I hadn't been diving in a while but heard the vis was good (and it is summer!!!) so I booked a tour with Chris to get back in the water. The location is great, gear up and it's a quick walk to the "shores", of course there is a hand-cart for the heavy stuff which makes it easier. Chris is very thorough and makes sure everything is ready and doesn't rush you.
The surface swim out is what it is, but I didn't sign up for a boat dive! The cool thing is Chris drops you right on the edge of the canyon so you don't do the "sand swim", wasting air and time. People say there isn't much to look at here but with Chris it's different, he points out all the little things that you might miss without his experience and local knowledge. We saw lots of fringeheads, gobi, sheepshead crab and sheephead fish, numerous invertabrates and even an octopus. Tons of sea life if you take your time and look! Reminds me of Anza Borrego Desert...
You really get your money (and air)'s worth with this local. The shop has nothing to buy, except for a souvenir T-shirt, just any rental gear you need. It's in a funky but ideal location, you can probably ask anybody where it is in this small commercial nook of La Jolla, no other dive shop is close by (or closer to the H2O!)
