My wife and I were fortunate enough to have a guided trip with Omar, who shared his extensive knowledge of both the La Jolla Cove and the surrounding neighborhoods we could see from the water. He was extremely helpful in his instructions both getting out past the break and returning, which was key as we saw a number of kayaks flip coming in. All in all a memorable adventure.

Tour was great...friendly staff, well organized, easygoing, and fun! Saw lots of wildlife. Comfortable pace of tour, we did a fair amount of paddling but it was split up nicely not to feel too difficult. Recommend going in singles unless you and your paddle partner are super in sync!

We had a great time! The guides were knowledgable about not only the fish in the ocean, the mountains landscape, and the caves.

Myself and my two teenage girls went out with two guides and two couples. We really enjoyed it. The guides were very friendly, funny and informative. While it does take some strength to row, it's not an extreme effort. The girls did fine in the kayak together, and I did fine by myself. We got to see some wild life and go inside the cave. We'd certainly do it again, and recommend the tour. The only problem we encountered was parking. Be very prepared to walk 2-3 blocks to get to the place, so arrive early. Other than that, you'll have to walk a little ways to the beach, so if your feet are sensitive, bring water shoes. Ultimately, it's worth the trip and time.

Great guides, great views. So much fun to be out on the water and get some background on the houses, the environment, and efforts to keep the ocean there pristine. The cave was interesting thought not really a focus. If the water is rough don't expect to go in since the guides have to guide you in by swimming in-between two boats. We went in and were greeted by two seals about 10 feet away on a ledge. Worth the time and would do it again.

We had a great time with a great tour guide.To Kayak in the cove was really beautiful and a unique experience. Our guide, Dawood, really spent time and effort making sure we all were informed and involved in the experience. His enthusiasm about the natural diversity and beauty was great. He was respectful and friendly . I brought 2 teenage boys and we all had fun. It was a memorable experience.
