La Jolla Kayak & Snorkel Tour
Join our kayak and snorkel tour where you can get up close and personal with the leopard sharks, Garibaldi, and other local fish! This guided tour is a combination of our kayak tour of the La Jolla sea caves, and a snorkeling adventure. Take advantage of this rare opportunity to snorkel with the harmless leopard sharks, as they are only visible for a few months each year!
Snorkeling in La Jolla is made easy by taking snorkel gear aboard the kayaks. Paddle toward the sea cliffs and caves, where you'll strap on your snorkeling gear and explore the underwater world within the La Jolla Ecological Reserve. The sea caves, sea lions, leopard sharks, Garibaldi, and shovelnose guitarfish make this kayak and snorkel adventure a must on your San Diego vacation! This is one of our favorite adventures to share with San Diego locals and visitors alike!
About the La Jolla Sea Caves
Facing north towards La Jolla Shores, the seven sea caves of La Jolla are perched within a 75-million-year-old sandstone sea cliff. The caves are named as follows, from west to east: The Clams' Cave, Sunny Jim's Cave, Arch Cave, Sea Surprize, Shopping Cart, Little Sister, and White Lady. The sea caves are only accessible by kayak, except Sunny Jim's.
What to Bring
You will get wet on our kayak & snorkel tour! You may leave a towel, dry change of clothes, and your personal belongings in our complimentary lockers. We recommend you arrive in your bathing suit, ready to go. No shoes are necessary on the kayak & snorkel tour because you'll be wearing fins. Wear lots of sunscreen. Wetsuits are included on this tour, but you will need to wear a swimsuit underneath.
As long as you can swim and are at least 10 years of age, we encourage you to come join the fun on our kayak & snorkel tour! No previous kayak experience is necessary for our kayak tours, but you must be able to swim to participate. Children between the ages of 10-14 must be accompanied by an adult in a double kayak.
