The San Diego La Jolla Underwater Park Ecological Reserve is a 6000 acre underwater park that actually encompasses two other parks.

The Ecological Reserve founded in 1971 which spans from La Jolla cove all the way to La Jolla Shores. This area is a “Free Swimming Zone” and boating is permitted only at speeds of five miles per hour. No fishing is allowed as it is also a marine refuge.

The second park is the Scripps Institution of Oceanography’s Marine Life Refuge established in 1929 and serves as a research area for Scripps.

The park has two artificial reefs, the first is located near Scripps Canyon in 70 feet of water and made with quarry rock from Santa Catalina. The second reef is off the glider port and was started in 1975.

Many popular activities in the reserve include swimming, diving and snorkeling. Kayaking, fishing the outer kelp beds and just observing the vast array of biological diversity..


Location: La Jolla Shores, La Jolla, CA 92037.
