We booked 1:30 excursion. When we got to the kayaks we were told Viator changed the time to 1:00pm. We arrived 1:10 and were told they left and it was too bad. They were booked. Waiting on a refund.

Disappointed kids.
Rory_B

First there were way too many kayaks out in the cave area (so many tour companies in the area and they all have about 15 kayaks out there at once). There was a lot of time spent sitting waiting for others to catch up. Meanwhile the guides tell lots of stories about the mayor, sandstone, etc and you are drifting into areas where you aren’t supposed to be. They keep telling you where to go but then you get there and drift again while waiting 10 minutes for others in your group. We only went in one cave and we were in it for literally 1 minute.

Sea cave kayaking
Honeymae_F

As an avid kayaker it was pretty cool to do a tour to the sea caves with expert guidance because you get a lot of the history. The guides were so knowledgeable and kind. There were a ton of sea life (Garibaldi fish, leopard sharks, green sea turtles, pelicans, sea lions & schools of small fish) that you had to look out for.

Anniversary Weekend Kayaking Trip
Andrea_S
, Jul 2022
We were running about 10 minutes late and didn’t think we’d be able to make it. The staff at Everyday CA worked fast to get us checked in and out to the beach to catch up to the group. They were awesome! Our guides Atticus (?) and Chloe were friendly, funny, and super informative. Going through the cavern and seeing the seals, sea lions, Garibaldi fish, and leopard sharks were the highlight. Definitely recommend!

When surf is rough you will not get to see the caves
Christopher_P
, May 2022
Rough surf all day, known to the rental operators, kept each tour from going into the caves. The operators must know this in advance but only tell you when you are on the water. People returning from the trip before ours told us that the waves were too high to get into the caves, even challenging to get the kayak into ocean past the waves. By all means, rent the wetsuits as we did, you will be wet!

Simone was a great guide! Kayaking was fun and Simone gave us great information about history of La Jolla and environment.

Exciting, but here is how it would be better.
Caroline_A
, Apr 2022
As an industry, these are the improvements that need to be made: Better organization during fitting, example. Inform customer how to put on wetsuit-zipper in the back, etc.,better orientation at beach, specifically safety and expectations from guides, too much kayak congestion out on water(multiple companies), tour ran over time. Most important, difficulty level is misleading.
