We are practically locals. I have grown up coming here for 30 years! I took my two boys out for a two hour kayak tour with Scott and it was AMAZING! Sea Lions, Red Kelp and a coast for days. Beyond amazing. Could not recommend more!!!

Absolutely fantastic company to deal with - we had 7 children ranging in ages from 8 to 18 out for a surf lesson and the guys were brilliant. They made sure our children had the best time. The two instructors - I cant say enough good things about them. They were friendly and fun and kept all the kids safe.... More

Kayaking in Laguna Beach was simply fabulous. Our guide Ali made us feel knowledgable and safe while launching in the surf and paddling the reefs. It was a great experience all around and I just kept saying all weekend - I am ready to go again!

Doug, our instructor was fantastic! My husband and I signed up and Doug made sure we had a great experience paddle-boarding. He changed our location given the winds/waves and stayed with me while I struggled a bit on how to steer myself around. We saw dolphins and the other folks saw seal lions - it was a great way to...

My daughter and her friend took surf lessons at La Vida Laguna, Laguna Beach, California. We had a great experience. Doug, our instructor, was very supportive and encouraging. The girls not only had a blast but had success getting up on the boards. We would definitely go back.

We had a GREAT time kayaking today through the tour company La Vida Laguna. Primarily because of our two guides Scott and Ali. Scott and Ali made it SO informative and SO entertaining! Ali and Scott could lead a group of 4 or 100 and everybody would come away raving. They are genuinely nice guys and pro's!!! THANKS GUYS!!!

Booked a kayak tour for 2 at 10 am on a weekday. Our guide Danny showed up right on time, gave us some pointers on kayaking techniques, and we were in the Pacific in no time. Had a blast on the water for about 1.45 hours, but expect to get wet and use alot of energy (bring water)!
