Snorkeling at the Seuss Mansion

  • Dec 14, 2013 · 1:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Please note that this event is all ages. Some experience with ocean swimming is encouraged, however, as the water in the target area will be somewhat choppy. Wear what you need to stay warm!

Required Gear: Snorkel, mask, fins

Recommended Optional Gear: Wetsuit, wetsuit socks, hood, gloves
(I always wear gloves when I dive because I like to grab onto things and poke around under rocks and also catch lobster and thornback rays. I also wear a knife on my leg because you just never know! Check out the Gear section of our Message Board for more info.)
_ _ _ _

Let's meet up at the path next to The Marine Room. 
For future reference, this will be our regular meeting spot for anyone attending a LaJolla snorkeling meetup with me.


You can text or call my cell if need up until about 1pm, at which point I leave my phone in the car.

    That was awesome!!! If anyone wants to go there again, or to the cove, I'm in... the Trick in winter is too rent your suit from a dive shop. Divers use 7mm wet suits. The snorkel shops usually only have 3mm or 5 mm suits. Ocean Enterprises, is a good place to rent, or San Diego Divers if your coming from the north. If anyone wants to give it a try let me know and I'll help you make sure you get the right gear for winter.

      OHHHH, and I was wearing a weight belt with 16 lbs, to get all that neoprene down to the bottom.

      Glad you had fun Randy. Really sorry I had to cancel at the last minute. I had some issues I couldn't overlook.

      If it's any consolation, I wish I was there!! It's a freaking beautiful day!! I am a fool.

      hahaha. Yes is was a great day for it.... saw tons of leopard sharks and huge schools of other fish. Super low tide, and great visibility. Oh, and I'm a wimp too... I was wearing a 7mm suit and hood, and 5mm gloves and boots. I was good for about an hour before I started getting cold.

  • Trevor M.

    Can't make it now. Had an issue come up that I have to deal with. Have fun!

    Is the path on the left side of the marine room? It's hard to tell from google maps. Also is it just street parking? See you later!

    December 14, 2013

    • Trevor M.

      Left. Once you're there you cannot miss it

      December 14, 2013

  • Trevor M.

    Yep. I'll be there!

      Hi Trevor, I am chickening out. I just don't think I will be able to handle the water temps for very long. I have a wetsuit but very little body fat. I will definitely give it a try when it gets warmer!! I've wanted to do this for ages! Sorry for the last minute :(

    Is anyone even going on Saturday?

    December 12, 2013

    • Randy H.

      Hey Trevor, I'm a maybe. I want to go if I can get free, but I will not know for sure until Friday.

    • Randy H.

      cool, I sent you a private email with my number.

      December 2, 2013

  • Trevor M.

    We're going to be going down the stairs right next to the Marine Room. Thanks Randy!

      Marine Room is located at 2000 Spindrift Dr. If you're looking at the front of the building the path to the ocean will be on the left. can't miss it. The path is actually shown on google maps.

    Trevor, Parking is always a pain down there. Would it not be better if we all just find parking and then meet up on the grass area where all the divers setup? or are we going somewhere else?

    Hi Trevor, do I need to get snorkel gear or is there a place to rent it?

    October 26, 2013

    • Trevor M.

      You will need to rent it.
      I always suggest Mitch's on Pearl St.
      Gear plus a wetsuit will run around $20 for the day.
