Insider Tips

October and November offer the beautiful warm weather and spectacular cobalt blue water and clear visibility.

The north wind can sometimes blow from December through March, but we know from experience exactly how to work around it. This is when loads of whales come to Mexico on their winter vacation. February and March are especially perfect for spotting blue whales in the Loreto National Park.

April and May have a charm all of their own as the water and weather warms up. Special features are enormous schools of mobula rays, pods of dolphins, whale sharks and fingers crossed that our spotter airplane will find orcas and sperm whales for you.

Chill in the hot tub

Typical Itinerary

Fly into SJD. Cabo. Cab

Day 1

1 pm. Complimentary photo and video workshop SeeCreatures Cabo Sa nLucas. 3 pm coach transfer to La Paz to board your ship at 5:30 pm. Cocktail hour and then sail off into the sunset as you enjoy dinner while we reposition for the next day of paddling.

Day 2

We will most likely start off with a day at anchor at Espiritu Santo UNESCO world heritage site where we will launch the kayaks for a day of fun and adventure. Every day will be different and your captain and guides will tweak and tune your itinerary to maximize the animal encounters and minimize any weather concerns.

Days 3 – 4

We might start with a morning paddle and then visit the tiny fishing village at Isla Partido. If the tides are right, we might try for a paddle through the fascinating mangroves at Isla San Jose. Mangroves are beautiful and provide protection for loads of fish and birds as well as being the single most productive way to process CO2. Wonderful to visit and wonderful to paddle through.

Days 4 – 5

Loreto National Park. The beaches, the mountains in the background and the
scenery are stunning and we have park permits to go ashore and explore some of the islands.
It would be easy to spend the entire trip here as it’s so beautiful. Option to go ashore in Loreto in the afternoon to look around and take a tour inland to experience a warm welcome on a local ranch and visit a mission and learn about the Jesuit history in Baja

Day 6

Open to adventure! This is our spare day to rack up some more adventures. Captain’s special. If the blue whales are around, we will do our best to get you out with them in specially permitted pangas.

Day 7 7

Back to Espiritu Santo.

Day 8 7

Breakfast. 8:30 am disembarkation and complimentary transfer back to either SJD or Cabo San Lucas or join us for an extra couple of days in La Paz.

Operated For Safety

Safety is a very serious business. Mother Ocean can be capricious and unforgiving. We hold ourselves to the highest standards and you should expect and demand no less. In our view, every dive boat should be operated within a certified ISM safety management system, outfitted with sprinklers, emergency smoke hoods for everybody and the same safety, fire, life saving equipment and radios as the largest cruise ships. Captains, mates and engineers should have professional commercial mariner qualifications and all crew should have STCW professional mariner certification. Safety is not something to publish in a brochure. It’s part of our DNA. A cornerstone of our culture. Something that we have been living by for every day of the last 30 years.
