Adventure Travel in San Diego | Experiential

Adventure in San Diego

Imagine gliding 150 feet above the cliffs of La Jolla and the Pacific Ocean strapped into a cocoon like seat as the winds carry you up and down the coast. Perhaps kayaking or diving in Sevengill Shark infested waters off the coast of La Jolla sounds intriguing.

Maybe you prefer what they call 'soft' adventure: a tour through wine country on horseback or biking up and down the streets of Pacific Beach.




If any of those activities sounded like a great way to spend your vacation then adventure travel is definitely for you.
