San Diego boat dives charter out daily to Wreck Alley. The HMCS Yukon and the Ruby E. are the principle scuba diving adventures. The wrecks found in San Diego’s famous Wreck Alley present all the mystery of wrecks and challenges of deeper dives.
The Yukon is definitely an ADVANCED DIVE. The wreck is over 60 feet deep. The HMCS Yukon is a 399-ft. long destroyer resting in 100 ft/30 meters. It sank in a storm with heavy swells the night before it was would have been sunk by charges placed in the hull. You must show an Advanced or higher certification card to do this dive.
The Ruby E. is an older wreck very near the Yukon. Once a US Coast Guard ship, it is well developed in sea life and is resting in 80 ft/25 meters of water.
Los Coronados Islands: There is a huge Sea Lion Colony now in La Jolla Cove. The main reason people took boat dives to the Los Coronado Islands(owned by Mexico), was the fun of diving with sea lions. But now, because there is no reason to take a 2.5 hour boat ride out there we no longer recommend this scuba dive excursion. It was a favorite in the old days but until the Mexican Government make the entire group of islands off limits to their own fishermen too it will be a very clear dive among a bunch of rocks.
