We went kayaking for 90 minutes and it was a work out and a lot of fun all at the same time. Our tour guide Jonathan was great. Very knowledgeable of the area and encouraging out on the open water. Ocean kayaking was on my bucket list and I'm so glad we did it with La Vida Laguna.

Can't miss just for the enjoyment of kayaking on a beautiful day. Felt a little rushed, not much down time to just enjoy. We kind of zig zagged looking for something to see which was ultimately a little tiring, like they hadn't scouted where we were going. But definitely a fun activity.

This was my first time in a sea kayak (despite living 5 miles from the ocean lol). The tour leader Doug is a Laguna Beach resident very well versed in the history of the area. He's both organized and chill and clearly loves what he does. Took good care of all of us making sure we knew how to stay... More

My son and I books a surf lesson with La Vida Laguna. It was our first time surfing as we are from Pittsburgh, pa. I found them to be easygoing to work with and very accommodating to our needs. Ryan, our instructor did an excellent job. He was personable and knowledgeable. My son, who is 11, really enjoyed Ryan as... More

As a newcomer to paddle boarding I was provided with a quick and friendly lesson (roughly 15 minutes) and subsequently had a great time on the ocean. Thanks to La Vida Laguna for a great time!

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!
