Kayak over to look at cliffs…and some caves. Everything viewed from quite a distance. Not interesting or engaging…I would not do this tour again.


We had a wonderful time kayaking! The crew members throughout the whole store were very helpful and friendly! Our tour guides Brody and Collin told us lots of interesting facts show us many things . We would recommend everyday California!


Good tour management and friendly helpful counter staff and great tour guide. Very nice scenery, very good explanations from the guide. First time ocean kayaking, please be careful that it is totally different from lake or river water, the wave can be quite high at some point. My husband got bad seasick ( in the wave up and down up and down and very up very down none stopped ) which we never expected it would’ve happened as he does so many many kayaks… The tour guide was very helpful and tied our boat with his then we can make it back to the shore quicker. Thank you very much!!


I have mixed feelings about this tour. On the one hand, it was fun, fulfilling, and aptly run by our guides Keagan and Alex. On the other hand, I thought they played it too safe (definitely get not going into caves because waves high and we were all newbies), but many other inexperienced groups got a lot closer to the caves than we did (not sure why). Tour is well run overall, but too many emails (especially marketing ones) and the 30 minute check-in rule beforehand is not enforced. As for hints, get there earlier to find unrestricted parking as suggested and consider a wet suit. Tour would benefit from a video that shows what to expect when entering and existing the water.


I have mixed feelings about this tour. On the one hand, it was fun, fulfilling, and replete with beautiful scenery and Keagan and Alex aptly handled the group. On the other hand, parts felt rushed and I felt the tour was played overly safe (I get not going into the caves. Waves were high and none of the group were experienced kayakers), but other groups got much closer than we did and they were not experienced. Tour operators should consider running a vid to those waiting for their tour to start and should enforce their 30 minute beforehand check-in rule. Tour wisely advises to look for street parking away from main street due to time limits. Start looking earlier to make sure you have no issues.


Julie & Jesse made our kayaking fantastic!! This is my 2nd time doing La Jolla Cove, always a great time. Thank you 😊


Would only want more. First time on ocean kayak and the Everyday California tour leaders and all the people there to support me from check-in to wetsuit to the cave were superlative!


Our tour guides were absolutely amazing. We booked for 4pm and at 3pm we went to ask when we needed to check in and they were able to move us to the 330 group. It was an amazing experience


The scenery is beautiful and Dani was a great tour guide. The sea Lions were basking in the sun while we floated and took it all in.

Kenzie and Trevor were amazing! Very knowledgeable and prepared, and made sure we had a great time. The sea caves were beautiful!!!
