Join the Just Get Wet crew to experience some of San Diego's premiere dive sites. You will be paired up with one of our professional freedive guides, ensuring safety and making sure you have the best possible underwater experience. From magical kelp forests to sunken ships and towers, you never know what you might see aboard the “Tangerine Dream”. Safety is paramount with diving, so we do require that you have a certification from a freediving training agency. The depths we will be diving are largely between 30 and 80+ feet so we want to make sure everyone is familiar with safety procedures and the basics of freediving.
- You will need your own freediving gear
- It is highly recommended to bring out plenty of water as well as a small snack
Pick a dive site:
Since sinking in 2000, this 366ft long and 40ft wide Canadian destroyer has become one of San Diego's most popular diving destinations. This wreck dive is only suitable for intermediate to advanced freedivers as it sits between 65ft and 105ft underwater. This is San Diego's most intact wreck site still maintaining the structure of the bridge, deck gear and twin three inch gun turrets. The HMCS Yukon is covered in a large biodiversity of marine organisms, ranging from anemones to many fish species.
The Ruby E. is a 166ft Coast Guard Cutter, originally designed to intercept “rum runners” during the prohibition era. In 1989 the ship was intentionally sunk to serve as an artificial reef and has since become one of San Diego’s premiere dive sites. This wreck is most suitable for intermediate to advanced freedivers with diving depths between 50 and 85 feet. The wreck is now home to many types of marine life ranging from sea stars, crabs, to small fish species that bring in bigger fish.
The NOSC Tower is Wreck Alley’s most beginner friendly dive site, with the top of the tower sitting at around 30ft, and the sandy bottom sitting around 60. The tower began its life as a 100ft tall steel structure that had been permanently secured to the ocean floor. It was during a strong storm in 1988 that the metal structure failed, twisting it and leaving it where it now sits on the seafloor. The tower is covered in many kinds of anemones, and it is home to an large diversity of fish species ranging from sheepshead to black sea bass
Point Loma / La Jolla Kelp Forest:
San Diego is known for having some of the largest and healthiest kelp forests in the world. These kelp beds range anywhere to 30ft deep to 80+ so there is something for divers of all skill levels to enjoy. The thick canopy of the kelp provides the perfect habitat to come across marine life such as giant black sea bass, sevengill / tope sharks, seals, and guitarfish.
