Calm, clear waters make this San Diego cove a great place for snorkelers. Try and spot the colorful garibaldi, octopus, and lobster while exploring the cove's pristine waters. La Jolla Cove is within the San Diego La Jolla Underwater Park Ecological Reserve. This underwater park offers great views for any snorkeler as well as tidal pools to explore.

Local snorkeling.

Sometimes we take local spots for granted such as La Jolla Cove. I've lived in SD for a majority of my life and never knew you can go snorkeling at the cove. It was an awesome experience. The water is super cold but worth it.
