Along the beautiful La Jolla coast line just a few miles north of San Diego’s beaches, travelers can indulge their curiosity of a seldom-seen side of southern California. The La Jolla Sea Cave Kayaks offers locals and visitors a chance to visit four different marine habitats within an ecological reserve. Tour guides will lead a group of kayakers—who can rent alone or as tandems—along cliffs and into sea caves, where they will encounter seals and Leopard Sharks, a docile breed. For the safety of all kayakers, two guides always take the group out: one will lead the group, and the other will follow. - Erick Pettersen
