Thinking of kayaking in Coronado?

While kayaking in Coronado might seem desirable, in reality it might not be! Aside from the view of the Coronado Bay Bridge, the bay is murky and full of aquatic traffic in and out which makes it borderline dangerous! Instead, explore the La Jolla Ecological Reserve on a kayaking adventure! You’ll have the chance to see the beauty of La Jolla and it’s rich marine life, and explore inside the Clam Cave; one of La Jolla’s Seven Sea Caves.

Watch sea lions sunbathing on the rocks, and see our California State fish, the bright orange Garibaldi, swimming under your kayak in La Jolla Cove. On the way back you’ll have the opportunity to surf your kayak back to shore.

Throughout the tour, your guides will be making sure you’re safe and having fun. No experience is required, and safety is our primary concern. Entry into the cave depends upon the ocean and weather conditions, but is just one small part of this amazing tour. Either way, you'll have the ability to enjoy and learn about the natural beauty of La Jolla Cove!

Coronado is a popular vacation city in San Diego County. The first documented sighting of Coronado Island was in 1602 by Sebastián Vizcaíno, a Spanish explorer. It remained uninhabited for nearly three centuries, until two men rowed to the island to catch rabbits. They decided that the island would be the perfect location for a resort hotel, and began to build the Hotel Del Coronado. The Hotel Del is a world-famous resort that is both a California Historical Landmark and a National Historical Landmark. Guests have included actors and actresses, heads of state, and 16 U.S. presidents.

If you’re looking for the Coronado mall, the Coronado Plaza with its 147 shops and restaurants can be found just off the SR 75 highway a short distance from the Coronado Bridge. The island also has plenty of boutique shops with everything from books to jewelry to gourmet olive oils.

Coronado beaches are popular for water sports and adventures. Things to do in Coronado San Diego include jet skiing in the San Diego Bay and SCUBA diving in the kelp beds. Coronado CA is also a popular location for renting bicycles, powerboats, fishing boats, and sailboats. If you’re looking for a tour, there are plenty of options in Coronado, including bike tours, segway tours, trolley tours, and a walking tour led by an arborist to learn about all of the trees in the area.

If you’re on the island looking for a nice meal, check out Little Frenchie Coronado, a French fine dining restaurant that opened in May 2019. There are also tons of restaurants that overlook the San Diego Bay and the Coronado beaches, with choices ranging from BBQ to sushi (and fast food chains for anyone looking for a quick, cheap restaurant).

Coronado has been called home by many notable people. Scott Weiland of the Stone Temple Pilots and Velvet Revolver, and Tina Weymouth of the Talking Heads have both lived on Coronado Island. Author L. Frank Baum lived in Star Park in Coronado, and wrote The Wizard of Oz on Coronado Island.
