Owner description: La Vida Laguna offers the best in stand-up paddleboarding, kayaking and surfing in Laguna Beach. We do private and group tours, lessons and rentals at the lowest price 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, or bike the sage-scented wilderness, and you are guaranteed a mood elevation.Welcome to La Vida Laguna, your one stop aquatic wonderland. Memories are made here. People say it’s the blue Pacific. The epic swells. The waters bloated with dolphin and sea lions. The glassy days when you gape down at 30 feet of translucent kelp beds. Or maybe just the overwhelming refreshment of dipping into a brisk Pacific that makes you feel so alive and connected to Planet Water.But we say it’s our guides. Experienced, responsible, rootsy and fun. A talented bunch of pros who’s only mission is to make you appreciate our Blue Belt as much as they do. And who count every day above ground a good day. But every day above water a better one. Get out and join us.

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 did the kayak tour with la Vida Laguna, our guide was Ali. Our family of 6 were the only people on the tour which made it even more special. Ali was a fantastic guide, friendly, knowledgeable and professional. We had a fantastic time and we even managed to see some dolphins as well as the sea lions! I would... More

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)!

My husband and I used La Vida Laguna for an afternoon sea kayak tour. Neither of us had ever been and we absolutely loved it! Tim was our guide and was awesome! He took the time to give us some basic kayaking technique instructions prior to us hitting the water. He was incredibly friendly and easy going but was definitely... More

We had the best time kayaking with Danny from La Vida Laguna. Sea lions swam right around the kayaks - and many more were sun bathing on rocks as we went by... We saw dolphins and a whale. We followed the whale for a bit and that was a blast. Danny was a great guide, we learned a lot about... More

I love Laguna Beach, it is an incredible place. I've always admired the sea life from the beach. That is until I went paddleboarding with La Vida Laguna. John took me to Seal Rock and the sea lions were jumping all around me, it was so amazing I know I had to go again. On my next trip out I... More

We had a great time surfing with Mike and Jack! They gave great instructions! All four girls got up!! They have not stopped talking about it!! La Vida is next door to Jack in the box. Bring change if you want to park on the street. They have meters that only accept coins!
