      Highlight of Laguna!
      Everything was managed so well - clear communications on where to pick up, the guide (Jason) could not have been any better (he knew so much about the area, pointed out so many great things along our tour, always made sure I was comfortable/ok), and bonus that we got to see a baby humpback whale crest out of the water!!! Highly recommend this trip/tour!

      Great Surf Lesson, Great Instructor
      Jake at La Vida Laguna was a great instructor for my son and his friend. They had surfed on the east coast a few times, and Jake showed them west coast surfing at it's best. We were running late, and Jake was patient, and understanding when we got there, was great with the boys and gave them an awesome memory.

      Kayaking in Laguna
      Great time on the water with our party of 10 including 4 children, a teen and a senior. Wonderful instructor. The water was calm and a seal made an appearance in the kelp. Enjoyed it and would have liked to spend even more time here.

      Laguna Kayak Tour
      My sister in law was visiting from NJ. We had a perfect day of clear skies and water. She has a fear of sharks and felt safe and relaxed in the hands of our knowledgeable guide.

      Fabulous guided sea kayaking activity
      We spent 1.5 hours out on the ocean at Laguna beach with the La Vida Laguna team on our recent family holiday. With two young kids (7 and 10) we weren't sure how it would be, but we had a great experience exploring the natural features in the area and getting educated on the sea habitat, exploring giant sea kelp, chasing a stampede of dolphins and finding lots of seals relaxing in the kelp. Highly recommended for a family activity in the area!

      Great time in Laguna with La Vida
      We were traveling on a girl's trip and wanted to explore. We were recommended to La Vida by the Laguna Montage. We did the kayaking and Ebike tour on two separate days. Great excursions and a great to see the area by land and sea!

      2nd surf lesson with la vida laguna did not disappoint!
      this surf and outdoor adventure company is phenomemal! i came back for a 2nd surf lesson with friends in tow. the tide was high that day, eliminating the possibility for a lesson at their usual morning time. but they were so kind and took us out 1 hour earlier so that we could make it work while we were in town. as always, hunter is the best instructor! patient, kind, encouraging, and focused solely on getting you up and on the waves.

      Authentic California surfing experience!
      My 11yr old son had such a great experience learning to surf from Hunter. The beach spot was a great location and the surfers did an awesome job teaching. My son got up quickly and had a blast! We would highly recommend!

      Surf Lesson
      Hunter with La Vida Laguna was an amazing surf instructor! It was my first time surfing and swells were larger than normal but I wanted to surf. Hunter walked me through each surf step and made sure I caught the right waves for my level of experience. It was so fun, I had a blast! Highly recommend.

    I had some out of town friends visiting. So I decided to book this tour. Perfect tour. We kayaked from Heisler Park to Emerald Bay and back.

    We got out to snorkel and saw baby leopard sharks at SmithCliffs cove.

    Incredible day. The staff were amazing.

    They even took great photos and sent them to us at the end.

    Will definitely rebook when friends are back in town.

    Our family of four had a great time on the kayak tour with Jeff. He was knowledgeable about the sea life, the Laguna area and of course kayaking. We went with our two young children, ages 3 & 6, and we all had a wonderful time.

    Crew made for a fun excursion. They helped share knowledge and point out the seal that most of us would have missed sleeping in the kelp. Good time!
