What you can expect
Sustainability is the name of the game on this fun, informative tour of Laguna Beach. In addition to exploring the area with a local, you’ll get to see first hand the efforts being made to preserve the natural environment, from beach clean-ups to marine mammal rehabilitation.
You’ll meet your guide at the Laguna Beach Lifeguard Tower, the most photographed lifeguard post in the US! From there your tour starts with a stroll along the beach cliffs overlooking the Pacific while learning more about how Laguna Beach fights against the ocean plastic epidemic with community beach clean-ups and diving events organised by Project Aware, designed to rid the area’s unique kelp beds of plastic waste.
Next it’s time for a cup of organic coffee. In support of passionate, sustainable, organic coffee farmers, Urth Caffè has sought to bring the greatest coffee to its customers; coffee that is not only superb, but also healthier for the people who grow it, who drink it, and for the world.
After a coffee, make your way to the Laguna Beach bus station for a ride into the Laguna Canyon, part of Laguna Coast Wilderness Park, to visit the Pacific Marine Mammal Center (PMMC). The PMMC rescues, rehabilitates and releases marine mammals. The centre is a non-profit organisation and the first marine mammal rehabilitation facility in California. By joining this tour your donation goes directly towards fresh and healthy food and medication to help rehabilitate these stranded mammals.
After visiting the centre, go for a brief, scenic walk into the Laguna Canyon, part of the Laguna Coast Wilderness Park. The park lies within some of the last remaining coastal canyons in Southern California.
Next, take the bus back to downtown Laguna Beach to walk to your final destination: Active Culture Cafe. Along the way you’ll learn more about the vibrant street art of Laguna. At Active Culture Cafe you can enjoy amazing frozen yoghurt, acai bowls, or vegan or vegetarian lunch options. From here, you’re free to head back to your accommodation, or ask your guide for suggestions for what else to see and do in vibrant Laguna Beach.
