BE Custom Exploration (Eco Camp)
Our Espíritu Santo Island Eco Camp offers comfortable amenities in a natural protected area and is an idyllic spot for you to enjoy a customized itinerary designed by you and your group. You select your trip dates, length, itinerary, and type and level of activity. Using the camp as a base, choose from each day's possible adventures: kayaking in a paddler's paradise, hiking up desert canyons, or swimming and snorkeling with playful California sea lions and schools of tropical fish. Scientific research? Wildlife photography? Strategic planning in a shaded canyon? A high school reunion? Time with family? Perfect.
Our company founder Tim Means played a key role, together with a supportive community, in orchestrating the designation of Espíritu Santo Island group as a natural protected area. We hold the first and, to date, one of the very few minimum-impact base camp permits, and you may have neighbors down the beach including local school groups supporting ecology and conservation projects; a portion of the proceeds from your expedition goes to support this local programming.
This expedition is available from October to April. Perfect for families, active folks and groups, our base-camp-style stay welcomes you to our eco camp in a cove in the protected waters of Espiritu Santo Island. You and your group can design a trip for structured team-building, reflection or that much-need down time with family and friends! Our flexible itinerary facilitates a variety of activities to match your interests and diverse abilities, and can be as active or as relaxing as you choose. Enjoy delicious catered meals prepared with fresh local ingredients.
