What's included

  • According to National Geographic, these migrating groups are "often spotted" along the West Coast. As you paddle, guides will discuss gray whales and additional marine wildlife you may encounter during the tour, including dolphins, sea lions, harbor seals, sea turtles, garibaldi fish and a variety of birds.
  • Tours launch daily at 9 a.m. and noon, and typically take place in a double kayak, which seats two people. Buy two vouchers to take the tour with a friend.
  • Alternatively, you can redeem this voucher for the La Jolla Seven Sea Caves tour, closer to shore.

It would have been good if I had a motor on my kayak. :)

place was good I just couldnt sit down for long periods and row due to leg and back problems. I was also a single person in the kayak but cant blame them for that.

these guys were super friendly. we booked the snorkeling tour with them through the travelzoo voucher. once there, we asked if we could add on the kayaking tour and although they were booked, they were very nice and found a way to accomodate us. we were there from out of town and it really was one of the highlights of our trip.

nothing. they were great.

My husband and his friend were less than thrilled by the "tour" given. As a more experienced kayaker, he felt it was crowded and that he spent most of his time avoiding people that had no clue what they were doing.
