Sea kayaking was awesome! It was a bit nerve racking because...well the sea is a dangerous place! We had to take off first before the instructor and meet them way out in the open ocean. That was scary but thrilling! In the photo, it shows a kayaker from within the caves and I thought we were literally kayaking in the caves but we didn't. Which kinda makes sense because there were lots of wave's crashing due to high winds. I wonder IF there were no high winds; do they usually kayak in the caves at all?? Overall, it was a fun experience. Danielle was awesome with her awesomeness and fun facts. Definitely give it go but I dunno if I'd try it again as I got kind of sea sick!

It was such an amazing experience. The guides are very friendly and let you do your own thing even though you’re included in a group. There’s no big waves so no worries about being knocked off the kayak. You’ll learn about the cove as you make memories. Very enjoyable, can’t wait to do it again during the summer

Staff are cooperative, friendly and attentive to the safety of all members. It was our first time kayaking and we enjoyed it so much. Although we went in the water about 30 min late, so we spent only about 60 min kayaking and it’d been much better if it was the 90 mins as described.

Carter was very entertaining and helpful as a tour guide. He was informed on a wide range of topics related to the La Jolla ocean preserve, from its ecology and geology to its history and politics.

I had a first wonderful experience with my wife. Had lots of fun kayaking in the water. Tour guide ryan was very informative and humorous which made the experience more joyful.
