At La Vida Laguna we offer team-building activities that bring out the best in people. Our programs are designed to put a spring in people’s steps and a smile on their faces with a variety of eco-themed, human-powered activities in the majesty of coastal Orange County. The kind of physical and invigorating activities that spark deeper connections and enhanced camaraderie.

Experience our epic coastal wilderness, pacific marine reserve, and the charming back roads of Laguna Beach, Dana Point, Newport and Huntington Beach. With La Vida Laguna corporate and group activities.

The adventure begins in our headquartered Laguna Beach, the epicenter of outdoor culture. With 25,000 acres of protected wilderness, a 7 mile protected bluebelt that is home to sea lions, dolphins and migrating whales, and the most charming, bucolic seaside village in Southern California, you have a recipe for pure fun and exhilaration.

La Vida Laguna’s original activity, and perhaps still our most popular, is ocean kayaking. It’s quite a thing to guide a human powered craft in this majesty of nature, so close to the surface, seeing, hearing and smelling the vital essence all around. We meet at a hidden beach that is wave protected and therefore easy to launch and land. And once outside, paddling this coastline is an experience your colleagues won’t soon forget. Laguna’s coastline is filled with cliffs, secret coves, caves, and reefs, not to mention some of the most dramatic homes in the world. With pristine, clear water, abundant kelp beds (our underwater rain forest), cormorants, sea gulls and pelicans, you are enveloped in nature. Your group will be guided with every stroke, and will return more knowledgeable and passionate ocean stewards then when they began.

Want to add a more challenging stand-up paddle component? We are happy to oblige with our fleet of standup paddleboards. We can provide an exclusive paddle board lesson and tour, or combine with a kayak tour. The choice is yours. And if you want to hang out for lunch or sunset hors d’oeuvres after, we can cater a feast at the adjoining Heisler Park.

Looking for even more adrenaline for your group? How about a surf camp right from our downtown shop? We outfit you with a board and wetsuit, then walk across the street and hit the best beginner break in Laguna. Our expert instructors get a high percentage of guests up and riding on their first lesson, often making lifelong converts to the sport. After the session return to our shop to shower off, change, and perhaps hit one of the local cafes or bars to swap stories.

If you group is more the landlubber type, we offer hikes and ebike tours in and around Laguna. Our back roads electric bike tour is one of our most popular activities. First, ebike tech is super fun and a great equalizer in negotiating hills. Second, you will see the charming neighborhoods, canyons, view corridors, historic homes, and cycle through the charming downtown village. Perhaps even stop for an ice cream.

We also offer ebike tours in the neighboring communities of Dana Point, Newport Beach and Huntington Beach.

Looking for additional cardio and lower tech: how about one of our many guided hikes into the Laguna Coast Wilderness. We offer all levels of hiking, from flat to vertical, albeit none of it is technical.  This unique ecosystem is known as Coastal Sage Scrub, and receives its irrigation through marine fog. You’ll learn about native and non-native plants and wildflowers, and the payoff is exceptional: unparalleled views of the Pacific Ocean and Laguna coastline while feeling invigorated.

Adrenaline boosting not your thing? We offer several walking tours in downtown Laguna to include our historic neighborhoods and architecture, public art, and downtown historic core.

Finally, if you are staying at an area hotel and want to engage the whole group in teambuilding challenges, we have designed several activities and games that can be staged on virtually any beach at any resort, and can scale to any size. Here is a partial sampling:

-Shipwrecked (our proprietary “Survivor” type game)

-Beach Olympics

-Treasure Hunts

-Drum Circles


-San Sculpture


-Plein Air Art

-Glass Blowing

-Volleyball Clinics

-Beach Soccer

-Foot Races

In addition we offer a special “Mindfulness” sampling that includes meditation, walking, sound bath, aromatherapy, crystal therapy, and gratitude circles. It’s an exceptional program for busy professionals to have tools to calm the nervous system and reach optimal performance.
