Creating active trips with unique wildlife encounters
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 foods 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 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, Posada LunaSol for 3 nights for a unique way to experience both coasts of Baja in 10 days.
