Overview

This trip offers the absolute best of two seas! We spend 4 days of sea kayaking and snorkeling in the shimmering, turquoise Sea of Cortez (Gulf of California), and will camp out on Espiritu Santo Island. We then have a mid-week pause to relax and explore the enchanting seaside town of La Paz, with its beautiful waterfront promenade and sensational dining.
Next, we travel to the tranquil lagoons in Magdalena Bay on the Pacific coast of the Baja California Peninsula. Here we are hotel-based and embark on 2 days of whale-watching expeditions by motorboat. Every year the gray whale makes its annual migration from the Chirikof Basin (in the northern Bering Sea) to Magdalena Bay - a round trip of some 12,400 miles (the longest migration by any mammal). During the grays' winter visit, they calve and nurse in the shallow lagoons. These amazing gray-whale nursing grounds are protected by strict Mexican environmental and ecological legislation. We are careful to observe these regulations by working exclusively with licensed cooperatives that have trained boat drivers. This, in turn, helps support local fishing families. The trip combines 4 days of paddling and 3 nights of camping, with 2 days of whale watching. This trip is suitable for paddlers of any skill level.
