This is an exceptional adventure in a very remote and spectacular part of Baja, virtually untouched by human impact. We paddle along a narrow channel in the relatively calm waters protected from the turbulent ocean by Isla Magdalena.
Sand dunes situated on the island provide a contrast to the labyrinth of mangroves along the Baja coastline. Nesting amongst the thick groves are prolific numbers of exotic birds. The La Florida estuary and a maze of other channels offer a view into another vibrant ecosystem. The bay is also the winter home of Gray whales who migrate 6000 miles to mate and give birth in these protected waters.
This expedition is a 40-mile journey and will average approximately three hours of paddling a day, including some longer days.
This is a unique expedition exclusively offered by CRE and their partners.

SPECIAL NOTE: This trip is scheduled during January to avoid the breeding season of the Gray whales as at that time of year the Mexican authorities restrict sea kayaking on these waterways. Since we began these trips in 2006 we’ve had close encounters on every expedition except in January 2010 when there were none sighted. Therefore, we don’t advertise this trip as a whale watching tour.
