Our guide Walker was just great with lots of info about the sea lions and the boats. We didn't realize we were going to be paddling inside a marina which made for easy paddling. But just different than we thought the photo depicted. Looking now it does look like a dock.

Excellent tour through the marina. We got to see a handful of sea lions and enjoy a nice day on the water. Walker was an exceptional tour guide that helped us understand the equipment and feel safe the entire time. I brought my 60 year old parents and they were able to easily navigate the waters on a tandem kayak

One of the best memories from my LA trip! I booked this tour as a single participant and we had a small group of four people total. Stephen was our guide and he was absolutely amazing! He is very knowledgeable about the area, wildlife and even told us some cool stories about the local boats. I was able to get the equipment (a single kayak) that I initially requested. The paddle on the way out was easy as we were going with the current, on the way back it was a little bit harder but I expected some kind of a workout and Stephen also informed us about that, so it felt perfect overall. We spotted multiple sea lions enjoying themselves on the docks and were able to take a few cool pics with our phones. We also saw a few huge beautiful yachts in the main channel. I can recommend this experience to everyone who loves animals as this is a prefect way to see them in their natural habitat. Very peaceful and worth to do experience.
