One of our experienced La Jolla Caves kayak tour guides will take you on an unforgettable tour of the ecological reserve -- home to a thriving marine ecosystem that boasts one of the highest concentrations of sea-life in all of California. On our Original Seven Sea Cave Tour, you’ll paddle out and see the Rose Canyon Fault line. Enjoy the only sea lion colony in California that pups on the mainland. Experience La Jolla’s Seven Sea Caves including the breathtaking view from inside Emerald Cave and enjoy California’s only north-facing cave wall. Throughout the summer months, kayak tour guests also witness the biggest Leopard Shark migration in the world! Leopard Sharks are harmless bottom dwellers with a mouth the size of a quarter, so they won’t bite you.
After enjoying the beauty and wonder of the caves you’ll head out and explore the giant kelp bed, an underwater rainforest that helps keep the waters calm and flowing with sea life. Sea lions and sometimes even dolphins will swim by as you paddle around. Then you’ll head back towards the shore and hopefully catch a wave in!
*This tour is excellent for all ages and all skill levels. If you prefer a Private Sea Cave Tour, please tell our customer service reps. Being able to swim is not required. Tour guides determine if it is safe to enter Emerald Cave upon visual inspection.
