Get a new perspective on the gorgeous La Jolla coastline with a sea caves kayak tour. No gear or experience is needed to paddle along the coast with a guide, exploring sea caves and rock formations while looking for marine life such as sea lions, dolphins, and even orcas.
What to Expect

Meet your guide in central La Jolla at least 30 minutes before your scheduled departure. Begin with a lesson on paddling techniques and safety. Tandem or single kayaks can be selected at checkout.

Push off from the beach at La Jolla Shores and paddle along the rocky coastline, considered one of the most beautiful in Southern California. Follow your guide to the La Jolla Sea Caves, where you get up-close views of interesting rock formations and even paddle inside the caves (if conditions allow).

As you navigate above giant sea kelp forests, keep an eye out for local marine life including seabirds, seals, sea lions, and even dolphins and orca whales. Prepare to get wet during an exciting “surf ride” on the waves to get back to shore at the end of the tour.

A lot of paddle work to get from the beach launch point to the caves; therefore if your going with a partner, opt for the two person Kayak

Amazing guides and fun tour

I want start by saying that guides, Katie and Eric, were really awesome and very funny. They gave great information and kept things easy and relaxed. The helpers on the beach were also truly heroic in working to get everyone past the high surf. Since...More

Worth it

The tour was a blast and the guides were good. The only thing I didn’t like was that the email advised to be 30-40 mins early, which I was. Then I was told to come back after 20 minutes so I didn’t need to be...More
