With easy access to the Pacific Ocean and world-class beaches, there are numerous cheap things to do in San Diego. However, if you want something a little more adventurous than laying on the sand or going for a brief dip in the water, look into taking a kayak tour of the sea caves in La Jolla.
La Jolla Kayak features two hour tours of La Jolla from the Shores over to the caves adjacent to La Jolla Cove. During the tour you will have the chance to soak up the warm San Diego sun while getting out on the water in one of the most scenic spots in all of California. Along the way you will want to keep an eye out in the water below to see if you can spot any leopard sharks, stingrays, seals, sea lions, or other marine life. Meanwhile, above you you can spot pelicans, cormorants, and other birds soaring gently over the ocean. The sea caves that are your ultimate goal have been carved out by the crashing waves of the Pacific for millennia and are fascinating to see from afar but are even more interesting when you get the chance to get up close to them on a kayak. Spending a day out in La Jolla exploring the amazing sea caves is one of the best things to do in San Diego no matter what time of year it is.
Tours take off from 9:00AM to 5:00PM, every hour on the hour with additional tours departing at 11:40, 1:40, and 3:40. Rental of a single person kayak is $55 while a double kayak costs $84. The first 30 minutes of your tour consists of check-in, orientation, and a fitting for lifejackets. After a short walk to La Jolla Shores, you will get in the water for a quick 15 minute lesson on how to paddle, and then you’re off. A tour guide makes sure you get to and from the sea caves safely and will gladly direct your attention to any noteworthy sea life you may encounter. One of the top San Diego things to do is exploring the sea caves in La Jolla on a kayak.
Funseekers can purchase a FunGig that includes a guided kayak tour of the sea caves. Funbassadors are able to create a FunGig that they lead via their own kayak and provide all the necessary instruction or make all the arrangements to join in on another adventure.
