For the sea-cave kayak tour, up to 20 tour-goers paddle in formation behind an experienced guide and cruise through La Jolla's local ecological preserve. Tours launch regularly between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. daily to explore the seven sea caves from stable, sit-on-top kayaks that are ideal for beginners. The certified guides possess knowledge about the local wildlife and history of the area and mete out anecdotal tidbits that leave tours hungry for more. The groups regularly encounter barking harbor seals and sea lions, curious dolphins, and harmless leopard sharks—proof that a leopard can't change its spots but can exchange its legs for fins.

Kayak and snorkel tours explore La Jolla's long relationship with its marine wildlife. Curious sea lions and harmless leopard sharks swim near passing-by adventurers as the embark through a Pacific excursion. All participants must be 8 or older, and an ability to swim is highly recommended for this tour.

    “If u dare to jump out of the kayak make sure u have enough upper strength to hoist you up back on it!! I almost did not make it but swimming in the middle of the bay was awesome... Well worth the small panic attack! Nice crew, we had fun!!”

  • “Arrive 30-60 minutes ahead of time to find parking and get situated.”

  • “If you do stand up paddleboarding, be prepared to carry your board to the beach yourself. They cannot drop you off and it is a couple blocks away from the beach. ”
