  • Nick was a great guide. It was my first time diving in a while, but he took his time getting me adjusted. First dive was good just off of La Jolla Beach. Second dive was in the Kelp Forest, but it got cancelled because of weather. Nick was up front about the conditions and let me make the call. I'd recommend purchasing the insurance, which I did for around $22, so there was no issues getting a refund on the second dive. Great experience.
  • Nick was a great divemaster and a very cool guy that spends time getting to know you. I had such an amazing time and can’t wait to dive with him again. Highly recommend!
  • Nice store. Very up to date apparel. Good quality. Friendly sales people.
  • We went diving with Nick from SD Expeditions yesterday and had a great experience. Nick and the crew were very professional. The boat had lots of room and was very comfortable. The rental equipment was all in good condition and well maintained. There were cold beverages and wonderful deli sandwiches, chips, cookies, fruit available for lunch. I would recommend SD Expeditions to anyone. We will definitely be back for another dive. Thanks for a fun day!
  • I went out with Nick last weekend and had the experience of a lifetime on this trip! I truly have nothing but positive things to say. The crew were extremely knowledgeable, friendly and very helpful with anything i needed. Right from the start they were very welcoming and helpful. They had food and beverages to keep us refreshed and energized all day for the entire excursion along with these nice big jackets to keep us warm. Also Nick provided us with all the gear we needed and gave us all the knowledge needed to keep us safe and give us an amazing experience. The captain (who's name recently slipped my mind) was also great. Very personable and knowledgeable, a great addition to the crew and our trip. Nick was constantly working to keep the boat nice and to bring in the sharks. We had one blue shark come in and disappear quickly but then a couple hours later one came in and stuck around then shortly after that another one came in and we had two in the water with us. It was an absolutely amazing experience and i will most definitely return as soon as i can and i would recommend this trip to anyone brave enough to get in the water with the sharks. One thing that really stuck out to me and i liked was after talking to Nick i realized SD Expeditions was his company and it had started out as "some scuba gear sitting in his shower and a dream" as he said. I don't know about you all but i would support that over any bigger and "better" company any day. Also don't forget at the end of your trip to get the super cool new shirts that were "fresh off the press" as Nick was saying. Definitely the coolest thing I've done in my life. Huge thank you to Nick and the rest of the SD Expeditions staff and can't wait for my next trip out with you!
