  • Isolated islands and pristine coastline
  • Snorkeling, and hiking
  • Gray Whale watching at Magdalena Bay
  • Experienced guides with local knowledge and connections
  • Your kayaks will be light and agile
  • Support boat used for exploring and whale watching
  • Beautiful campsites and delicious food

Paddling South’s 4-day kayaking trip through the islands and along the coast of Baja California offers a little of everything. You will spend the first half of the trip exploring the isolated islands near Loreto and miles of pristine wilderness along the coastline. These scenic landscapes are teeming with life above and below the water and you will have an unprecedented chance to witness the wildlife first-hand. You'll often get to experience the cultural aspects of nearby ranches and fishing villages as well.

This trip includes a day excursion to see gray whales in their breeding/calving lagoons on the Pacific side where local guides take us out in pangas (small skiffs) to see the whales. Back on the Sea of Cortez side, it's the time of year when the opportunities to see blue whales and humpback whales are greater than normal. Please note that based on weather and whale sightings, the excursion to the gray whale lagoons occurs either in the beginning of your trip or at the end.

On this trip, we combine our Coast and Islands kayaking trip with daily excursions in our panga, a motorized support boat that can get us into the Blue Whale Triangle in a short time. This greatly increases our range and viewing opportunities. These majestic creatures are the largest animal on earth, and viewing them close-up is a breathtaking experience, to say the least.

Itinerary

Your adventure begins with a Pre-trip orientation with your guides, on the afternoon before launch day. We will communicate and coordinate in advance with all guests the time and location for a comfortable outside meeting at a convenient location in town. At this orientation session, our guides will explain the trip in more detail, and answer any questions you may have. Afterward, you are free to explore Loreto for a place to get dinner—the guides will be happy to provide some recommendations!

ABOUT MOTORIZED SKIFF SUPPORTED TRIPS

Our motorized 26' support boats (Pangas) allow you to enjoy comfortable camps, light nimble kayaks, and delicious meals and drinks.

The Panga carries all the camping gear, most personal gear, and provisions, leaving you to paddle light, empty kayaks. This also eliminates the repetitive task of squeezing all your gear into tiny compartments only to unpack again a few hours later. It is also physically easier to paddle a light kayak.

We are able to carry a much more comfortable camp in this way as well. Think upright chairs, tables, large shade structures, and private bathroom accommodations. This is not glamping, but it is definitely very comfortable!

Our panga driver (panguero) and guides will take care of providing you with 3 delicious and healthy meals and snacks each day, and they will do all the cleaning up. Also, having a motor boat along means that we are able to take ice chests allowing for a rich array of specialty foods and beverages. We are also able to offer a more flexible program. For instance, less energetic folks may choose to hitch a ride in the panga to the next camping beach. We can also provide side trips to otherwise inaccessible yet interesting locations. Please note that we still require your assistance to set up/take down your own tent and we appreciate any help loading and unloading the boat when we change camp.

These boats do not travel with us each day, so that we enjoy a true wilderness paddling experience, but they are always a quick radio call away should we need them for any reason. They are especially delightful to have around when we see whales in the distance, or dolphin stampedes from our camp. We will usually gather folks into the boat and head out for a special wildlife viewing experience, oftentimes getting as "up close and personal" as is appropriate!

This trip begins at Loreto. Located on the lower part of the eastern gulf coastline, this town has long been a destination for people seeking a wilderness adventure.

COASTAL EXPLORATION AND WHALE WATCHING

Paddling South’s 6-day kayaking trip through the islands and along the coast of Baja California offers a little of everything. You will spend the first half of the trip exploring the isolated islands near Loreto, and miles of pristine wilderness along the coastline. These scenic landscapes are teeming with life above and below the water, and you will have an unprecedented chance to witness the wildlife first-hand. You'll often get to experience the cultural aspects of nearby ranches and fishing villages as well.

This trip includes a day excursion to see gray whales in their breeding/calving lagoons on the Pacific side where local guides take us out in pangas (small skiffs) to see the whales. Back on the Sea of Cortez side, during our kayaking trip, it's the time of year where the opportunities to see Blue whales and Humpback whales are greater than normal. In fact, a triangular section of water just south of Isla del Carmen is known as “the blue whale triangle” owing to the large numbers of blue whale sightings there. Please note that based on weather and whale sightings the excursion to the gray whale lagoons either happens in the beginning of your trip or at the end.

On this trip, we combine our Coast and Islands kayaking trip with daily excursions in our panga, a motorized support boat that can get us into the Blue Whale Triangle in a short time. This greatly increases our range and viewing opportunities. These majestic creatures are the largest animal on earth, and viewing them close-up is a breathtaking experience, to say the least.

    10 DAYS OF UNFORGETTABLE KAYAKING ALONG THE BAJA COAST.

    Our favorite long-distance adventure, the La Paz Route takes 10 days for a group of experienced paddlers to complete. The seas and coastline provide the perfect environment for relaxing and exploring. If you’ve tried our Coasts & Islands trip and want to see more, or if you’re an avid kayaker who wants to experience as much of the Baja California coast as you can, this is the expedition for you.

    We'll expect to paddle approximately 70-90 miles over the course of the trip with average total daily paddling times of 4-5 hours with breaks. Each paddler will carry all the clothing, items, and equipment you will need for the duration of the trip. You form an independent, self-sufficient unit that sets its own pace.

    A BAJA CLASSIC SEA KAYAK ADVENTURE

    The Sea Kayak route from Mulege to Loreto is one of the more remote routes along the Sea of Cortez. Starting near Mulege, a small oasis town to the north of Loreto, we take our kayaks past Conception Bay and down the eastern coast of the Baja Peninsula.

    We’ll be spending approximately 4-6 hours per day paddling, so you should consider this trip if you have some previous kayaking experience. If this will be your first time on a sea kayak, consider trying one of our Coasts & Islands or Classic Islands trips first.

    Once we push out into the water, we’ll be on our own. Your guides will have a basic plan to get you to Loreto in the next 10 days, and you should have plenty of time to explore the interesting areas you come across. There are no support craft, making for an expedition that is quiet, self-sufficient, and flexible in how far you travel each day. Depending on your guide and the makeup of your trip, your itinerary may look like this:

    ITINERARY

    Your adventure begins with a Pre-trip orientation with your guides, on the afternoon before launch day. We will communicate and coordinate in advance with all guests the time and location for a comfortable outside meeting at a convenient location in town.

Afterward, you are free to explore Loreto for a place to get dinner—the guides will be happy to provide some recommendations!

You'll often get to experience the cultural aspects of nearby ranches and fishing villages as well.

    This trip includes a day excursion to see gray whales in their breeding/calving lagoons on the Pacific side where local guides take us out in pangas (small skiffs) to see the whales. Back on the Sea of Cortez side, during our kayaking trip, it's the time of year where the opportunities to see Blue whales and Humpback whales are greater than normal. Please note that based on weather and whale sightings the excursion to the gray whale lagoons either happens in the beginning of your trip or at the end.
