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!

This main cave we visited and saw while walking along the Cove is a main attraction for the kayaks and the sea lions. Multiple cliffs to walk on as well

Interesting place to visit. There are organized kayak tours. I would highly recommend La Jolla Caves even if you are a local.

Very interesting and easy caves to kayak in. Best if you go with a guide. It can get difficult if the waves startup.

Not sure what people are paying 5.00 for, but we walked down to a cave area here for free. Was beautiful. Yes, you smell sea lions and seals but for us, we didn't care, as they were too much fun to watch. The whole area is beautiful, esp at sunset. You can view the tide pools, animals, cliffs and caves... More

Great view if you can stand the smell! It is beyond comprehension that the city has failed to address this stench and has allowed the seals and sea lions to over populate and ruin it for humans.

Lots of sea lions, in the caves and on the beach. They lie there fully or half asleep just like most of us. So we felt right at home!
