La Jolla: Stand Up Paddle Board Rental

4. La Jolla: Stand Up Paddle Board Rental

Stand-up paddle boarding (SUP) is one of the best ways to get out and enjoy the water. The sport began as an ancient Hawaiian tradition that was reintroduced to the world in the mid-60s.  SUP boarding is one of the best ways to explore the Seven Sea Caves of La Jolla, a remarkable creation full of marine wildlife. These 7 unique sea caves are filled with local history and natural beauty. The La Jolla Ecological Reserve starts at the Seven Sea Caves and extends north to Scripps Pier. This remarkable stretch of water is home to an underwater park, part of La Jolla's submarine canyon, giant kelp forests and a rocky reef.  The preserve shelters numerous species, including leopard sharks, sea turtles, sea lions, dolphins and migrating whales. Only 2% of the world's ocean water is protected by state and federal law, which also makes La Jolla's ecological reserve a rare place to see undisturbed wildlife in their natural habitat. The stand up paddle boards are inflatable, lightweight, and easy to transport from the shop to the beach and back.

What people are saying about Pacific Beach

Paddle boarding is very fun! Just so future renters know, you have to carry your own board about 1/4 mile to the beach. They aren’t heavy for a man but a woman or child will have problems. When you rent a Kayak they have them down at the water. I would not do the paddle boarding again unless they could have all the equipment already on the beach waiting. The staff is super friendly and helpful. Overall a very fun time.
