What we're about

About the 3R-Tours:

Experiential learning sponsored by the San Diego Council Of Divers.

What is Rocks, Rips, & Reefs (a.k.a. 3Rs-Tours)? The 3Rs is an education and safety program for Divers and experienced Snorkelers and Swimmers. Participants learn about various dives sites to get a better understanding of the underwater features and how tides and conditions may affect them and is beneficial to both the new Diver and experienced veterans.

The program includes EIGHT (8/Summer) in-water tours, each site led by experienced instructors so participants can experience first-hand how to safely enter and exit sites, how to recognize hazards and how to enter handle themselves in emergency situations. The events are a lot of fun, a little bit adventurous, and a great opportunity to learn about various dive sites. Most importantly, the experience will help you be a better and safer diver no matter where you go.
