Sea of Cortez Coastal Sea Kayaking
On the longest and most challenging of our kayaking expeditions, you will paddle along a spectacular 65-mile stretch of wild coastline between Loreto and La Paz known as the Mechudo Corridor. We will stop at a number of different remote beach campsites as well as spend the final nights at Espiritu Santo Island Archipelago near La Paz. Baja Expeditions founder Tim Means played a key role, together with a supportive community, in orchestrating the designation of the Espíritu Santo Island group as a natural protected area. You will paddle your kayak each day taking advantage of the most favorable conditions. The expedition also enjoys the support of a motor vessel with a knowledgable captain, your kayak and naturalist guide, and boat and camp crew members who prepare delicious local fare. A portion of the proceeds from your expedition goes to support local programming.
Kayaking 6-12 nautical miles per day, we’ll explore remote coves and inlets, hike hidden canyons with rich geological history, and visit small coastal towns — and perhaps the ruins of a Jesuit mission — to get a taste of local culture and history. Our expert naturalist guides share their knowledge of the islands and coastline and ecosystems of this UNESCO World Heritage Site as they paddle with you, lead nature hikes, and share their favorite spots to snorkel and visit with reef fish and invertebrates. See for yourself why our coastal sea kayakers return year after year! Questions? Contact us
