La Jolla Kayak is San Diego’s premiere ocean adventure tour company, specializing in kayak tours, snorkel tours and bike tours along the famous coastline of La Jolla.

Operating from La Jolla Shores since 1996, La Jolla Kayak provides tours of the spectacular coastal cliffs and sea caves along the seaside village of La Jolla. Our guests have the unique opportunity to paddle and snorkel among La Jolla’s famous 6,000 acre Underwater Reserve while observing the stunning reefs and marine life native to Southern California.

Our experienced and certified crew members will safely guide you throughout your kayak, snorkel, or bike tour. If you would like to explore La Jolla at your own pace, we will provide you with all of the gear you need. We also rent stand up paddleboards (SUP), boogie boards and surfboards.

Whether you’re local or visiting we invite you to experience Southern California’s jewel coast with us!

Meet the Luscombs

La Jolla Kayak was originally founded in 1994 in the garage of native La Jollan and founder Michael Luscomb—now operating for over 27 years. He and his wife Sharon (also a native La Jollan) continue to own and operate the La Jolla Shores-based business. They provide safe, high-quality kayak and snorkel tours and kayak rentals in La Jolla Shores. Since its start, La Jolla Kayak has become known as the premier ocean exploration outfit in San Diego and the pioneer for providing kayak rentals and tours in La Jolla. Not only is La Jolla Kayak well-known for its customer service and safety, it’s also known throughout San Diego for its contributions to the local businesses, San Diego tourism, and local residential communities.

It’s so fun to provide residents and visitors alike with the opportunity to enjoy the beauty of our local waters. That’s the best part of this business.
