There are a few folks down in La Jolla Shores who all offer kayak tours, and they all use the exact same boats, launched from the exact same beach and paddle out to the exact same caves and seals. Don't worry about not seeing something be virtue of who you hire. But this is the business you want to support. Seemed like everyone working there grew up in the area, had great local knowledge, and they all genuinely enjoy their jobs. When we first stepped into the shop, more than one person greeted us, asked our names, offered to get all our gear and helped us get ready. Same for the end of the day when we came back wet and sandy.
Specific props go out to both Josh and Jackson, those guys were so friendly and engaging, really knew their stuff, and made it a great day. They paid the same amount of attention to 8 year olds, newlyweds and retired folks. Josh even brought his phone along and took pictures of / for everyone and then texted / air dropped them.
Keep in mind that these folks do not control the weather nor the tides. If it's a rough day, I would imagine they will do their best to show you a fun experience, and keep you safe.
We will definitely be back. Thanks, La Jolla Kayak!
