Did this while on vacation in San Diego. Was definitely a highlight. Got to see dolphins playing right by the kayaks, seals and leopard sharks (harmless). Guides were friendly and informative. Great experience, overall.

Had a great time getting out on the water. Was mine and my bf’s first time kayaking on the ocean, Trent and Tyler gave great directions and lots of facts about the area.

It was a great experience. Pack your patience with you because there are other tours trying to see the same spots you are going to see. I loved every part of it.

All the staff was so friendly and professional. The guides were very knowledgeable. We had a great time.

Tour guide max was really cool and helpful! Got to go in one of the caves, and kayaked about two miles.
