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.

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)!

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
