La Jolla Sea Caves and Ecological Reserve Kayak Tour

With no experience needed, you can kayak the La Jolla sea caves and ecological reserve with an amazing array of scenery and wildlife you can`t find anywhere else in San Diego. As you kayak alongside your expert naturalist guide/instructor, expect a great chance to see sea lions, dolphins, harmless leopard sharks, seals, and an abundance of fish and sea birds. You will launch from La Jolla Shores, kayak through the incredible rock formations and caves if conditions permit, through the expansive kelp forests and cap it all off with a kayak surf ride back to the beach. Every season offers a new set of wildlife to get to know and San Diego`s mild year round climate makes kayaking a great choice any time. Friendly and accommodating guides are expert naturalists with backgrounds in marine biology, ecology, environmental science, photography, and outdoor recreation. The guides hold advance certifications in kayaking instruction, outdoor leadership, wildlife education, and CPR/First Aid. Kayaking is fun for all ages! No experience necessary. Guides are happy to teach.
