Paddle at your own pace with our kayak rentals. We’ll take care of logistics with complimentary transportation of the kayak to and from the launch point at the beach. Our staff will accompany you from the store to the water and make sure you get past those first waves.

The whole family can enjoy our kayak rentals as long as everyone can swim! We provide you with all the equipment, including life vests, helmets, paddles, and a customized water map to explore the La Jolla Ecological Reserve, kelp beds, and cliffsides. You can also enjoy exciting encounters with sea lions, harmless leopard sharks, garibaldi, and more of the diverse marine life inhabiting the La Jolla Shores.

Why Rent A Kayak From Bike And Kayak Tours?

Kayak at your own pace on the calm waters of La Jolla Shores, and paddle along the La Jolla Ecological Reserve where you’ll spot diverse marine creatures from above the water.

Don’t worry about logistics! We’ll take care of transferring your watercraft(s) to and from the launch point at the beach.

All kayak equipment is included in the rental, so you only have to take care of extras such as towels and bathing suits, and in case you forget anything, you can find cool souvenirs at our retail store.
