San Diego Snorkeling - Mission Point

Navanax inermis sea slug we saw snorkeling at Mission Point
One of the best places to snorkel in San Diego, is Mission Point. There are no crowds and the parking is good, even in summer as long as you get there by 8AM, and there is lots to see. Plus it is a shallow entry and the water is typically calm because it is a protected cove.
My wife and I snorkel there at Mission Point often during the summer. We also go night snorkeling and see even more sea creatures.
Typically at Mission Point we will see navanax, sea stars, kelp fish, senoritas, moray eels, octopus and abalone, just to name a few. We see way more stuff here than at La Jolla Cove or La Jolla Shores.
