I attended with my sister. We were glad that we went thru Goldstar. We did two single kayaks.
Just so that no one has High expectations...you go in to a cave for a few minutes. I am not sure if this was because of the tide or if every group...continued

We had a blast! The surf was too big for us to safely visit the caves, but we may try it again some other time.<b>
We weren't sure about the morning ride, but it was the perfect time to go there and since not many people are up that early, we...continued

This was my first time kayaking, I recommend this for all beginners. Though the weather wasn't permitting to explore the caves, kayak inside, the caves, our tour guide did point out the interesting facts about the seven caves. The guide was very...continued

We had a great time. The water was like glass at 9:00 am. The plus to going early during the summer is that it is much less crowded. As the weather gets warmer and all the vactioners come in to town, it gets pretty crowded down there.

The...continued

My husband and I did the double kayak. We have been kayaking many times and have been wanting to do it locally so it was an incredible deal for the price.

Please be aware that you do not always get to go in the caves. It depends on the tides...continued

The tour guides were really nice - didn't over do it - not corny - made the adventure interesting. Wish that we could go in more caves.
We all had our own kayaks (singles) and glad we did - way more fun.

A fun day out on the water. it was cool and overcast the day we went but the guide was pleasant and informative. It wasn't as physically demanding as I was told...you could basically drift behind the group if you wanted to.

On the day we...continued

The guide - JP - was very helpful & knowlegeable about not only kayaking, but also the geological features in the San Deigo area.

Although the tide was too rough to tour the caves, we saw an abundance of wildlife & had a beautiful day. We...continued

This event was absolutely worth it. So much fun. Make sure you give yourself plenty of time to get there and get checked in. Parking is an issue and we actually missed our time. They were decent about sending us out at 10 instead. I had never...continued

Thanks to Goldstar!

I think I would have been upset by the advertising if I'd paid full price.

Don't expect to actually paddle into a cave. But do expect to get up close to sea lions and seals and possibly see some leopard sharks and other...continued

Although it was very fun...the staff was kinda rude/unfriendly...with the expectation of our tour guide "Justin" who was very helpful and very patient. The experience out on the water was a blast...the leopard sharks, sea lions and caves were a...continued

This kayak tour takes you out from the beach, so it's hard to get on at first due to the surf. Once on the kayak, it's pretty simple. The tour guide is very informational, and very personal. This tour is out at sea, and you don't kayak through any...continued

This was a wonderful adventure. There was a high surf advisory so we did not go into the caves. Even without the caves the tour was great. Our guides, Alex and Jillian, could not have been better. Here we were, 2 sisters of AARP age with little...continued

It was our first time in a kayak, and our guide gave us a *brief* summary of how to handle the ride before we got into the water. I think he could have done a better job communicating as we encountered some problems with not knowing how to prevent...continued

My husband and I have gone on this tour before and loved it. Thas time we sent our son and his wife for their anniversary. They both had a great time! Apparently their re-entry to the beach was a lot more graceful than ours (I wiped out). This...continued
