Had an amazing time with La Vida Laguna today. The best kayaking trip I've ever done. We saw a pod of Dolphins incredibly close to us, including a calf. Our guides were great and let us paddle freely, but were also very helpful. We also experienced excellent weather and the tandem kayaks were fantastic.

My granddaughter and I went on a Sea Kayaking trip one morning and then the next day on the Aliso & Woods Creek Park Bike Ride. Both were excellent; great guides, good equipment, good itinerary and everything well planned and executed. I can recommend them without reservation.

AWESOME SUP lesson with Keith & Doug. Their relax teaching demeanor made me courageous on the deep part of the ocean. Thanks for a fun Saturday!

The surfing instructor seems nice and helpful, but he told my kids that it was done after less than 1.5 hours although we signed up and paid for 2 hours! It was a little bit disappointing as the kids were excited, but the time was cut short until I happened to walk to the surfing spot and asked the instructor... More

We were looking for a fun family experience that our teens would love and this was just amazing. We did a Kayak trip on Sunday that we all joined and then Monday the kids (14 & 18) took a surf lesson. We highly recommend this group, especially Ryan for the surf lessons.

This is a fun ocean activity for any skill level, it's great for out of town guests. Our guides were very nice and knowledgeable. The kayak trip isn't very intense so just about anyone can do it. You get a great view of Laguna and if you are lucky and looking closely you may see some animals in the water.... More

Had an amazing time kayaking with my family of 6 in the Pacific Ocean. La Vida Laguna always does an outstanding job giving us memorable experiences. This was our 4th summer with them.
