BajaEx/plore! Personalized Eco Camp

The island of Espiritu Santo renders the perfect opportunity to experience the unique essence of Baja. Our 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.

Start your day with an exhilarating morning paddle and spend the afternoons snorkeling with sea lions or exploring the hidden canyons of this desert paradise. Silently navigate along sheer volcanic cliffs along the eastern coast of the island, snorkel with copious amounts colorful sea critters, and experience a sea lion's life at Los Islotes as you snorkel and frolic with these clown princes of the sea. There is always a delightful surprise waiting around every corner to unravel a treasure before your very eyes.

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 projectsa 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.
