People often describe strange sea creatures by comparing them to familiar land animals, giving the name "cows of the sea" to manatees and "yaks of the sea" to kayaks. Encounter marine mammals with this Groupon.

Choose Between Two Options

For the snorkel tour, OEX La Jolla outfits each patron with a mask, snorkel, and fins. Then snorkelers head out to La Jolla Cove and come face-to-fin with sea creatures such as dolphins, seals, and leopard sharks.

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 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. each weekday to explore the seven sea caves from stable, sit-on-top kayaks that are ideal for beginners. The certified guides possess fathoms of 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.

Everyday California

Action water-sports shop Everyday California (formerly OEX), wrangles an experienced team of experts to escort patrons on kayak, surfing, and snorkeling tours.

Kayak tours take paddlers out on a variety of adventures, including destinations such as seven sea caves, the paths of migrating gray whales, and underwater kelp forests. Everyday California also rents out kayaks, snorkel gear, surfboards, paddleboards, and saddles for baby belugas.
