What we’re about

About the 3Rs-Tours: 
Experiential learning sponsored by the San Diego Council Of Divers.
What are Rocks, Rips, & Reefs Tours (a.k.a. 3Rs-Tours)?
The 3Rs is an education and safety program for S.C.U.B.A. divers and experienced snorkelers and swimmers, surfers, and other water people. Participants explore various dive sites along the San Diego coast, in order to get a better understanding of the underwater features and how they are affected by tides and surf conditions.

Based in La Jolla, CA, the 3Rs program includes EIGHT in-water tours per summer: each site is led by experienced instructors, so participants can safely experience first-hand how to enter and exit these particular areas. The swimmers learn how to recognize local hazards, and how to handle themselves in emergency situations. The events are adventurous and a fun 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.
