Whale Watching Kayak Tour

Whale Watch Kayak Tour (858) 454-6195

ONLY AVAILABLE – from November 15th to March 1st

Grey Whales provide kayakers with Everyday California once-in-a-lifetime opportunities when leaving the waters of the Arctic and heading south to the lagoons of Mexico. The natural boat launch in La Jolla provides the only place kayaks can safely enter the Pacific Ocean all winter. Seeing super pods of dolphin and gray whales off a kayak is something very special.

Our guides will push every kayak safely through any waves that exist, but it is common for the conditions to be lake like. We will paddle past La Jolla’s Seven Sea Caves and about two miles out, which will put us directly in the path of the whale migration. Our expert certified kayak guides know the best spots to view gray whales, and will be offering interesting facts and history about the surrounding area and marine life along the voyage. The tour takes two hours.

*The whale watching kayak tour is excellent for all ages and all skill levels. Being able to swim is not required.

ONLY AVAILABLE – from November 15th to March 1st

The two-hour experience begins November 15th and runs until the middle of March. The annual migration is the largest migration of any mammal. The average grey whale will travel the distance to the moon and back during its lifetime. Besides whales, Everyday California kayakers interact with Sea Lions, Harbor Seals and Common Dolphins as well. The bottom-feeding Grey Whale stirs up the nutrient-rich waters, attracting large pods of dolphins and birds such as the California Brown Pelican, the Western Gull and the Brandt’s Cormorant.

Some things to look for while on your whale watching kayak tour:
Breaching - When a whale leaps out of the water and falls back into the ocean with a thud. Also know as cresting.
Spouting - Heart shaped puffs of mist from the spout or blowhole. You can often tell the size of a Gray by the height of the spout.
Spyhopping - When they raise their head and hold position partially out of the water as if to look around. This can last for minutes!
Fluking - When their tail breaks the surface.
