Paddling South’s 6-day trip kayaking through the islands and along the coast of Baja California offers a little of everything. Travelers 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.

But this isn’t just a wilderness trip—you will have plenty of opportunity to see the realities of life in rural Mexico. As the trip nears its end, you visit a hot spring, a local ranch, and a small fishing village, offering several glimpses of the “real” Mexico that you don’t get to see at your average tourist location.


If you fly into Loreto the day before the trip, we will be there to greet you at the airport and arrange transportation to your waterfront hotel. Let us know if you plan on arriving via some other method of transportation. Once you’re at the hotel, we’ll have an orientation session, in which 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!
