As your kayak coasts through the water, the little jellies come up to your boat and you can reach down and touch them (although I've been told picking them up is strongly discouraged, for the sake of the jellies).
Renting a kayak is extremely inexpensive at Long Beach's Kayaks on the Water, where they provide kayakers with maps of the area. Kayak rental costs $ 8/hour/person.
Kayaks on the Water is located at 5411 E. Ocean Blvd. in Long Beach.
