This was one of the most exciting kayak tours we have been on. We were able to go inside the caves, and on our way out, a huge wave pushed us! The guide was a little worried, but it was fun for us! The caves are neat, and the kayak tour we took was fun and organized. Be prepared to... More

The La Jolla Caves are a favorite of ours. Since we live in north San Diego County we are fortunate enough to be able to drive there often and enjoy the natural beauty of the caves and cliffs. It's always very crowded on weekends so it's hard to find a spot to park, but it's worth the hassle to enjoy... More

If you are a nature or animal lover, you must see this. Lots of wildlife and great views. It doesn't need a lot of time, but is worth the visit

We took a kayak tour to see the caves. Talk with the tour company about what time of the day they recommend going. We learned afterwards that the waves are calmer in the morning. A unique experience to see the sea lions close up and go in the 7th cave. You can also pay a small fee and climb down... More

Rent or take your kayak out to the caves and then take your turn entering the caves. Its a cool change up from paddling away in the open ocean. There is decent marine life and interesting rock formations. enjoy the caves!

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

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

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.
