Kayak to the beautiful sea caves of La Jolla and snorkel throughout the La Jolla Ecological Reserve with a variety of marine life. Explore the beautiful sea cliffs up close and personal as we paddle to these amazing sandstone formations, and enter the water to view the stunning rock reef below.

Snorkel in the calm waters protected by the crescent shaped La Jolla Cove, and catch a glimpse of sea lions sunning on the rocks nearby while garibaldi and other indigenous fish surround you. Paddle out to the underwater kelp forest, searching for harbor seals, dolphins, and more before returning to the sandy flats to snorkel with the leopard sharks. These majestic creatures are totally harmless, and inhabit the shallow waters along the shore during the warm water months.

Take advantage of this unique opportunity to experience the best of these diverse habitats in a combined kayaking and snorkeling adventure!

La Jolla Kayaking & Snorkeling

We took part in this activity in September and enjoyed it very much. You can choose single or double kayak. The water was quite unclear so we didn't get a chance to see all the fishes described by the guide, but we've seen at least 3 kinds. And we've seen a baby sea lion! We had also the possibility to keep the snorkeling equipment for the whole day. All in all, adventure was very enjoyable and the guides very competent!

La Jolla Kayaking & Snorkeling 

4 stars

We received this Xperience Day as a gift and finally signed up. Even though we snorkel/swim the La Jolla Cove area regularly on our own, we enjoyed the kayaking and learned a few things from our tour guide, who was really energetic and friendly. We had a group of 9 with some varied experience, so sometimes we had to wait for others, but in general, we still got to go at our own pace. We did jump in and swim through a cave, but there were so much kayak traffic, that it wasn't as enjoyable as some of our other swims. Also, we showed up about an hour early because the wrong time was printed on our itinerary, but we just hung out on the beach. I would call the actual shop to confirm the times. Overall, it was a fun experience.

Kayaking Adventure Review 

4 stars

They were very good and efficent. Factors beyond their control limited our experience. Water too cloudy to snorkel and waves too large to see the caves so we mostly just paddled around and listened to ecology lecture.
