Full description
Discover San Diego's Marine Protected Area, home to a variety of fish, birds, dolphins, turtles, sea-lions, and whales. With the help of an experienced guide, explore the famous Sea Caves of La Jolla and kayak inside Emerald Cave. Watch sea lions sunbathing on the rocks and swimming in the sanctuary. Marvel at the bright orange garibaldi as they stand out among the vibrant green sea grass and numerous other fish swimming around and delighting the eye. In the summer and fall months, tour groups will often see harmless leopard sharks, and you may also find grey whales in their migration during the winter. You might even see dolphins cruising alongside your kayak before you make your way back and prepare to surf your kayak back to shore.

I went by myself and it was first time for me to ride kayak. I took single kayak and I didn't know how to paddle until then. But after starting to go out to the ocean by help from guides, I started to learn all of things naturally and I experienced amazing things like watching sea lions at La Jolla and it was one of my bucket list. I really appreciate to all of guides of everyday California :) especially for the two guides who taught me how to turn back and helped me by attaching my kayak to his kayak!(maybe Jack) I felt so sorry for the sea lions and guides because I couldn't control direction of my kayak easily in front of the rocks.. And if a solo beginner reads my review, I recommend you to prepare all of things like wearing waterproof clothes and preparing waterproof items for electronics in advance..!!

Kayak guides were knowledgeable about sea life and history of the area and gave a good tour. We couldn’t go in the caves because the ocean was too rough which was really disappointing. However that made getting through the surf going out and coming back in really exhilarating! That alone was an experience!

The Kayaking our group did was great. The two guides were excellent. I recommend Farmer Josh as a guide. He is Polite, Intelligent and very conscientious about safety. Gabe was the other guide and he is very good and kind. The caves I was afraid to go in because of the swells and little rapids. My husband and my daughters boyfriend went in the caves and thought it was awesome!
