Sun and Sea Lions

What a beautiful summer day at La Jolla Cove! After yesterday's clouds and rain, we were luckily met with blue skies and calm water this morning. The water visibility was excellent; we could see all the way to the bottom of the rocky reef where our orange Garibaldi fish live. Once we arrive at the Clam Cave, we encountered dozens of sea lions! These playful creatures swam right underneath our boat, and we were lucky enough to capture some photos. A few sea lions joined us on the tour, floating along as we visited the different caves; others were content to sleep the day away on sunny rocks. All-in-all, a perfect day for kayaking and caving.

July Coming in Hot!!

What a weekend! It's getting warmer here in La Jolla Shores and our guides are loving it! The clarity has been phenomenal on our paddle to the Seven Sea Caves as we've been able to see the reef a majority of the way! Here is Hannah, a new member to our team this summer crushing a headstand on her kayak!! Below is a nice shot of the California State Marine Fish: The Garibaldi, which we captured on a morning adventure. Lastly, one of our returning guides, Marlie was able to spend ample time in the Clam Cave with her tour and caught some big smiles! If you haven't joined us for a paddling adventure yet, come on by!

It's been a great start to our summer in La Jolla! The sun is out and the water is warming up everyday. Our tours have been full of animal sightings, everything from a few late in the season grey whales to our usual residents: the Bottlenose dolphins and sea lions.
On our tours on calm days we have been venturing into the Devil's Slide area in search of it's summer residents, the leopard sharks. They have been coming in by the dozen, enjoying the warm water as much as us! The caves are always an adventure and it's been great to show everyone all of the wildlife that spends time there. The Brandt's Cormorants have been busy building nests and within a few weeks we should be hearing the familiar chirping of their chicks.
One of our rarest animals has been seen multiple times in the last few weeks. We love our green sea turtles in La Jolla and it's always awesome to see them them popping up to breath as they graze along the sea grass meadows. We'd love to take you out on the water and show you all the beauty that La Jolla has to offer! You can always give us a call in the shop or book a tour through our website.
