All reviews sea lions cave store gift shop watch your head kayak tour on the rocks worth the trip natural beauty the cliff great place to visit the pacific ocean beautiful scenery take pictures san diego tunnel waves kayakers
We stopped on a recent trip through the area to the caves and headed down the stairs to the boardwalk and looked out from the cave. Be prepared to climb back up the 145 (I think it is) stairs to the top.
While you have to pay to actually go down to the caves, you can view them from the area to the side of the cave building. There are tons of sea birds there to watch and sea lions and seals close by. Definitely worth stopping...More
Wonderful Scenery, and long Palm Trees, greenries everywhere.
Good to see Sea Lion from inches.
Beautiful extended Beaches around the area.
Small Caves extended the Beauty.
If you go where Sea Lions are there, you will need to face bad smell around that...More
Such a slight to see and allow your mind to image how places like these form. The history that you read before really helps paint a picture on just how much work it took to create the path to get down there. Will continue to...More
Longhand-dug tunnel with LOTS of stairs takes you down to the Ocean. (Same upward route takes you back to the gift shop.) A huge sea lion was sleeping/posing on a rock at the water's edge. Not much of a "cave tour" but the history is...More
just amazing! the views coupled with the seals/sea lions in nature is a must see when in the area. check out sunny jims cave when in the area to walk into a cave and see the area from a different point of view.
A small cave just up the road from the cove. It costs a few dollars to get in and you are only there for 30 minutes. One cave going down 145 narrow stairs you reach a large opening, it’s quite cool and if you have...More
See the caves from the water on a kayak tour or from above by visiting the cave store or walking out on the cliffs. They are beautiful either way! The sea lions love the caves so keep an eye (or ear) out as you may...More

There are several companies operating Kayak tours. You can check under "Activities" on Trip Advisor or Google Kayak Tours La Jolla. Several operate year round, though sometimes only on weekends in the winter. It can be cold, though and this winter is much more rainy than usual -- so check the weather and dress accordingly! (By the way, the tour companies say they take tours of the caves. The kayak's don't go into the caves. They go past a number of shallow caves and usually stop outside and peer into the big cave. If you are kayaking on your own -- you can go through the cave (only about 30 feet wide) on one side and come out the other BUT, on weekends there will usually be a lifeguard or kayak company employee telling you you can't (because the don't want the tours going through so they just exclude everyone) and, if you're doing it on your own -- do not enter if water levels are low or if there is any sort of surge. It can be very dangerous! You should only attempt it in flat water where the cave rocks are well covered by water and when there is no surge. And even then it is not for amateurs! Have fun.
