The absolute best of both seas! We spend four days sea kayaking and snorkeling in the shimmering, turquoise Gulf of California, camping out on Espiritu Santo Island. Then we have a mid-week pause to relax and explore the enchanting seaside town of La Paz with its beautiful boardwalk and sensational dining. Finally we transfer to the tranquil lagoons in Magdalena Bay on the Pacific coast of Baja. Here we are hotel based and embark on two days of whale watching expeditions by motor skiff.

Fully Catered Trips
All trip dates listed to the left are Fully Catered: The itinerary remains very much the same since we still paddle from one camp beach to the next. However, a motor boat is utilized each day to carry all the camping gear and provisions leaving you to paddle light empty kayaks. This alleviates the repetitive task of squeezing all your gear into tiny kayak compartments only to unpack again a few hours later. It is also physically easier to paddle a light kayak!
The boat driver and guides will take care of providing you with 3 delicious meals a day and all the cleaning up. A huge bonus is being able to take coolers so that we can offer you ice cold beverages throughout the trip. If the focus of your vacation is not always to kayak you can hitch a ride on the boat with your kayak in tow so you have more time to snorkel, to practice your Spanish or quite simply – to take it easy!
“Every year the Gray Whale makes its annual migration from the Chirikof Basin to Magdalena Bay, a round trip of some 12,400 miles, making it the longest migration by any mammal. During the Gray’s winter visit, they calve and nurse in the shallow lagoons. These amazing Gray Whale nursing grounds are protected by strict Mexican environmental and ecological legislation. We are careful to observe these regulations by exclusively working with licensed cooperatives that have trained boat drivers. This in turn helps support local fishermen and their families.”
