I haven't heard, but this is about the time they arrive usually so I am going to jump in with both feet and say sure, they are here :)
How long do they stay?
No, they weren't there as of this past Sunday. They will probably arrive some time in mid to end July. I did see a couple of guitar fish, and there were plenty of sting rays. So don't jump in with both feet. Instead, do the stingray shuffle to warn them you are approaching. :)
La Jolla is beautiful, have a wonderful time there! :)
We were there last Friday, I didn't see anyone heading down to snorkel down where the sharks would be. Lots of snorkelling at La Jolla cove but most exciting thing I saw was garibaldi, along bass and maybe mackerel and opaleye (not the best at identifying) but there were more things further out in the kelp forest where I did not venture.
Hi, I'm in Washington state and will be heading down to la jolla and will be snorkeling next weekend(July 6)...anyway, I've been to the cove and snorkeled there and loved it, but did know anything about la jolla shores, are the shores snorkeling area near the cove, can I walk from one area to the next?
Oh ok, thanks...one more question...lets say I'm standing on the beach at the cove, right in front of the lifeguard shack, and I'm facing the water, I start to wade out into the water, I know to the Right is the rocks where the seals and sea lions hang out, so if I wanted to swim to the area where the leopard sharks may be, I'm guessing I would swim/snorkel to the left?
If you are at the cove facing the water, the area with the leopard sharks is to your right, near La Jolla Shores.
Jeremy_S_1973 must be a pretty good swimmer, because from the Cove to LJ Shores is, to me at least, quite a bit of a haul. I'm not a strong swimmer, so I won't even attempt it. I do see people swimming either to the bouys that indicate certain distances (1/4 & 1/2 mile). It is farther still to the Shores. The largest congregation of leopard sharks are in the shallow waters right in front of the Marine Room, perhaps 4-10 yards off the LJ Shores beach.
