Baja Mexico, Loreto Islands Expedition Primer
March 10, 2014 – March 15, 2014
Join us as we team up with Sea Kayak Baja Mexico to offer you an unforgettable kayaking experience. Over the course of six days we will paddle, snorkel, explore, and relax on the beautiful white sandy beaches of Loreto, where the mountains meet the sea.
This trip is designed for beginner to intermediate paddlers with fundamental paddling skills. We will paddle about nine miles in a given day in calm to mild weather with winds from 0 -2 knots. This is the most relaxed trip offered by Sea Kayak Baja Mexico. Below is a sample of the itinerary. Prior to the trip there will be a mandatory paddle clinic to teach basic paddle and rescue skills. The clinic date will be scheduled with you after the registration process is completed. The registration deadline is April 20, 2014. Click here for the printable registration form.
