What is Paddle Boarding?

Stand up paddle boarding is one of the best overall workouts that you can do.

Due to its mixture of core balance, strength, and endurance, it provides a full body workout.

It is an extremely popular water sport that is typically done on the ocean in open water.

It's not just the workout portion of it that makes it so popular though.

This is something you can do individually, or even with a group of people.

You can easily get out into the water, soak in the sun, and enjoy the freedom that you have as you navigate through the ocean and watch your worries float away.

You must be 18 years of age to rent.

WaveRunner Tour

The Yamaha WaveRunner is the actual Jet Ski which visitors will be riding in, and the Jet skis will be in the water ready to ride when you arrive.

One of the downsides of most tours on the water, is that towing is typically needed, which can take up costly minutes of your tours.

Luckily, this doesn't happen in this tour, as you simply arrive and get ready for your ride.

If you haven't driven a WaveRunner before, their friendly staff will ensure that you receive all of the appropriate information and guidance that you need to drive safely and to have a fun ride.

What is a Jet Ski Tour anyways?

A jet ski is a personal water aircraft that can typically have 2 riders.

It is the easiest and smoothest way to ride on water with a smaller amount of people. 

This is an extremely popular hobby that allows riders to speed through the ocean or leisurely drive while enjoying the amazing San Diego views.

In this tour you will be able to navigate the La Jolla coastline and admire the cover, the sea-life and the atmosphere.

You must be 21 years of age to rent.

Kayak Tours

Visitors will be able to rent a Kayak for a single rider or for 2 riders, and enjoy the beautiful soothing water through San Diego from a unique point of view.

What is a Kayak?

A kayak is a narrow and small water aircraft that is usually 'driven' by a rider using a double bladed paddle.

The unique aspect of a kayak is that you are sitting down with your legs completely stretched forward, while strictly using your upper body to paddle. Kayaking can be done individually or with a group.

Kayaks like paddle boards, allow you to get closer to nature. 

It is also a great outdoor low impact exercise that promotes upper body conditioning.

You must be 18 years of age to rent.

Lifejackets are included with this tour.
