Experience the grey whale migration from the seat of a kayak! Leaving the waters of the Arctic and heading south to the lagoons of Mexico, grey whales naturally migrate past La Jolla during the winter. We'll paddle about two miles out to the path of the whale migration, learning interesting facts and history about the surrounding area and marine life along the way. Note: La Jolla's unique natural boat launch allows safe ocean access for kayaking all year-round. This is a non polluting, non threatening and intimate way to experience grey whales, one of the most majestic mammals on the planet. We often see dolphins deep in the water as well, along with sea lions, harbor seals, and more. No experience is required and your guide will kick things off with a paddle tutorial. Note that the water can get choppy at times, even with La Jolla being one of the calmest places to kayak in California, so if you are susceptible come prepared with your motion sickness medication. *Note: Grey whales are wild animals, and although we see a large number of them during the season we cannot guarantee a sighting. La Jolla's climate and water conditions are typically pleasant in the "winter". We have wetsuits and booties if anyone is concerned about being cold. Money back guarantee: If you do not feel this was a 5 star experience, contact me after the tour.
Michael And Friends
I have loved being on the water since I can remember and pursued this passion as soon as I graduated college. With great friends, we started Everyday California, an ocean adventure company, in 2010. Our GUIDES are experts on the water and will make sure you have a memorable experience! We are permitted by the City of San Diego and SD's Lifeguard Services to operate a kayak concession in La Jolla.
Kayak/Life Vest/Helmet...Usually we ride in double kayaks. Odd # groups will ride solo, join another group or join the guide
We'll meet at Everyday California which is located just blocks away from the La Jolla Shores Boat Launch, Underwater Park & Ecological Reserve. We will kayak out to the edge of the kelp forest, a few miles out to sea, where the most grey whale encounters historically occur. Our kelp forest is also home to hundreds of other forms of sea life, so we will constantly keep a look out for dolphin, seals or sea lions, etc.
