Me and three friends (they were all experienced divers, me not so much) did the two-dive excursion, starting with the Kelp Forest in the morning and ending the day with La Jolla Canyon and had the best time! Our guides were fun and friendly, but all business in the water - they took really great care of us and we got to see a slew of marine life, from seals to Tope Sharks to Tuna Crab to octopus. Couldn't recommend it enough!

My son and I had a nice dive with Mark. He did a great job keeping an eye on everybody while still finding interesting sea life.

It took us over an hour just to get ready and more than half hour in the water to dive. At some stage I thought this was all a big joke and wanted to go back to the shore and call it all off. Tiresome experience and there was not much to see.

Hello, providing our divers with a positive experience is very important to us so as not to receive reviews like this. We are not sure who this diver is and when they dove with us but we would like to have the opportunity to make it up to them if possible. Shore diving does require more prep time then diving from a boat but an hour is excessive and we typically have our divers ready to go within 30 minutes of their arrival. The surface swim from the beach out to the site is 12-15 minutes on average. We're sorry this diver had a bad experience with us and we hope to hear from them so we can get more details and make it right, thanks!
