    Hey,

    We're going to be in San Diego in March. What will water temp be like? Also looking for dive sites and dive operations. Any recommendations?

    Can't say enough good things about Marissa Dive Charters. They are located in Mission Bay, and it is a short boat ride to the Yukon.

    I agree, Marissa dive charter runs a clean safe professional dive operation. But don't miss taking a dive boat to Catalina Island.

    Hey SafetyStopBait,

    In my experience, bottom temps are more like 52-3 degrees on the average, perhaps a little higher in the kelp than on the wrecks. This is full 7mm with hooded vest vs. drysuit territory. I dive cold water infrequently and do fine with the wet version. The Yukon and the Ruby E are fine wrecks, the kelp forests are beautiful. The Coronados are also a good destination. My favorite operator is Marissa dive charters, smaller number of divers, more personal service. Owner, Lora Meyer, is very responsive via email. Waterhorse Charters is also very good, a larger operator. PM me with questions.

    Good diving, Craig
