What to Expect from San Diego in June
Early summer brings the least clear skies during the year because of coastal fog, but you'll still get sun more than half the time. With the rainy season over, there's little chance of precipitation. Evening fog comes in suddenly and can feel especially cold.

Especially Fun in June
San Diego's warm summers make it a great place for outdoor activities in the evening. Get some ideas here.
June through October is the tuna sport-fishing season. You can go out on a charter to catch them with several companies that operate out of Point Loma.
March through August is time for a uniquely California event. During the annual grunion run, thousands of tiny, silvery fish mate by the light of the full moon (or the new one). See the schedule. The best San Diego beaches to see the show are La Jolla Shores, Pacific Beach between Tourmaline Park and Lifeguard Tower 20, Mission Beach between Lifeguard Towers 19 and 10, Ocean Beach between Mission Bay Channel and the Ocean Beach Pier and on Coronado between the Hotel del Coronado and Dog Beach.
