Baja Kayaking Tours for Experienced Kayakers
Our Baja kayaking for Experienced kayakers are kayak trips geared to the paddler who wants a no-fuss paddling trip in Baja. Operated entirely in sporty single kayaks these trips combine the smooth logistics and great food of our other tours with the independence and goals of a private trip. Led by seasoned guides who are also avid paddlers this route will show you some of the hidden gems of the Sea of Cortez including Islas Carmen and Danzante. The guides are happy to coach and assist with paddling skills development over the course of the trip. While somewhat more physically challenging than our other Baja kayaking tours that are operated in double kayaks this is still a vacation with the familiar Baja rhythm of early starts, morning paddles, afternoon siestas, snorkeling and hiking.
The clear waters of the Loreto Bay National Marine Park (Parque National Bahia Loreto) between Isla Carmen, its neighboring islands and the Baja mainland are favored by Blue Whales and Fin Whales and these massive animals can be observed frequently along the course of this trip. Lying out in your sleeping bag under a sky ablaze with stars and listening to the sound of the sonorous breathing of great whales from just offshore is an unforgettable experience. Small coves teem with exotically colored fish and this trip affords many opportunities for snorkeling in what is considered one of the finest fishing areas in Baja. Bird life abounds on the islands: ospreys nest on high headlands, brown pelicans congregate on partially submerged reefs, and blue footed boobies roost on white seaside cliffs.
The Baja peninsula is one of North America’s popular paddling destinations, Jaques Cousteau called the Sea of Cortez, “The World’s Aquarium”. An agreeable climate, one of the most ecologically intact archipelagos in the world, and a wide range of kayaking routes make it an ideal winter escape.
