What you'll do

La Jolla Bay is a Marine Protected Area that is home to a thriving ecosystem that boasts a high concentration of sea life, has a natural boat launch, which allows safe ocean entry year round, and is famous for it's Sea Caves and Marine Reserve. No experience is required. Your guide will kick things off with a paddle tutorial. If surf exists we will help push your kayak through the breakers. As we paddle through La Jolla’s Marine Reserve keep an eye out for Seals, Sea Lions, Sea Turtles, Pelicans, Cormorants, Garibaldi (Nemo's cousin), Harmless Leopard Sharks, and Dolphin. Note: We cannot guarantee sea life. If conditions are safe we will help guide your kayak into Emerald Cave. We have to kayak over and visually inspect the caves to know if it’s safe to enter. Emerald Cave is the only cave along S. CA's coast that’s safe to kayak into. Note: if not safe we will not enter and we spend a minute inside. The Winter is our guides favorite time on the water. We see more sea life, including gray whales, & conditions are still nice. We have wetsuits/booties for anyone concerned about being cold but they aren't required. La Jolla Bay is an Uncontrollable Environment. Please come enjoy this place we love knowing each day is different than the last. Satisfaction Guarantee. Do not feel this was a 5 star trip, message me. Great for families, all skill levels & all ages over 5.
