Coastal Kayaking Expedition

Designed for those who like a challenge - you'll paddle along 65 miles of untamed coast between Loreto and La Paz on this exciting trip - exploring remote coves and inlets and changing camps daily (with one overlap day).

It is one of the longest and most challenging of our kayaking expeditions, with 65 miles of untamed coast between Loreto and La Paz.

(It is hard to accurately rate the difficulty of a sea kayaking trip. Much of the challenge is determined by the weather and the strength and experience level of the group. Energetic people and those who like being active, should be able to enjoy and participate fully in this trip).

One of the best expeditions to explore remote coves and inlets, experience excellent snorkeling, hike in hidden canyons full of fascinating geology, and even visit a few small villages, to sample a bit of local history and culture.

The camps will mostly change daily and our motorized support boat carries all camping equipment, personal gear, and the makings for delicious meals. There are also fresh water showers.

The crew handles most camp chores and prepares all meals. Our expert guides share their knowledge of the area as they paddle with you, and lead nature hikes and snorkeling explorations. The journey ends with a nose-to-whiskers encounter with the sea lions of “Los Islotes”.
