This is the perfect escape for the enthusiastic paddler seeking the pace and feel of an active vacation. We are the only outfitter in Baja to combine paddling parts of this beautiful, remote section of the Baja Coastline with the stunning islands of San Jose and Espiritu Santo. We created this itinerary by popular demand from our client’s suggestions. They wanted to paddle this famous coastline between Loreto and La Paz but also explore San Jose Island and snorkel with the sea lions on Espiritu Santo Island!
This combination makes this trip a snorkeler and paddler’s dream, offering unique scenic beauty combined with abundant wildlife viewed from above and below the water’s surface. The Sea of Cortez presents optimal paddling conditions in the spring and fall. Enjoy the warm (80 degrees F) waters in fall for snorkeling to your heart’s content. Spring trips are characterized by warm, calm days and possible encounters with migrating blue, humpback and fin whales.
Kayaking along this coastline allows us the opportunity to explore a region accessible only by water for the most part. These remote areas present isolated beaches and arroyos filled with palm trees occasionally dotted with small fishing villages and ranches. Most of our crew grew up in this area which adds a unique insight into the local culture as we visit their relatives and learn about the regional history while exploring coastal ranching and fishing villages.
Our flexible itinerary and motorized boat support facilitate a variety of activities and paddling abilities including side trips for fishing, snorkeling, hiking and possible whale watching when a spout is spotted in the distance. Our boats, called pangas in Baja, are especially designed for travel on the Sea of Cortez. They are equipped with 4-stroke motors and kayak roof racks which makes for a safe and luxurious sea kayaking excursion. The boats are available for transporting folks to the next camp when winds prevent paddling long distances or for emergencies evacuations. As well they carry heavy loads from camp to camp so your kayaks are light and easy to paddle. If you get tired no problem, we’ll load your kayak onto our paddlers support skiff and you can enjoy riding in the skiff and possibly do some trolling!
This is truly a unique excursion for anyone who enjoys some paddling, snorkeling, hiking and/or fishing while enjoying the beautiful and wildlife rich Sea of Cortez waters, coastlines and islands.
