One of our experienced guides will take you on an unforgettable tour of the ecological reserve -- home to a thriving marine ecosystem that boasts one of the highest concentrations of sea-life in all of California. On The Original Seven Sea Cave Tour, you’ll paddle out and see the Rose Canyon Fault line. Enjoy one of the only sea lion colonies in California that pups on the mainland. Experience La Jolla’s Seven Sea Caves including the breathtaking view from inside Emerald Cave and enjoy California’s only north-facing cave wall. Throughout the year, kayak tour guests also witness the biggest Leopard Shark migration in the world! Leopard Sharks are harmless bottom dwellers with a mouth the size of a quarter, so they won’t bite you.
After enjoying the beauty and wonder of the caves you’ll head out and explore the giant kelp bed, an underwater rainforest that helps keep the waters calm and flowing with sea life. Sea lions and sometimes even dolphins will swim by as you paddle around. Then you’ll head back towards the shore and likely catch a wave in!
