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.

Have never kayaked ever before. The day was perfect and minimal wind, so it was very easy to kayak to the caves. The guides are right there with you the whole way if you run into any trouble. You meet at a cute store with stylish souvenirs and then walk to the beach with your gear in hand. You DO GET WET! So dress appropriately! Would recommend!

This was a fantastic tour 10/10 recommend! Cody was awesome, kind, knowledgeable about the area and sea life, and had a great sense of humor throughout. While other companies went out with crews of 20+ kayaks, ours was only 4, and Cody actually got snorkel gear on to push our kayaks into the caves to explore- no other company was doing that. Definitely go with them!

The water was very good. The commute to and from the office to the beach is inconvenient, particularly for kids. The cave is not really special. Only spent a couple of minutes inside. The guide was very good and friendly. Overall was a good experience. Next time would just tent a kayak.
