Quick Escapes! Sea Kayaking in Isla Espiritu Santo – Baja

Quick Escapes! Sea Kayaking in Isla Espiritu Santo – Baja

sqBly-004Our four-day expeditions are an excellent introduction to sea kayaking and enable folks with a limited amount of vacation time to still get out and enjoy the Gulf of California’s most beautiful island.

During these trips we paddle for about three hours a day, discovering a new beach to set up camp. This leaves plenty of time free to hike into the interior of the island and explore canyons with amazing rock formations and fascinating plant life. We also have time to snorkel each day and marvel at one of the world’s most diverse ‘natural aquariums.’

There is a choice of Fully Catered and Cooperatively Catered four-day expeditions.

Children under 14 receive 20% discount.


  • Certified bilingual naturalist guides
  • Single and/or double kayaks, all kayaking gear, camping equipment, transportation to and from your La Paz hotel to the island.
  • All food and beverages during expedition

Not Included

  • Sleeping bags
  • Snorkel sets and wet suits may be rented
  • Accommodation–but we’ll be delighted to help make recommendations and reservations for you

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!

Read on for a description of Cooperatively Catered trips and dates.

Cooperatively Catered Trips

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.

Typical itinerary:

Note: This itinerary is likely to be reversed when joining a trip that starts on a Wednesday. It is also probable that we will paddle down the east side of the island.

Day 1: You’ll transfer from your hotel in La Paz to Espiritu Santo Island in our high- speed motorboat. The guides will discuss points on safety and provide beginners with the basics of sea kayaking and correct use of gear and kayaks. In the afternoon we embark on our first paddle beneath spectacular volcanic cliffs and arrive at the first of many beautiful beaches to set up camp.

Day 2: We continue in our kayaks, exploring a new section of coastline with small offshore islands where numerous sea birds nest. We’ll camp on a new beach.

Day 3: Today we complete our voyage to the end of the island. It will be our final night camping on the island.

Day 4: We’ll take a fast motorboat ride to a beautiful offshore island, which is home to a large sea lion colony. Experience the amazing thrill of swimming with sea lion pups and snorkel amongst thousands of tropical fish. We’ll have lunch back at camp and then pack up to return to La Paz by mid-afternoon.
