Baja - Circumnavigation of Espiritu Santo

Baja - Circumnavigation of Espiritu Santo

Baja’s Isla Espiritu Santo is a kayak wonderland in the Sea of Cortez (Gulf of California) near La Paz, Mexico. The island is a fabulous wilderness of deserted beaches, protected coves, and rugged cliffs. Kayak along this spectacular and varied coastline, camp on pristine beaches, snorkel in the blue waters, swim with sea lion pups, and bask in the warm Mexican sunshine. We will paddle around the entire group of islands, exploring all sides of this kayaking paradise.

The trip includes 7 days of paddling and 6 nights of camping.

We offer 2 types of trips:

Self-Contained Trips: We carry all of our food and gear in our kayaks, and everyone contributes to setting up camp and cooking wonderful meals with help from the exceptional local guides.

Fully-Catered Trips: These trips have full-time motorboat (“Panga”) support. The Panga carries all of our food and gear to the next campsite while we paddle light kayaks. Coolers aboard the Panga allow for special food and drinks throughout the trip. The Panga crew and guides take care of all the cooking and clean up. We also stay at a slightly more upscale hotel on the first and last night.

Families with pre-teens may register for the "Fully-Catered Trips". We will provide a tandem kayak so that younger kids can paddle with an adult. Families with teens are welcome on both types of trips. There is a 20% discount for children under 14.

Those preferring an all-adult trip may want to avoid the Christmas and March school breaks which are popular with families, or check with our office for a suitable trip.

The circumnavigation trips are excellent holidays for paddlers at any skill level.

I did the 9 day Espiritu Santu circumnavigation and would recommend this trip to anyone. The guides were enthusiastic, patient, and professional. We ate and drank very well. The sea kayaking was excellent. Also, there were lots of options for snorkeling and scrambling up mountains once the day of paddling was over. I had a brilliant time on this trip!" Kathryn, Canada
