Leopard sharks at la jolla shores

Way too hot to stay in phoenix this weekend, so we are heading to la jolla. We love seeing the leopard sharks at la jolla shores- have they arrived yet?

To answer your question about which direction to swim, GoodBeer already told you that the sharks are on the right, but first you'd have to go swim out of the cove and around the rocks and past the caves to LJ Shores.

To swim from la jolla cove to la jolla shores is not something anyone should attempt unless they have some open ocean swimming experience. This swim is not a vacation activity, but rigorous excercise. Just drive over and park. I'm serious when I say this, you could die if you don't know what you are doing.

La Jolla Cove and Shores are near each other, but not really within walking distance: must walk along very busy street and up/down a big hill. You can see one from the other & it is about a 1 mile swim across deep water. Check out where they are on google maps: https://maps.google.com/maps?q=la+jolla+cove&ie=UTF-8&ei=nWoAUu7fEMm8iwLCwIDICw&ved=0CAoQ_AUoAg

For your information, the leopard sharks are back. Not yet in big numbers as in the past, but they are here. The water has been pretty cool though (64-65º F).
