Kayaking among the famous La Jolla sea caves is an exciting adventure! The caves are situated in one of the most beautiful settings in San Diego with the cliffs of Torrey Pines State Park and picturesque La Jolla as backdrops. As an underwater marine preserve, wildlife abounds and sightings of seals, sea lions, dolphins, cormorants, pelicans, garibaldi, and gentle leopard sharks are common! Gentle waves at our launch site and a bit of swell swirling through the sea caves provide lots of opportunities to play in our kayaks! Best of all, you don't need any experience to join us! In fact, hundreds of people have gotten hooked on kayaking on this tour!
Please note that from a kayak, the combination of ocean swell and rocks is potentially extremely dangerous in certain conditions. FOR YOUR SAFETY we do not offer this tour during the months when winter storm swell commonly makes the caves treacherous. We do offer other tours in the La Jolla area however, including whale watching tours. Dangerous conditions may exist at any time of the year, and we cannot guarantee cave exploration. Aqua Adventures is the most safety-conscience outfitter guiding trips here. Our guides are the most highly trained and experienced and for your safety, we require you to wear PFD's and helmets. Have fun, be safe - kayak with Aqua Adventures!
We meet at our launch site (directions and equipment list provided with your reservation) and begin with some basic kayaking instruction.
After a brief discussion of the surf zone and ocean conditions, we'll launch and paddle to the sea caves. On the way, you'll receive instruction from your guides on the techniques you'll need to safely navigate the cave formations!
When we've finished exploring the caves, we'll have some time to surf our kayaks in gentle waves back at the beach. Our exact itinerary must remain flexible due to variable weather and ocean conditions.
