Our kayak excursions provide rare, intimate interactions with wildlife. You'll be at eye-level with playful dolphins, inquisitive sea lions, and majestic whales -- not only observing, but interacting in an unobtrusive way.

Each location we visit offers spectacular wilderness adventures with unparalleled wildlife encounters, often with local whale communities, and stunning scenery. Baja's Islands of Loreto Bay in the Sea of Cortez hosts blue whales and fin whales, and friendly gray whale babies can be seen at our exclusive whale camps on the Pacific Coast. In Canada, paddle amidst playful orcas and lumbering humpback whales near Robson Bight Ecological Reserve off the coast of Vancouver Island. Observe Patagonia's southern right whales lounging in their calving lagoons. Yacht through the glacial waters of Alaska, or sleep under the stars on the beaches of the Galápagos Islands.

Our exceptional equipment, itineraries, and operations attract extraordinary guides and office staff that make our adventures special. Our guides are extensively trained in safety measures as well as in interpretive guiding, Kayakers in Baja's Sea of Cortezensuring they are able to communicate their knowledge about the wildlife and natural history to you, and enrich your experience.
