Not only do our daily lives hinge on a healthy planet, at La Vida Laguna our livelihood does too. And there isn’t a guide or instructor among us who isn’t fanatical about clean oceans. We deplore litter and clean up our beaches and water on every tour. We ask our guests to do the same. We also point out the storm drains, where tons of toxic waste are emptied into our waters after every rain. The way to prevent it? Don’t throw anything into your local sewers.
Respect the plant. We only have one.
Together as one, we can save it.
Sales of our “Help the Kelp” tees and sweats really helps the kelp – which is vital to our eco-system. 10% of sales goes to Nancy Caruso’s Kelp Project.
Marine Biologist Nancy Caruso has been directing the Kelp Project since 2002. The Project restores kelp forests by inspiring the community to be stewards of the ocean. The Project combines the efforts of 3,000 schoolchildren and 400 volunteer divers. These schoolchildren (mostly underserved) have been taught to grow kelp in portable classroom nurseries. This kelp then gets planted in the ocean by the highly trained divers. Their efforts are working! Kelp is growing in areas that have been barren for 25 years. With more than 800 different species depending on them, kelp forests are the rainforests of the sea.

Here are some other great environmental organizations we support:
Laguna Beach Full Moon Burn
If you’re lucky enough to be here on a full moon, come to our free Laguna community pageant known as Moon Burn, featuring a drum circle, fire dancers and hoopers on the beach! Or if you’d like to schedule your own drum circle for a party or teambuilding event, contact us.
We drum at Aliso State Beach from 7 – 10pm, every full moon, complete with bonfire.
If you have a drum, great. If not, don’t worry, There’s always extras. However, extra wood will instantly ingratiate you.
Aliso Beach is a few miles south of downtown Laguna on PCH, just past the Montage Resort and opposite Aliso Creek Golf Course. We meet at the south end. Just have a listen and you’ll find us.
