The community of La Jolla spans some seven miles of coastline, with rugged bluffs, caves, and horseshoe bays, so it's no surprise it's watersports central. Explore the seven sea caves at the base of the town's cliffs on a two-hour paddling tour with La Jolla Kayak, or pair it with a snorkeling tour of the La Jolla Underwater Park. Kids six and up are permitted in tandem kayaks, while the minimum age for snorkeling is eight.
If you'd rather ride the waves than peek beneath them, Surf Diva offers private and group coed surfing lessons for adults as well as kids five and up at the beginner-friendly, sandy-bottom break off La Jolla Shores.
