Laguna Beach Kayak Tour with Sea Lion Viewing

Select Date and Travellers

    What to Expect
    Experience the mind-blowing beauty of the Southern California coastline from ocean to harbor to bay. You will launch out of Fisherman’s Cove, one of the calmest, wave-protected coves in Laguna Beach, then paddle the North Laguna coastline, teeming with marine life in its crystal clear waters. You’ll see hidden reefs where bright orange garibaldi fish swim just beneath you, and giant starfish attach to the rocks. You’ll explore the expanding and magnificent kelp forest, growing up to a foot a day, and enjoy views of Main Beach and the hidden coves and beaches of North Laguna. And you’ll get up close and personal with a colony of sea lions at Seal Rock, a nature sanctuary. All instructors are all experienced watermen and women who will share their love of the ocean with your group.

    This guided tour is the perfect group activity to keep everyone together in an inclusive, exhilarating activity that promotes teamwork, fitness and the wonder of nature. This adventure is suitable for those who can swim and have a love of the ocean.

    I’m not a great swimmer and I enjoyed it. You wear a life vest the whole time and I don’t think people capsize all that often.

    We provide tandem kayaks. However If we aren’t %100 booked on that given day, we are able to convert a kayak into a single for you upon availability. Have a great day! -Justin-
