With La Vida Laguna’s eco-kayak tours, you can count on one thing: the best natural mood elevator in town from a work-out you can taste, touch, hear, smell and see that leaves you pleasantly pooped but ready to ride the tide anytime soon.
— The Laguna Beach Independent

We launch out of Fisherman’s Cove, one of the calmest, wave-protected coves in Laguna Beach, then paddle the North Laguna coastline, teeming with marine life in its crystal clear waters. You’ll see hidden reefs where bright orange garibaldi fish swim just beneath you, and giant starfish attach to the rocks. We’ll explore the expanding and magnificent kelp forest, growing up to a foot a day. You’ll enjoy views of Main Beach and the hidden coves and beaches of North Laguna. And we’ll get up close and personal with a colony of sea lions at Seal Rock, a nature sanctuary. Our instructors are all experienced watermen and women who will share their love of the ocean with your group.

You may not think bicycling is the best way to see Laguna, given the hills and traffic on PCH but I am here to tell you it is a great way to experience Laguna.
