What you'll do

PLEASE READ - I'm a new company, rent gear from Everyday CA & coordinate our tours. Almost every weekend &/or holiday our tours are completely booked, even if the Experience states there's room. If you're interested & booking a day or few days before the date, holiday or weekend please message me first.

Our GUIDES will take you on an unforgettable tour of La Jolla Ecological Reserve, an MPA (Marine Protected Area) — home to a thriving marine ecosystem that boasts one of the highest concentrations of sea-life in all of California as an ASBS (Area of Special Biological Significance). Explore 3 distinct microhabitats in what the Kumeyaay Native Americans named Woholle or “the land of holes”. See the Rose Canyon Fault Line & experience the famous La Jolla’s Seven Sea Caves. Throughout the summer months you’ll see the biggest Leopard Shark Aggregation in the world. In the winter, witness Gray Whales on their annual migration from Alaska to Baja California.

During spring/ summer the sunset tours are unavailable due to daylight savings.

Boats are tandem (2 people per boat) kayaks. We only go into ONE cave, cave entry is dependent upon weather & water conditions entirely. Be ready for a fun filled & wet adventure either way. Tours are suitable for almost everyone 5+.

I am a San Diego native, yogi & marine science nerd. I have led countless kayak, snorkel & diving adventures all around San Diego. If I'm not in the ocean surfing, diving or snorkeling I'm near it weather it be exploring hidden sea caves at negative low tides, seeking tide pools, lobster hoop netting or educating myself all about it. I love sharing unique experiences with those who have similar passions. Not many people know of the amazing marine life San Diego offers, that's why I'm here!

Fun workout! Great view. But you don’t get to go in the caves unless you pay. Fun experience just cheaper on Groupon and make sure have nothing planned afterwards because they started 20 min late. Also booked it at a earlier time and had to change times due to air bnb not letting them link calendar or something

The kayaking was honestly the best thing I’ve done! Super fun being out on the water and seeing some sea lions and learning about everything.

Loved the experience! They sell Dramamine at the shop if you need it. Did not work for me haha I still got sick but the experience was still worth it! We didn’t get to enter the caves or see any wildlife when we went, which was a bummer but we knew that there was no guarantee of that as it’s described in the description. Overall, great experience and I recommend!
