    Full Day Hike Bike & Kayak Tour (tandem kayak) no longer offered by vendor (IW 7/29/16)

    Looking for a real adventure? On this full day hike, bike, and kayak combo tour you will start at the top of Mt. Soledad. It’s the highest coastal peak within hundreds of miles, offering a stunning 360° view of the entire San Diego coastline and even as far as Mexico. You'll hop on your custom fitted Bianchi hybrid bike with your friendly, expert naturalist guide and zoom down the mountain (at your pace, of course) to the spectacular San Diego coastline, where you will check out San Diego's premier landmarks. The pace is not strenuous, but expect to do some pedaling over a few short hills. The bike riding on this tour is done within bike lanes on roads. The first 3.5 miles of your tour is downhill. The rest of the tour (approx. 10 miles) is done on the back streets of La Jolla, Pacific Beach and Mission Beach. The last leg of the tour is mostly flat, with a few hills (that can be walked up if needed). Next you will walk down to the beach where your guide will provide a brief paddle instruction before helping you launch your tandem kayak into the waves. You will kayak through the incredible rock formations and caves (if conditions permit), through the expansive kelp forests and wildlife hot spots.You can spot a variety of wildlife including sea lions, dolphins, harmless leopard sharks, harbor seals, bat rays, an abundance of brilliant fish, and magnificent sea birds. Every season brings a new set of wildlife to get to know. Finally, you will hike through Torrey Pines, a fragile 2,000 acre region home of our nation’s rarest pine tree - Pinus torreyana. The views include wind-bent trees, abstract sandstone formations, wildflowers, and the sea below - all of which are constantly changing. You are sure to be astounded by the view from atop one of several viewing platforms that have been built right at the bluff edge, which are excellent sites for observing the yearly migration of the Gray Whales as well as catching sight of dolphins, which populate this area year-round. This is the perfect full-day, combo tour to explore San Diego by bike, land, and sea.

  • Vimbly is the best! It is super convenient and makes trying new things easy. The classes they link you up with are extraordinary facilities that exceed expectations. I could not be happier after discovering Vimbly. A++

  • I have taken two tours with Vimbly and am looking forward to many more in the future! They have a wide variety of opportunities, many of which I would never have thought of doing. Both tours that I attended were well organized, interesting, and fun. I look to Vimbly for ideas and activities when I want to find something fun to do.
    Karen R.
  • Used Vimbly 3 times now: booked a Knife Skills class at Institute of Culinary Education, booked tickets to Improvised Shakespeare (HOW DID THEY EVEN GET ACCESS TO THESE???), and booked tickets to an Improv show at the Upright Citizen's Brigade. Really simple and efficient way to find something to do and book it right away without ever having to pick up a phone. I like that you can search by date and also category.
    Amanda K.
  • As far as a rating, I'd absolutely give your site a 10. It's easy to use, easy to find whats upcoming, unambiguous and concise. It's something my mother could use without calling me seven times with questions. I've already pointed some friends to the site, and you can be sure I'll be using it in the future.

  • I already have recommended it to a friend! Several in fact. The site is such a good idea and I love how the people at Church Street knew we were coming and treated us like their own customers and not coupon redeemers. My girlfriend and I will definitely be going back there and are already looking on your site for what to do next weekend.
    Evan W.
  • Easily one of the best dates I've been on, and I have Vimbly to thank for the idea. Planning to use it again while I'm in the city for the next month, and already reminded my coworkers about it.
