Fun day exploring the sea caves of La Jolla
Gregory_U, Aug 2022
Our guide, Dillon, telling stories about historic and interesting happenings in La Jolla and around the caves. Also the kayaking, the caves, sea lions, and birds around us made it a memorable day!
A workout but worth it
Taylor_L, Aug 2022
On our tour date the waves were (unusually) intense but our guides made us feel safe and prepared. They gave us some interesting facts along the way and were pretty funny. We got lucky and saw three dolphins on the way and also baby sea lions inside the cave! It was better than I expected. Thank you Zoey and Cameron!
Kayaking for birthday
Shontrice_C, Aug 2022
First time kayaking was a bit tiring but thankfully we didn’t flip (biggest fear about going). Lots of Sea lions ! Time went by incredibly fast! It was a nice way to spend a birthday without spending a lot of money. Tour guides Jacob and Anthony were extremely kind and entertaining.
Great experience

This was a Anniversary present for my son and his wife. They really enjoyed it. Loved seeing all the seals. Wished they had a little more time in the cave but it was fine. They said they would definitely recommend it.

LaJolla 7 caves Kayak Tour with Kaelen & Brittani!
joanieconley, Aug 2022
We really enjoyed our Kayak Tour of the La Jolla 7 Caves with Kaelen & Brittani! What a team! They guided us safely through the waves & the caves! They were engaging, informative & knowledgeable about ocean Kayaking & the Marine life of LaJolla Reserve. Wish we could have gone into more caves but there were so many Kayakers, Snorklers, swimmers around the caves we were grateful we could go into one. Highly recommend this team & the Bike & Kayak, Inc. tour experience!
Everyone was just great...
