Walk along the shores of LavJolla

We walked along the cliffs after dinner, and watched a beautiful sunset. The sea lions, pelicans and cormorants had a lot of spectators.

Great time for the 90 minute cave tour with Everything California located on 2246 Avenida de la Playa, La Jolla, CA . The conditions didn't allow us to get close to the caves, but it was still a fun outing. The guides are friendly and shared educational and entertaining stories about the coast and its marine and human residents. Great... More

Yes, you can pay $5 and walk down the steps into the cave. Yes, that is pretty cool. But if you really want to experience the cave, grab some fins or a kayak and see it like the ancient bootleggers did, from the water! Go on a kayak tour from Everyday California and get the history and local legend. This... More

The $5.00 to travel down 100 steps or so to see the cave was worth the trip. Very interesting cave that can be reached by land, which is rare. Not everyone can make the trip however due to slippery steps.

During my trip to California this was one of my favorite experiences. We stumbled upon this whole experience. We had purchased Go Cards for San Diego and Kayaking in La Jolla was in there so we tried it. It was awesome. We took the kayak out and explored around the caves, saw some fish and looked at the sea lions... More

Enter through the cave store and walk down stairs to the cave. Low ceiling in spots. Pretty cool view at bottom. Inexpensive to do and different.

We were traveling up the coast and stopped in La Jolla to poke around. My daughter looked over the edge at the caves, the people on kayaks, and the people snorkeling and demanded that we do this. THIS was going to be THE thing she wanted on this trip (a tradition we have as long as it is within reason)... More

I went to La Jolla in March. The weather was excellent. I thought the cave was really cool. Please note though, the stairs to get there are slipppery and it's very dark.

Beautiful cove, great little town to visit and have a nice lunch at. We strolled along the downtown areas with cute little shops. A very nice place to visit.

La Jolla Caves are an excellent place in San Diego to go Snorkeling or Kayaking. I have went several times and am always amazed. I've seen leopard sharks, turtles, crabs, an assortment of fish and birds as well as sea lions. A must!
