Since the invention of inflation, prices for groceries have skyrocketed and rivers have become traversable. Enjoy the scenic side of economics with today's Groupon: for $39, you get a sea-cave tour for two in a double kayak from La Jolla Kayak in La Jolla (up to an $85 value).
Masters of both paddles and the Pacific's waters, La Jolla Kayak's certified kayakers lead coastal sightseeing tours for groups of all experience and fitness levels. Before each 120-minute exploration kicks off from the shore, a mandatory five-minute safety briefing ensures that guests understand the importance of wearing personal floatation devices and never giving out email passwords to smooth-talking sea bass. As vessels propel past the sea-washed cliff walls and expansive caves that line the picturesque coast, tour guides share tales of local history between sights of bottlenose dolphins, leopard sharks, and damselfish. Though La Jolla Kayak recommends changing into swimsuits before arrival, bodies can also snuggle within rental wetsuits ($15 for two), whose insulated, slippery fabric holds in heat and keeps lovestruck sea lions from grabbing hold.
La Jolla Kayak's rates fluctuate throughout the week.

La Jolla Kayak
At La Jolla Shores, the ocean bottom slopes gently out to sea and the waves roll gently toward the beach, where seals can be found sleeping in the sun. This unique ecology makes the area an ideal entryway into the ocean, which the native La Jollan owners of La Jolla Kayak take full advantage of, leading kayaking excursions past the steep cliffs and through the secluded sea caves where humans first learned to douse fire.
Alternatively, snorkel tours allow explorers to dive into the 6,000-acre Underwater Park to spy the leopard shark, garibaldi, and dolphins swimming underfoot. To facilitate journeys, La Jolla Kayak transports visitors' kayaks to the beach straight from its outfitting shop, which also houses complimentary lockers and rents out wetsuits to keep love-struck sea lions from slipping notes into divers' pockets.
