Our guides went out of their way to make sure we enjoyed ourselves and pointed out all of the wonderful ocean life all while keeping us safe! We... More

We rented three double kayaks. My 10 year old daughter and I were in one, my husband and 8 year old son in another and my fit mother and friend in the 3rd. We took a tour and the guides were excellent and we had no problem keeping up. They pointed out interesting facts about the houses on the cliffs,... More

I went on the Kayak Tour of the 7 Caves a couple days ago, I don't usually leave reviews but I had so much fun I needed to share my experience! All of the staff was extremely welcoming and accommodating and greeted me with smiling faces and helpful tips regarding where to park, what to bring, what to wear, and... More

This review is more for the tour itself than for the operator. I assume they all face similar problems. First for the good: well organized, friendly guides, lots of support people to help you in and out of the water. The not so good: There were four of us: my wife and I are in our forties and exercise daily,... More

We made our reservation over the phone. I called and was told one price and called back to make the reservation and was told it would cost $70 more. We did eventually receive the original quoted price. Make sure to arrive early to sign waivers and complete payments if needed. Be prepared to pay for a locker to store you... More

Had a blast visiting sea lions with rented tandem kayaks. Have been to area multiple times but this was the first time kayaking from La Jolla shores. Easy check in with helpful staff after making reservations several weeks before. Beach staff were calm and not to eager to help but did eventually push us through the surf. Once reaching emerald...

This is a very well organized and well run kayak tour. They have quality equipment, and the guides are great. Our group ranged in age from 5 to 55, and we all had a great time.

Great experience. I was not experienced SUP and was with a 10 year old, started off a bit nervous. However instructor Adam was very patient and calm kept a close eye on my son so I could relax and concentrate a bit on trying to stand up. Would recommend to any beginners. Is a great activity.

Easy to book a guided tour or your own few hours of kayaking. They deliver them to the beach, and when you're finished you park them on the sand with the others. They give you a laminated map so you know what to look for and where to go. Recommended for couples and families.

Employees at the store La Jolla were very friendly. The tour guides were outstanding. We had a great time. The kayak tour in La Jolla was definitely well worth doing.
