“sealife extravaganza”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 7, 2013

Hired some flippers, mask & snorkel and went snorkelling from the cove and saw loads of varieties of fish swimming in relatively shallow water. Amazing to have seals swimming alongside and underneath you as you are in the water.
Visability was only about 6 or 7 feet on the day we went and can be smelly around the rocks as you walk to & from the cove due to all the sea birds who reside there.

“Amazing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2013

The La Jolla area has some breathtaking views and is a visual treat. It is also very exciting to see sea lions lounging on the beach in the Children's Pool and La Jolla Cove. Definitely worth the trek from San Diego to La Jolla Village for this. We didn't have a car, and we still made it. La Jolla Village is also a darling little place, and is worth spending some time exploring.
