have a couple days that are optional for your snorkel adventure in case your first day of choice gets rained out. The Cove is often teaming with newborn life in the spring. In the summer months the waters off our coast tend to warm up and only a thin wet suit is needed by most participants. Sea lions and seals are abundant in the local waters during these months. Autumn is usually an amazing time to join our La Jolla snorkeling adventures. Warmer water temperatures and an abundance of sea life of the coast make this a fantastic time of year to get out on the water. Scuba and freediving events are also available with our guides throughout the year.
