We’ve taken some of our clients’ favorite activities and combined them into one GREAT trip! Snorkel with friendly sea lions and among tropical fish, kayak the turquoise waters of the Sea of Cortez, 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 camp on a white sand beach caressed by turquoise waters with volcanic cliffs and towering cactus as back drop. Camp is comprised of walk-in 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 boats/skiffs skillfully operated by our experienced captains will transport folks to and from the island and accompany the trip. 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.

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. The skiffs are also available for those who prefer to ride along rather than kayak.

Don’t miss this opportunity to possibly combine all these spectacular wildlife events with kayaking, snorkeling , hiking and fishing while camping in comfort at our luxury camp on the beautiful island of Espiritu Santo.

* Due to potential new National Park regulations, we may need to move camp once during this trip
