Southern California Itinerary
>>Hire a local guide at San Diego Divers to help you navigate La Jolla Shores, one of Southern California’s best muck dives. Small red octopuses, nudibranchs and yellowfin fringehead blennies are common.
>>Then head into town to Point Loma Seafoods for an early dinner (watch the time; they close at 7 p.m.) of incredibly fresh seafood, including Baja-style fish tacos.
>>Board the MV Horizon on the adjacent dock for an overnight run to San Clemente Island. Spend the day aboard the Horizon enjoying the beautiful kelp forests of San Clemente, where you can watch harbor seals and torpedo rays glide through blue water. Breakfast, lunch and dinner are included. Head back to San Diego, and get a good night’s sleep.
>>After breakfast at the Mission in Mission Bay, check in with Waterhorse Charters for a two-tank dive charter to Wreck Alley. Dive No. 1 will visit the behemoth HCMS Yukon, and dive No. 2 will take you to the pretty Ruby E.
>>Spend the afternoon visiting the Scripps Aquarium in La Jolla.
