Really nice little spot. We spent about 15 minutes down there and saw little crabs all over the rocks. We were told by the staff that sometimes sea lions can be spotted on the rocks in there but unfortunately there were none down there during our time slot. Weekend reservations seemed to book up quick so look into it before heading down there. Make sure to take hand sanitizer with you. It's very difficult to walk up and down the steps without holding onto the rails. On your way back up be sure to check the rocks on the ground near the steps. The way the water has solidified on the rocks over the years looks really cool. When we were all done and about to leave, we asked the woman who checked us in if she could give us a little more information about the cave's history which she very kindly did. Really neat little spot to check out if in the area.

We’ve been wanting to visit the cave store for a long time and we’re so glad we finally went! We made a reservation and had the tunnel and cave all to ourselves during our time slot. It was really nice! The young woman who checked us in was really nice and friendly too! The walk down the stairs was really neat and it was well worth every step! The platform inside the cave at the end of the tunnel was was very secure and provided a great setting for taking photos and taking in the incredible setting. If you’re looking for a fun, inexpensive, and very unique experience in La Jolla, this is it!

You must make a reservation online due to COVID and it is $10.00 a person payable online but well worth it

Considering what is going on with a Covid, this is a fine little family adventure for ourselves and our two boys (6 & 8). You must book in advance so you get you own private block of time (about 30 minutes). You descend from their store down into a tunnel like something out of an Indiana Jones film. Once you get to the observation deck below, you are peering from inside the cave out to the ocean. On the rocks if you look closely you'll see all kind of crabs walking around, and if you're lucky, as we were, you'll view some sea lions lounging around up close. We were within a foot. Not a bad way to spend a half hour or so, and outside in the immediate area are cliffs and paths to walk and catch the amazing views.

A great little spot! Worth about 10-15 minutes and $5 of your time to go down the 100+ steps into the sea cave and enjoy the view. It's low ceilings and a lot of short steps (they are about half the size of a regular step). There's a handrail the entire way and it's well lit, but can be wet and just have to take your time. It's one way up and one way down so you have to pass people but it's wide enough to do so without trouble. There's a nice little shop with jewelry above the cave as well. Worth your time!
