About

View hidden coves and beaches as you paddle over reefs and an immense kelp forest. Along the way, keep your eyes peeled for whales and dolphins en route to a colony of sea lions at a nature observatory

Was a bit concerned with it being choppy but went for it- Fun time! We lucked out and had a guide in each kayak with us, since we were beginners that worked out perfect but not everyone gets that luxury (probably would have cancelled if we had to go in on our own). We got pretty wet since it was choppy but that made it even more exciting. Don't bring anything with you except your keys (no remotes) phones should be in a waterproof case. No one tipped over but its always possible. You go out through the surf, rocks a good distance away. Went with my son (14) he got a little sea sick on the way back but said he's do it again. (my opinion: I would reconsider with small kids). Didn't see any wildlife but can't expect that. Overall good time!

Thanks for the very thorough review. It was certainly an exciting paddle tour, however, the ocean was definitely in rare form. Most days are calm and safe for all ages (even kids). The beauty of ocean kayaking is that every day is different and wildlife is unpredictable.

Fantastic tour with a fantastic guide, thank you Justin! Loved seeing all the wildlife in their natural habitat. Justin was so calm and helpful, when our kayak flipped and a seal stayed close by watching. He even caught it on video, great memories, great times. Would do it again.

We're so glad you had a memorable time on the ocean with Justin. You deserve credit as well. Not everyone thinks to paddle on the ocean in the winter months, but to your acknowledgement - it's a magical time.

My new wife and I had the best kayak excursion on our honeymoon. We had the luck of an amazing day with both warm weather and warm water with amazingly clear water. Our guide, Jason, was a knowledgable and easy-going, which helped our group enjoy the tour even more. Jason knew everything about the marine life, surrounding area, and California history. We definitely got a good workout in but it was well worth it. Highly Recommend!

Doug and friend are a hoot!!! We had a blast paddling around (by paddling, I mean I made my partner do most of the work) the coast and seeing Laguna beach in a different perspective. He was nice enough to take photos during the kayak trip and send it us. He also gave us the low down on what’s going on in this crazy town. A must if you want to explore but too afraid to try it on your own!

Great outing! Husband, kids and I went out for kayaking and had a terrific time. Doug is a knowledgable and friendly Laguna native and gave us an interesting and beautiful tour from the ocean. We saw sea lions, birds, and kelp, and got lots of info on the beaches and history that we paddled past. Highly recommend and would definitely do it again. A+!

A little pricey, but a great experience overall! The 90 minutes flew by thanks to our guides Justin and Jack. It was really cool to get a totally different perspective on Laguna Beach and hear about the culture, wildlife, and history. Plus, our guides were able to offer valuable tips on other fun things to do in Laguna (e.g. hikes, best food, etc). My wife and I never felt unsafe in the water and we even got to go on a refreshing swim! Would highly recommend this.

Justin and Ali were the best! My mom and I had never even looked at a kayak before let alone dare trying to paddle one, but Justin and Ali made the experience safe, calm and enjoyable for us. Justin kept the jokes coming keeping it fun and Ali kept the facts coming, keeping it informational. We saw REAL sea lions and million dollar homes that sit right on the coast. This is definitely an activity worth experiencing, its really fun and calming at the same time, just make sure your upper body strength is adequate, you will be paddling for at least an hour and a half.

We had a great time on our tour, the guides were amazing in guiding us as well as telling us about the area, and I am so glad we gave this a try! The water was pretty rough near shore the day we went, and though I have kayaked a little in the past & am not uncomfortable in the water or with paddling, it was a bit intimidating to paddle out past the rocks & waves (again, guides were awesome at getting us through this). Once out there, it is really amazing- calm, beautiful views, fun! Getting back in was much easier than getting out. I had read a lot of reviews about all ages & people with no experience having no problem so I think perhaps it was just that I wasn't expecting the paddling out to be as rough. I don't think I personally could have taken my elementary aged kids with no kayaking experience out there just me and one of them in a kayak, but I do think it is an awesome activity for anyone willing to give it a go!

Thanks for taking the time to write us a review! Some days are easier than others and it sounds like you kayaked with us on a more challenging day. We appreciate your honesty and recommendations to our future customers. We are so glad you had a fun time kayaking with us this week, we hope to paddle with you again in the near future!
