I booked the two tank La Jolla Cove and La Jolla Canyon trip and had a great time! It was just me diving and I had never shore dove in cold water conditions before. I had the pleasure of having Liam as my guide. He did a fantastic job of going over the dive briefing and making sure I had a safe and fun time. He was knowledgeable in the local marine life and went above and beyond to make it a great experience. I would highly recommend this shop to anyone visiting.

Ely was a great guide for our small group. He was very knowledgeable about the area and helped us with some difficulties we had in the water. The dice company was easy to work with and I would rent and/or schedule a dive through them again.

My 11 year old son and I did 2 shore dives in La Jolla Cove. This was out first ocean dive and we had a great time. Saw the kelp forest, lots of fish, lobsters, and were lucky enough to see a shark. Our guide Ely was very informative, kept us safe, and helped significantly with the surface swims and waves. Would certainly recommend using La Jolla Dive

Great dives, no stress! Tiffany is a great divemaster! We saw lots of the local fish and caught a glimpse of some sea lions.

I was looking for a dive master (DM) to take me on a guided shore dive at La Jolla Shores and Google took me to La Jolla Dive. Super easy setup when I called... Chris the owner was very accommodating and professional. I was also very pleased at the price... a great value compared to other operations. The night before, I got a call from Liam, the DM, to talk about the dive. Speaking from experience, I've never seen that high level of service from a dive shop. I told him I hadn't been cold water diving in quite awhile and needed to test out some new gear. He really put my mind at ease... he's a super good listener and he made sure I knew where to go the next morning and asked if I needed anything. The next day we met up and it was a very convenient walk from the shop out to the beach. We did thorough predive buddy checks, he explained the plan and we hit the water. Liam did a fantastic job navigating out to Vallecitos Point and down into La Jolla Canyon... following our predive plan to the T. He pointed out some cool critters along the way and checked on me frequently to be sure I was OK. We did a fantastic 45 minute dive to about 70 feet. After we surfaced, we debriefed and Liam helped me get my gear back to the shop and loaded up in my car. He stayed until he knew I was leaving with a big grin on my face. The whole experience from start to finish was thoroughly professional... customer service was top notch and to top it off, Liam even sent edited video and pics of me and some of the critters we saw later that day! A great experience. Can't recommend La Jolla Dive and dive master Liam enough!
