We’ve taken some of our clients’ favorite activities and combined them into one GREAT trip! Snorkel with whale sharks (weather permitting on trips starting in January only), sea lions and among tropical fish, kayak the turquoise waters of the Sea of Cortez, release sea turtle hatchlings into the Pacific, walk among giant cactus or try your hand at fishing.
Upon arrival to the famous Espiritu Santo Island (ESI) National Park you’ll settle into our beautiful luxury base camp on a white sand beach caressed by turquoise waters with volcanic cliffs and towering cactus as back drop. Camp is comprised of large walk-in canvas tents, each complete with 2 cots, pads and pillows for a restful nights sleep.
Without having to move camp daily our flexible itinerary facilitates a variety of activities for a variety of interests. Our professional guides will provide sea kayaking excursions tailored to abilities from beginner to advanced paddlers. Motorized skiffs skillfully operated by our experienced captains will transport folks to and from the island and accompany the trip. En-route to the island from La Paz we’ll take the opportunity to visit the whale shark feeding area and possibly have the opportunity to snorkel along side these gentle giants, weather permitting on January departures only. If you are booking a December departure and would like to snorkel with whale sharks we suggest you plan an extra day in La Paz for arranging this activity. Please keep in mind this activity is weather dependent with calm seas necessary.
Having skiffs accompany your trip allows you to participate in activities not possible if traveling by kayak alone. We can motor to snorkeling “hot spots” including a sea lion rookery where we snorkel among these graceful creatures enjoying their playful and curious nature first hand. As we kayak or travel by boat along the shores of ESI it’s common to see manta rays and dolphins leaping from the sea’s surface.
To finish off this exciting tour we’ll take you to Todos Santos on the Pacific side of the Baja Peninsula where you’ll participate in releasing tiny sea turtle hatchlings into the ocean as part of a sea turtle conservation project.
Don’t miss this opportunity to possibly combine all these spectacular wildlife events and other activities while camping in comfort at our luxury base camp only available in December and January!
B/L/D indicates meals included with trip cost.
We are only including a possible whale shark snorkel on January trips as part of this trip’s itinerary. Even during January if the water is rough on the day we’ve scheduled to do this then it may not be possible. If you are booking a December departure and would like to snorkel with whale sharks we suggest you plan an extra day in La Paz for arranging this activity. Please keep in mind this activity is dictated by the forces of nature and not always predictable. The sharks need to be present and calm seas are necessary for snorkeling with them.
Although we do our best to adhere to the above itinerary, it is subject to change for reasons beyond our control including wildlife unpredictability, weather and port closures. Upon the chance the port is closed due to high winds and we can not get a group to the island on departure day we will provide a land based activity for this day.
