La Vida Laguna offers the best in stand-up paddleboarding, kayaking, hiking, biking and surfing in Laguna Beach. We do private and group tours, lessons and semi-private lessons at the best value in town. Laguna Beach has the tastiest mix of everything coastal California has to offer: Rugged and dramatic coastline, thousands of acres of wilderness, world-class surf, protected coves and beaches, abundant wildlife and unsurpassed beauty. Kayak through kelp beds alongside dolphins and sea lions, surf a reef break, paddleboard the calm, protected coves, hike the local trails or bike the sage-scented wilderness, and you are guaranteed a mood elevation.

We had a the pleasure of sea kayaking last weekend and had an absolute blast! While we did not see any whales we did see a number of seals who actually swam right alongside us and followed us for a ways. Our guide had a great attitude and was perfect at showing us around. Would highly recommend this company to... More

La Vida Laguna are very experienced guides for kayak and paddle board trips along the Laguna Beach coast. We enjoyed a 2 hour guided tour, seeing dolphins, sea lions and a variety of marine birds. Doug is very friendly and knowledgeable. We appreciated when he rescheduled our tour to later in the week because the weather made the water too... More

We were visiting from WI. I ran a 1/2 marathon in Disney the day prior to this outing. After the race I could not walk. I contacted La Vida Laguna and they were so kind. Instead of standup paddle boarding (as booked) they changed me to a kayaking tour. My cousin wanted to kayak, so last minute they added her... More

The last few years we have utilized the services of La Vida Laguna! We have paddle boarded in Newport and kayaked in Pacific Ocean off Laguna. My wife and I and the teenagers had a blast! The guides and equipment were wonderful!

We did a half day paddle with the group and it was breathtaking. Simply gorgeous paddling and the equipment was well maintained. Guide was very knowledgeable and safety-conscious. He did his best to accommodate the people who were eager to paddle more more more (us) and the laid back just want to float family also on the tour. I would... More

This was unlike anything my wife and I had ever experienced! We were able to see a large group of sea lions up close. We were able to see fish swimming over coral in crystal clear water. Over all this was an experience we won't soon forget. So relaxing.

Our 2 sons (12 and 14) had great surf lessons with this company. The equipment was fab, the teachers competent patient and kind. Having surfed in South Wales (UK) since they were little the boys were very taken with the warm seas of Laguna! So good they went back for a second session the following day. We would whole heartedly... More

The most beautiful spot along the coast, we had a great room where we could see the sea. Perfect clean, relaxing pool. The most friendly owners who even posted my left swim suit to my next hotel- so kind! They recommended wonderful local restaurants and could not have been more knowledgeable! I would recommend to anyone!
