  1. Clam Cavern. Clam cavern is a calmer cave that has lots of entrances, making this westernmost cave quite popular for kayakers as well as snorkelers.

 

  1. Sunny Jim’s. This local cavern is the most utilized and thus the most famous, which is mainly due to the fact that it offers visitors access via land and sea. The land access requires visitors to walk down 138 steps in order to access the cave.

 

  1. Arch Cavern. Available for kayaking only during the summer months, the Arch Cavern is a shallow water cavern that gets its name due to the shape of the rock formation in front of the cavern.

 

  1. Shopping Cart Cavern. The west facing Shopping Cart Cavern is often recognized for its ability to attract lobsters. Local restaurants used to be able to set traps inside the area to sell as a local delicacy, but now must set traps outside the area due to its new predominance as an ecological reserve area.

 

  1. White Lady Cavern. This cavern is named in memory of a bride who was lost at sea when a tide came in and swept her away, never to be found again.

 

  1. Little Sister Cavern. Located next to the White Lady Cavern, the Little Sister Cavern is the smallest cavern. Because this small cavern can be difficult to find those new to kayaking will benefit from having an experienced guide by their side.

 

  1. Rose Canyon Fault Line Cavern. Located just east of the White Lady Cavern, visitors are able to visit the Rose Canyon Fault Line Cavern and see an exposed fault line close up, which travels all the way through to downtown San Diego.
