From the famed Agate Street Beach to Aliso Beach Park, 1000 Steps Beach and many others, there are plenty of beaches in Laguna Beach. Summertime is all about getting out on the sand and into the surf, and Laguna Beach is the place to be for this.

La Vida Laguna Kayaking
1257 S Coast Hwy
Laguna Beach, CA 92651
Nothing says summer like getting out on the water. And, there is no better way to appreciate the natural beauty of Laguna Beach then from the ocean. After some short instructions on how to properly paddle and navigate, you will go on an co-adventure beginning at Fisherman’s Cove in North Laguna. The final destination is Seal Rock where frolicking California sea lions and a variety of shore birds hang out. On the way, you’ll paddle through kelp beds on the lookout for garibaldi fish and the guide will also show you how to “shoot” kelp bulbs, a tour favorite for kids. If you’re lucky you may see dolphins or whales.
