This expedition explores some of Baja’s finest coastal scenery between La Paz and Loreto in Baja California Sur. For 10 days we’re flanked by an enormous mountain range, the Sierra de la Giganta. In many places where sheer cliffs reach hundreds of feet high, it plunges directly into the Gulf. Rust red volcanic rock formations provide intricate caves and arches to explore and canyon lands that beckon the intrepid. The beaches are extraordinarily beautiful with fine soft white sand and many have canyons behind which we can explore on foot.
This area has a very low amount of seafaring traffic, but an amazing amount of marine activity. We can expect daily dolphin sightings, whales and pristine snorkeling areas. We indulge in fresh fish and lobster so feel free to bring your own fishing line and help catch dinner! There’s a mid-expedition replenishment of water and food supplies and removal of accumulated trash. Four and a half days of supplies is the most we carry in our kayaks.
Please note this trip is more demanding than our Espiritu Santo Expeditions and is only suitable for intermediate and advanced paddlers. We’ll be paddlingan average of approximately four hours a day with longer days possible.

Cooperatively Catered Trips
Dates listed for this trip are Cooperatively Catered: In accordance with the groups dietary requirements, your guides will have already prepared a menu plan and bought the food and beverages. During the trip the guides organize each meal and everyone pitches in to help cook and clean.
All the gear, food and water is carried in our sea-kayaks from one camp site to the next. We have no motor boat support so it is therefore a group task with the support of your guides, to pack and carry everything. Naturally, the rewards lie in the tremendous feeling of self-sufficiency, a bonding team spirit and a marvelous sense of accomplishment. Many would agree that this is the ‘only’ way to do a sea-kayaking expedition.
On our 7 day trip we make a re-supply midweek. So effectively the most we ever carry in our kayaks is 3 days supply of food and water. At the time of re-supply the motor boat takes away our accumulated trash.
