Overview
San Diego has spectacular sea caves, but really exploring the kelp forests, wildlife, and scenery means going out on the water. Get up-close views of the La Jolla Caves on this tour in a double kayak, paddling alongside guides in La Jolla Ecological Reserve. First-time kayakers are welcome on this laid-back tour, with the chance to see harbor seals, sea lions, dolphins, sea turtles, and whales.
Highlights
  • Paddle a stable double kayak that's beginner friendly
  • See native plants and wildlife on the La Jolla coast
  • Enter one of La Jolla's most famous sea caves
  • Look down into a giant kelp forest
  • This is a fun, 2-person activity led by expert kayak guides
What to Expect
Make your way to La Jolla, arriving a little bit before your departure time to get suited up in the onsite changing rooms. Head to the La Jolla Shores boat launch for a safety briefing and paddling instruction, and then launch a double kayak with help from your guide. Take plenty of breaks on the way to La Jolla Caves, stopping to learn about the four distinct micro-habitats that you pass. In addition to large marine wildlife, there are a lot of fish and birds to see, as well as the summertime aggregation of leopard sharks, one of the largest gathering in the world. Don't worry, these harmless sharks have small mouths and don't bite. See La Jolla's seven sea caves, paddling into the Emerald Cave when conditions allow. Following your time at Emerald Cave, check out the nearby giant kelp forest, the ideal spot for watching marine wildlife. Afterward, head back to the starting point.

I did this as a single not "for two". The tour was fun and Trent was attentive and informative. What was nice was that they took us out in small groups - only 5 kayaks per guide so when you fell behind, it was easy for them to wait and keep track. I would've liked to see more

Enjoyed visiting the sea caves. The guy was very informative and made sure everyone was with her at all times. I was a little nervous about going there as I’ve never kayaked before but it was relatively easy and it was beautiful day

Bought a Groupon for my SD vacation was not able to redeem because Everyday California offers a limited reservation site for Groupon users which means basically you pay the full price or you can't go. Roman lied to me repeatedly about what was available and spoke to me like I

Hey Nancy, We always appreciate feedback, and will try our hardest to get better. The prices are at its highest right now because it is the peak of our beautiful season. For lower rates, we always suggest coming down here in the offseason, Oct-March. Last week was some of the best weather and conditions we have had on record. We are glad you and your friends got to kayak around in the ecological reserve and experience the natural sea caves and abundant wildlife that La Jolla Shores has to offer. Have a great summer!
