Eco-Adventures at The Ritz-Carlton Laguna Niguel
March 11, 2013By: K. Clare Johnson

 

Why have an ordinary hotel stay when you can have an eco-adventure?

The Ritz-Carlton, Laguna Niguel, which premiered as the first luxury beach resort along coastal Orange County, is located halfway between San Diego and Los Angeles.  It sits high up on a 150 foot bluff that features cascading views of the Pacific Ocean. 

Set amidst such a beauty, it's not surprising that the luxury hotel has an Eco-Adventure Center that turns the local surroundings into a natural classroom and living laboratory.  The Center offers adventures for all ages, with the aim to encourage sound environmental practices and a deeper respect for nature. 

 

Sample events and adventures include:

-Garden tours where guest will learn about sustainable gardening practices and about the indigenous flora and fauna of Southern California.  

-Whale-watching excursion to Dana Point, which is the Whale Capital of the West. Blue, Humpback, and Gray Whales are all visible as they migrate along the Pacific Coast.  

-Exploration of Strands Beach. Guests will investigate the local foliage and wildlife of the Dana Point Headlands and learn how they adapt to the ever-changing coast.

-Body Boarding at Salt Creek Beach.  Learn how waves are created, study the effects of a rip current, and discover the longshore drift.  Then cap off all that learning with some body boarding. 

-Snorkeling the kelp forest. Learn about the harmonious and diverse kelp forest and learn what can be done to protect it. 

-Customized programs for groups, including unique team building activites that bring individuals in touch with the ocean, planet, and themselves.
