Sea kayaking, islands, warm water, snorkeling, yoga & whales!
The Sea of Cortez is a breathtaking sight, with the rugged desert landscape of Baja California Sur running into the bright blue ocean. The desert ridges and canyons around Loreto boast the richest variety of life on the peninsula, and the nearby islands and reefs teem with life. From the Sierra de la Giganta mountain range to the idyllic coastline, Baja California Sur is a natural paradise for adventurous travelers.
Experience the magic! Every year gray whales migrate more than 10,000 miles between their summer feeding grounds in the Arctic and the coastal lagoons of the southern Baja peninsula. The whales use these protected, shallow, warm waters as calving nurseries. Orcas, sperm whales, finbacks, minkes, pilot whales and even the immense blue whale, the largest animal on the planet, are known to swim here too. Dolphins and porpoises also frequent the area. It's even possible to see a super pod of dolphin – the magical sight of 50 to 100 dolphins leaping through the water together!
Over the course of this 7-day trip, we'll kayak around the beautiful waters of the Sea of Cortez - camp at pristine beaches on Isla Danzante or Isla del Carmen, soak in natural hot springs, visit the fishing village of Agua Verde, enjoy gourmet meals expertly prepared by your guides, reset with morning mediation and practice daily yoga to keep our bodies aligned...and so much more!
As a bonus, we'll travel to Magdalena Bay, located on the Pacific side of the Baja Peninsula. We board our panga and for the next 3-4 hours watch mother gray whales and their young swimming together under the guidance of our resident naturalist. The whales often get close enough to touch you, or look you in the eye. Don't miss out on this once-in-lifetime experience!
