"Your people in the Baja were fantastic. The whale watching was awesome. Espiritu Santo Island was a paradise...the weather was fantastic. I could go on and on about the entire trip, but suffice it to say that it was one of the best run tours I've ever been on and everything was just perfect." Glen Huffman, Combo trip Feb 2010
Early Bird Special:
For our 2015 season, combine any two of our Quick Getaway
Mar Y Aventuras is Spanish for Sea and Adventures. We offer Baja sea kayaking excursions to remote islands and beaches in the Sea of Cortez including the National Parks near La Paz and Loreto and Baja whale watching trips in Magdalena Bay, Southern Baja California, Mexico.
Our focus is creating active trips using sea kayaks and snorkel gear to enjoy unique wildlife encounters and learn about the rich natural and cultural history of Baja and the Sea of Cortez while enjoying delicious regional food in a guided tour format. A locally operated sea kayak and whale watching eco-tour outfitter since 1993, Mar Y Aventuras operates sea kayaking, paddling and whale watching trips with the utmost respect for the local culture, flora and fauna.
The guides, crew and staff of Mar Y Aventuras are from Mexico. Most grew up in Baja, recreating in their backyard known as the Sea of Cortez. Traveling through Baja with us means going with the locals and sometimes receiving fresh fish or warm tortillas along the way from the many friends and relatives of our staff. Baja and the Sea of Cortez are our specialty; we don't operate trips anywhere else in the world. We know Baja best--its people, waters, landscapes, weather and wildlife.
The nationally protected island of Espiritu Santo just north of La Paz was noted by the USA Today as one of the 50 places in the world you must visit in your lifetime. The waters around Espiritu Santo Island are ideal for kayaking and feature unique wildlife encounters such as snorkeling with friendly sea lions at Los Islotes and the gentle, graceful whale sharks of El Mogote. We have been enchanting guests with the stunning beauty and extraordinary wildlife of Espiritu Santo Island and its surrounding waters for over 30 years.
Our expeditions along the remote coast and islands between La Paz and Loreto, including the Loreto Bay National Marine Park (a world heritage UNESCO site), have been highlighted as the "ultimate Baja California kayaking safari" by National Geographic Adventure magazine.
For the ultimate Baja whale watching experience, don't miss the gray whale migration to Magdalena Bay. National Geographic Traveler magazine notes us as the outfitter to join for a unique friendly gray whale experience. During late January through early March you can combine a Baja Whale Watching trip in Magdalena Bay and Baja Sea Kayaking trip to Espiritu Santo Island and stay at our lovely La Paz Inn, for 3 nights for a unique way to experience both coasts of Baja in 10 days.
Sea & Adventures, Inc. and Mar Y Aventuras, S.A. de C.V. are sister companies operating jointly to provide you with the best vacation service possible.
