“San Diego Scuba Guide is an outstanding experience. Davor is an eminently qualified guide and instructor. I highly recommend San Diego Scuba Guide to anyone who wishes to explore and experience San Diego’s jewel”

An outstanding experience

“Davor was easy-going and friendly. He provided tons of useful info and instruction, and tailored the dive to match my skill level. He was very knowledgeable about the La Jolla area, and gave good advice to move location due to conditions. He was even kind enough to jumpstart my car when it died at the first location”

Excellent experience all around
