Baja Sea Kayak Guide

Sergio grow up in Puerto San Carlos. He often fished with his father as a kid, and enjoyed the water growing up. While he has only been a guide with ROW Sea Kayak Adventures for two seasons now, he has been guiding for over 16 years, since he was just 16 years old. He got started with kayaking in 1997 while he was working on a natural history course with RARE, an organization for tropical conservation. During the course, they offered the students the opportunity to learn kayaking skills. At the time, Sergio was working as a hotel manager, and never thought he would be a kayaker. However, since he grew up in a fishing family he always like to be close to the sea. One day, a close friend asked him if would like to be sea kayaking guide. Sergio interviewed for the position and accepted the offer. Sixteen years later he is still a kayaking guide in Baja, and still loves it!

Sergio enjoys meeting people from other countries, and sharing his knowledge about Baja California and his love of nature. His favorite places in the world are those with beautiful clear water; luckily Baja has a lot of that! Sergio also loves the cuisine in Baja. His favorite ROW Sea Kayak Adventures meals are the chicken mole, and anything with fish. When Sergio isn't guiding, he enjoys spending time with his family. They love to go fishing, camping and kayaking together. Some friends tell Sergio they "think he is a little crazy because he spends so much time kayaking!" Maybe so, but we understand his love for kayaking and the beauty of Baja!
