Sea Kayak Baja Mexico 2019 - Loreto National Park
- Duration: 9 Days (approx.)
- Product code: P53HJD
Our 10 Day adventure begins with a flight into the township of Loreto in Baja Mexico. 2 days drive south of the border and nestled between the mountains and the sea this will be our base to to get set for our Kayak exploration. Loreto is exactly 26 degrees north in latitude, which means that for about 2 hours at the right time of the night in winter-spring, the southern cross is just visible on the southern horizon.
With a Free day to explore the area and a couple of nights in a hotel to get over our Jet Lag we will meet our local guide to look at the weather a decide our paddling itineray.
Since the formation of the Loreto National Marine Park, UNESCO has recognised these islands and all the islands in the Gulf of California (Sea of Cortez) as a world heritage site. Blue whales, humpbacks, dolphins, sea turtles, plankton, magnificent frigate birds, blue footed boobies brown pelicans, angel fish, parrot fish, sierra, dorado, rainbow wrasses, puffer fish all call this place home.
Upwellings and wind-driven currents pull up the rich nutrients of the sea, and the sun inspires rapid growth, but it doesn’t stop there. The desert has it’s own show. Flowering plants, cacti, marine fossils, volcanic layers of ash and breccia, faults, uplifts and intrusions will all be part of our daily life around camp and exploring for short hikes when we can.
The itinerary for our 6 Day Kayak Trip will be based on prevailing winds and weather conditions and will see us camping under the stars, eating amazing food, immersing ourselves in one of the most amazing and diverse ocean wilderness areas on the planet and sharing our stories with great laughs. Put it on your bucket list to visit this amazing place! It will be a trip of a lifetime!
