We had an awesome time. Would love to do it again when we return to the area. Both Courtney and Nat were very knowledgeable and made the tour so interesting!
Wonderful tour. My kids really into it. Rob was best guide ever. He shared interesting history of La Jolla beach and sharing his love of sea life ,just under our boat. Stories of kelp beds are great.
We had a wonderful time and Graham the guide from Ireland couldn't have been more fun. Super easy tandem kayak, beautiful day and kits of critters to see. The inside of the cave was cool. Historically fascinating piece of LA Jolla.
What a gorgeous adventure for this first time kayaker! Our guide Nick was wonderful. Hike Bike Kayak takes small groups out as compared to other companies that were in the water at the same time as us. Our tour was much more personal and always within earshot of the guide
Great trip, we especially enjoyed visiting the cave.
Robb the tour guide was great!! My fiancé and I had a great time. It wasn't only fun but educational. Highly recommend it.
highly recommend this tour great fun, very informative and loads of wild life you can get up close to the Sea Lions.
The tour was a lot of fun. Hike bike kayak was a definite winner!
Our guide, Brian was excellent! My boyfriend and I are land-locked city kids and neither of us had any experience with kayaking. But, our guide was patient and informative, which made our excursion fantastic! I would recommend taking some Dramamine beforehand. I don't usually get sea sick, but I was not feeling well towards the end of the tour.
Lovely beach side town, kayaking tour had great sightseeing and our guide Paul filled us in on the local marine wildlife and made the tour very enjoyable. Would recommend to all even if you haven't been kayaking before.
