Kayaking in Baja’s Sea of Cortez is a sun and sand adventure that draws thousands to this premiere paddling destination each year. While Sea Kayak Adventures has proudly offered Baja sea kayak tours from the town of Loreto for the past 20 years, we are excited for our 20th anniversary to announce a brand new line of trips out of Baja’s capital city of La Paz. La Paz was once famed for its illustrious pearl trade. The Bay of La Paz held an oceanic treasure chest of these precious gems for hundreds of years, drawing settlers and pirates to the tropic clime. Now a tranquil seaside port, La Paz's new fortune lies in its wealth of maritime adventure. The pearl of these riches unfurls on the city's northern horizon as the majestic isle of Espiritu Santo. This UNESCO World Heritage Site boasts one of the most beautiful beaches in the world. Combined with breathtaking geology and luminescent aqua seas, Espiritu Santo is a tantalizing sea kayaking and snorkeling destination.
We are honored to receive the very last exclusive government operating permit that will ever be distributed for this exquisite island. We invite you to join us in La Paz this November through May, and experience first-hand the marine wonders that once attracted generations of settlers and seafarers, and now eco-tourists.
Itineraries include your choice of 4- or 7-days of paddling and camping under the stars on the island's sandy beaches. The 4-day kayak tours depart each Monday and Friday from Nov 26 through May, and feature either the island's West or East side. The 7-day paddle trips will circumnavigate the entire island (weather permitting). Each tour includes an excursion to Los Islotes, at the northern tip of the island, to snorkel with vibrant, friendly sea lion pups. As with all Sea Kayak Adventures tours, these trips are fully-supplied, fully-guided, and fully-catered, so just bring your clothing! Hotel nights before and after kayaking are included in the trip price.
If you decide to travel late January through mid-March, consider combining your sea kayak sojourn to Espiritu Santo with a stay at our exclusive safari-style gray whale camp in a 9- or 11-day Baja panorama! These trips combine 4 days of kayaking in Baja's Espiritu Santo (including snorkeling with sea lions) and either 3 or 4 days at our exclusive gray whale basecamp in Magdalena Bay.
Which ever trip you select, rest easy knowing your travel to La Paz couldn't be simpler. La Paz is just a short, 2-hour shuttle ride from the major international hub of Cabo; inexpensive flights are available year round. Or, fly directly into the city (airport code LAP) from Los Angeles or Mexico City. Tours begin November 26, 2012! See you out there.
