I love diving with La Jolla dive. Usually the conditions are great and we see some fantastic sea life, but even when the ocean doesn’t cooperate or the visibility isn’t brilliant, the guides are always first-rate and so is the owner.

Was a great experience over all! While the conditions weren't awesome the company definitely was! Everyone who participated in my dive was awesome from the owner and Brian the guide of my dive.

I really enjoyed my dive. Our instructor did a great job showing us marine life at La Jolla and the highlight definitely was swimming with the seals (scary but was fun).
