San Diego is the ideal place to enjoy many ocean activities all year long. Visitors who stay at one of the hotels in downtown San Diego, are within minutes of beautiful beaches, whale watching tours and harbor cruises.
One of the great beaches to enjoy the water is La Jolla Shores. Here you’ll find nearby surf shops that offer surf lessons and camps for individuals of all ages and skill levels. Another fun family activity is taking a kayaking tour along the caves of La Jolla. These relaxing and inexpensive water activities are within minutes of the Marina Inn, a preferred San Diego beach hotel.
If you don’t want to get wet, but still want to enjoy the ocean, go on a whale watching tour. During the months of December through April, tourists can watch the annual whale migration. Whale watching is the most popular water activity in the bay and many sightseeing and whale watching companies provide tours.
Another activity for water lovers is to take a ferry to Coronado. These ferries will also transport your car, so you can explore Coronado and return via the famous Coronado Bridge. Another boating option is a harbor cruise which goes up and down the bay giving passengers a view of the San Diego downtown skyline.
