There is only one real way to enjoy the La Jolla Underwater Park Ecological Reserve - sign up with a kayaking tour company and let them take you there. Most tour providers will arrange for gear - snorkel, mask, wetsuit and fins. And once you're in the water, you're here to see the diverse marine life swimming amongst the kelp forests, submarine canyon and sea reefs. These include sea lions, leopard sharks and bright Garibaldi fish.

In addition the to the underwater park, these trip ought to also take you to the a Jolla Caves. There are seven of them, carved by water and erosion into millions of years old sandstone. One of them - Sunny Jim’s Cave - is actually accessible from land via a hand-carved tunnel. You'll need a kayak to get to the others though - The Clam’s Cave, Arch Cave, Sea Surprize, Shopping Cart, Little Sister, and White Lady. Smugglers used these caves to bring in Chinese immigrants, and later, whiskey during the Prohibition.

  • Needless to say, it's recommended that you know how to swim.
  • Bring underwater cameras.

  • Reach where you're told to by your tour provider.

  • Secret sea cave most San Diegan's don't know about! Don't go on the summer weekends unless you like crowds

  • Some of the most breath taking views on the southern California coast. Make it a point to get out here, view a nice sunrise/set and watch the seals play off the point.

  • Very beautiful!!! I suggest avoid weekends!!!

  • Great views from atop the caves. Please do watch your step as all the signs make it clear that the cliffs are unstable
