What you'll do

YOU CAN CUSTOMIZE THIS TOUR TO ANY TIME YOU WISH AS LONG AS I'M AVAILABLE...JUST ASK. We will Snorkel through Kelp Forests and see beautiful Fish like the Golden Garibaldi and maybe even some Seals and eat Uni fresh out of the Sea. The price includes Wetsuit rentals to stay warm. If you fit into one of mine you'll get $15 back. We will meet in the parking lot of the "Dive N' Surf" Dive shop and rent suits if need be and then drive off to the actual Snorkeling location 10-15 minutes away. You never know...we might even find an Octopus. Don't worry if you've never done it before....I can teach you. :) Search "TARZAN of Los Angeles" on Instagram, Facebook, YouTube and you can see my level of comfort in the Ocean.
You can even bring less capable family members like a nursing Mother with an infant or elderly Family member in a Wheelchair to relax on the beautiful Beach and watch.
Other things to note
You may need to rent a wetsuit in the winter months if my Wetsuits don't fit you which will ad $15 to your experience.

Where you'll be

We'll be in a beautiful secluded Cove off the Los Angeles Coastline in Rancho Palos Verdes or Malibu. Once there you Snorkel at will or relax on a beautiful Beach and take in the sights. I have a choice of locations that facilitate Wheelchairs and Strollers or not. The one that doesn't is more secluded and offers more Wildlife. Just contact me and ask.
Search "TARZAN of Los Angeles" on YouTube, Facebook and Instagram and you'll see me. :)

I had a great time snorkeling with Gary - exploring the kelp beds and tide pools and enjoying fresh uni. He’s a positive ball of energy and made sure to keep you safe. He was never too far from me and also was great at capturing footage of you. Note: the waters are cold and if you have never been snorkeling or scuba diving in California, the cove trip might be well outside your comfort zone. I would consider his harbor excursion since everything sounds much more controlled in terms of water movement. I would absolutely recommend Gary to anyone who is comfortable with this type of adventure. He’s the best.

I had the most amazing experience with Gary! I had gone “snorkeling” before but never like this. Gary is very experienced and took time to educate on the gear and surrounding environment. It is definitely something that will push you out of your comfort zone. Gary also took the time to take some amazing pictures and videos which I thought was awesome. I would definitely recommend this to step up your snorkel game and an overall badass experience!

Gary was absolutely awesome. Everything went even better than expected. My wife and I had never snorkeled or kayaked but Gary had us up and running in no time and we had such a great time. Definitely recommend.

Enjoy a personal touch to your SoCal excursion. Gary is a great host but treats you like an old friend. He loves to share his passion for the ocean and the entire experience reflects that. He grew up in this area and learned how to snorkel in the exact lagoon that we were in - so neat!! Hint: make sure you bring a wide brimmed hat, sunscreen and, most importantly, water. You can't drink the salty stuff ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

I’ve had an amazing experience. This is truly an experience adventurers should not miss out on. It was exciting and I learned so much about snorkeling the “right” way. There were so many urchins and beautiful kelp to swim through. Thanks Gary !!!

Incredible experience. My boyfriend and I had never snorkeled before and Gary made sure we were comfortable/confident before taking us out to dive for sea urchin (which we got to eat!!)0 and swim through the kelp forest. Prior to getting in the water Gary had us fitted in wet suits and drove us to the location. He took great pics and videos and had awesome stories along the way. Will definitely be contacting him in the future for great experiences/recs of hidden spots in the Cali area. Unique experience and a great guy. Thanks Gary!!!
