Baja Sea Kayak Expedition

Kayaking in the Sea of Cortez is truly a once in a lifetime opportunity, paddling through turquoise waters with the possibility of swimming with huge whale sharks, giant sea turtles, or mellow sea lions. The Gulf has many geological attractions like arching rock formations on the beach being guarded by towering barrel cactus standing over 15 feet tall, it is truly old Mexico as you would imagine it! The contrast between the desert and the beautiful sea are the paradise we all have dreamt of. Fall time in the Gulf it is getting into sport fish season as colorful dorado come first, then the bill fish and tuna toward the end. It is a perfect time to try to land a fighting sport fish you will never forget.

From the Hermosillo airport the extended trip will then spend the day resupplying while we have modern conveniences, enjoying local culture and journeying down to Guayma to board the ferry across the Sea of Cortez to Santa Rosalia. Before we board the ferry the group gets to enjoy some of the freshest seafood imaginable, the will leave just before sunset and all guests will enjoy private cabins upon the boat.
