All reviews sea lions cave store watch your head gift shop kayak tour on the rocks waves crashing fun to watch worth the trip natural beauty the cliff beautiful scenery the pacific ocean marine life san diego tunnel smell
The cave was pretty cool But one has to be careful because the rocks are slippery and you can easily injure themselves, however the surroundings are spectacular with the beaches and the seals at this time of season
This is a great place to simply take in the beautiful shoreline along La Jolla and it's neighboring communities, or go all out and get in a kayak to traverse the caves. Something for everyone, so you can't go wrong!
Such a cool spot with so much to do. Sea caves, beautiful shore line and ocean views and of course the seals and sea lions. Parking is a bit tricky but we found parking up the hill near the shops easier and it was just...More
Did not know about the Cave entrance that was right in the gift shop. for $5 its worth it.
You take 140 steps which is light up and the store has cameras in case anyone has an issue along the way. Then you feel like...More
While the caves are interesting, and the view is gorgeous, you are going to suffer some disappointment because it is hard to park, and there are hundreds of hotels around with lots of people. Not good. You better drive to Point Loma, or go to...More
Went through a couple of caves and got some excellent footage of them especially the cave that starts off in a store with a long stairway that was dug out by hand in the early 1900's . Worth the trip .

There are several companies operating Kayak tours. You can check under "Activities" on Trip Advisor or Google Kayak Tours La Jolla. Several operate year round, though sometimes only on weekends in the winter. It can be cold, though and this winter is much more rainy than usual -- so check the weather and dress accordingly! (By the way, the tour companies say they take tours of the caves. The kayak's don't go into the caves. They go past a number of shallow caves and usually stop outside and peer into the big cave. If you are kayaking on your own -- you can go through the cave (only about 30 feet wide) on one side and come out the other BUT, on weekends there will usually be a lifeguard or kayak company employee telling you you can't (because the don't want the tours going through so they just exclude everyone) and, if you're doing it on your own -- do not enter if water levels are low or if there is any sort of surge. It can be very dangerous! You should only attempt it in flat water where the cave rocks are well covered by water and when there is no surge. And even then it is not for amateurs! Have fun.
