Josh was our guide on the tour. My husband and I tipped over and he was very encouraging and helpful talking us through getting back onto the kayak. He kept an eye on us throughout the tour. Unfortunately we didn't get to see any seals on seal island but Josh was an informative guide.

La Vida laguna instructors were patient, friendly and experienced. They immediately made our kids feel confident and at ease. I would highly recommend them to all levels of surfers. It was the highlight of our trip and our kids have no experience surfing.

Scott and Doug where the best guides in the open ocean!!! I was a little afraid, since I am a senior with 3 grand kids, but we felt secure and were able to enjoy the beauty of Laguna from the water! We had an amazing experience!

I had a great time, learned to paddle board, made a friend, saw dolphins, learned local lore, and got in some snorkeling in a beautiful cove. What more could you ask? Doug's a great guide and storyteller that makes people feel at ease, Im looking forward to going again!

As a complete beginner the kayaking tour from Laguna was great. I was apprehensive about getting out to sea on the boat but the guides did a great job and made it very easy getting in and out of the boat. Both guides put us at ease and had lots of interesting info about the area. Have already recommended this... More

The instructions were helpful, but know that this is rigorous, more so than the language on the website says. Also, bring your own camera as there was no one taking photos, a big disappointment given what was on a website.

It was my friend's and I first time paddle boarding. It was soo fun and the guys from La vida Laguna are so helpful. They also give you a tour and take pictures for you while out in the ocean paddle boarding.

First intro to surf-boards for mid-west adolescents. In two hours, all 3 successfully stood & rode waves. Instructor Derek was calm, patient, efficient and safety seems to be a comfortable practice with the youngest kept within an arms reach at most times. While this was a one time intro to a sport due to geography, I'd enthusiastically recommend for any... More
