Bat Ray


Wall, Boulder Pile / Shelves


Reported to be among the most exciting popular shore dives in southern California. Swim directly out from the Lifeguard Station #20. To conserve air, you may want to surface swim for a little over 100yds before descending (just past a white buoy). At about 40, the bottom begins to drop off in a series of ledges and walls that stair step downward to depths beyond recreational diving limits. Bat Rays and guitar fish are frequently spotted resting on the shelves, large schools of bait fish and smaller reef inhabitants can be spotted along the way.

Once you are comfortable with the topography by day, this site makes for an exciting night dive opportunity. Squid come up to breed and are followed by leopard sharks, blue sharks, and giant sea bass who feed on them and their eggs.

Special Restrictions:

Deep depths and steep bottom contour. Less experienced divers should make sure you are comfortable with your buoyancy before attempting this dive. This site is a preserve, do not disturb or remove marine life.

How to get there:

Located just South of the University of San Diego. From I-5 heading North, take exit 26A to merge onto Ardath Rd/La Jolla Pkwy. Continue for 2 miles and take a right onto Calle de la Plata, then a quick left on Avenida de la Playa then Right onto Camino Del Oro.

From South Bound I-5, take exit 28 for Lajolla Village Drive and turn right and continue on Lajolla Village Drive for about a mile. Turn left on La Jolla Shores Dr. 1.3 miles take a right onto El Paseo Grande and then a slight right onto Camino del Oro.

Park near the intersection of Camino del Oro and Vallecitos and head down Vallecitos to the beach.
