Have a Unique Experience at La Jolla Caves!

La Jolla Caves Snorkeling

The Underwater Park at La Jolla Caves is one of the most stunning natural features in the area, and it’s an ideal spot for snorkeling. It doesn’t matter if you’re new to the sport — there’s no better place to try it than here! La Jolla Kayak offers one of the best local snorkel tours and takes you around the caves so you can admire spectacular underwater formations. One thing is for sure: you’ll make memories for a lifetime. 

La Jolla Caves Kayaking

Snorkeling isn’t the only way to explore La Jolla Caves. If you’d rather not get in the water, you can go on a kayak tour! There’s nothing like paddling across the turquoise water, looking up to the dark, rocky cliffs, and channeling your inner explorer. Did you know that the caves used to be a smuggling spot for pirates in the 1800s? They even have unique names like White Lady, Little Sister, Shopping Cart, Sea Surprize, Arch Cave, Sunny Jim Cave, and Clam’s Cave!

La Jolla Caves Sea Lions

Another fun fact about the La Jolla Caves is that they’re home to adorable sea lions. These creatures are often seen swimming around the cliffs and sunning themselves on the rocks. We highly recommend bringing along a waterproof camera to capture their cuteness. The best time to see the sea lions is around sundown when they come out to feed!
