We rented two individual kayaks for the morning and headed out to the caves with the watermap (several areas are prohibited including the caves and swimming areas). We floated around the only cave accessible for kayaks (only allowed with a guide). The cave is nothing special so we did not miss floating through. Really amazing is the cove next to the cave, packed with all kinds of birds including seagulls, pelicans, cormorants and some others, and seals lying on the rocks. The smell is deadly (accumulated dropping) but floating right next to the animals is quite a trip. We then headed towards the Scripps pier en spotted some playing seals. We carefully floated towards them and soon found ourselves in their midst. They played for half an hour of so around us (with a frequent peak at us) and then disappeared. At no point did we feel uncomfortable or unsafe, but we made sure not to paddle towards them too close. That was a thrilling experience!
