Baja has to be the best winter sea kayak destination: The Baja California peninsula extends for over 1500 km separating the Pacific Ocean from the Gulf of California. It was Jacques Cousteau who once said that the Gulf is the world's aquarium, he was right: blue whales, orcas, dolphins, sea lions, flying manta rays, tropical fish, blue footed boobies and the list goes on. The mixture of desert and sea is spectacular and the mountain ranges will leave you in awe. Sea caves, beaches, islands, cliffs and surf are just some of the features that make Baja so beautiful.
Our starting point for this adventure is the picturesque and historically rich town of Loreto, a once sleepy fishing village, it has become the Mecca of outdoor in Mexico. An international airport gives travellers access to the town and the Marine National Park where some of our expeditions take place. Camping in remote and secluded beaches, enjoying the winter sun, observing the wildlife and watching the sun setting are some of the things we do. The archipelago allows us to adapt our itinerary to make the most of the paddling conditions.
