San Diego diving attractions are the Point Loma kelp beds, Los Coronados islands, La Jolla Cove, La Jolla underwater canyon, and Wreck Alley (Yukon, Ruby E, El Rey).

There can be squid runs in the canyon during February. If they're running when you're here, don't miss it.

Typically water temperature in February will be 50-55 degrees F at the wrecks or in the underwater canyon, 55-60 degrees F at the surface.

Topside, generally sunny and pleasant, with highs in the mid to upper 60's. February is the "rainy" season, so expect a few rain storms during the month. The winter swells in San Diego come from the North Pacific. When there is a big storm there, San Diego has high surf, even though the sky may be blue and sunny.

Most usual visibility on the wrecks and most shore diving locations is about 15 feet.

The Lois Ann ( and the Blue Escape ( are two well-thought-of San Diego dive charters. I have used and can recommend both.

For more information on San Diego diving, check out (not a commercial site). It provides a good listing of local dive sites, along with archived dive reports from San Diego divers. It will give you a good feel for San Diego diving.
