We had a family reunion here in San Diego. We decided to do something different, so the Kayak tour of LaJolla's 7 caves sounded good. We made a reservation well in advance because we had 13 in our group.
The staff was very courteous and helpful. We got there an hour before our reservation time because parking is a real challenge in LaJolla in the summer. Then, we checked in and completed electronic forms (waivers), got our vests and helmets and went to the bathroom (in their shop). Some in our group purchased water protective holders at the shop.
We used 2 lockers-- somewhat pricey at $6.00 and $4.00 each.
Then, we walked two blocks to the beach and waited for our 2 guides.
Some of our Kayaks had a black colored soft material for a back support. Others had a firmer yellow colored back support. The black supports were terrible because they did not provide adequate support no matter how you adjusted them. This made the 2-hour trek quite uncomfortable, especially for the seniors in our group.
We were lucky because it was a somewhat overcast day. If there had been a strong sun, two hours would have been a long time on the water. Be sure to use plenty of sunscreen, a hat and sunglasses.
And if you're a senior who is not used to kayaking, this will be a strenuous adventure.
