Our History

Celebrating 35 Years of Sea Kayak Adventures

Since 1988, Tofino Expeditions Limited has operated inspired sea kayaking tours and courses in Haida Gwaii (Queen Charlotte Islands), British Columbia, Canada, and Baja California, Mexico. We also offer international sea kayak adventures in Italy, Brazil, Norway, Croatia, the Galapagos Islands, and the Amazon. Most of our trips in North America and overseas include visits to UNESCO World Heritage Sites.

This is our 35th season of offering Baja sea kayaking tours and trips in the Gulf of California / Sea of Cortez, a place Jaques Cousteau called "the world's aquarium." In 1987, when we first started kayaking in Baja, we knew we'd found the perfect counterpoint to the temperate northwest coast. With predictably sunny weather, warm, clear water, and incredible wildlife, Baja is the best place in North America for a winter kayaking trip.

We operate most of our Baja sea kayaking trips in the Loreto Bay National Marine Park ( Parque Nacional Bahia de Loreto). Over the years, we have refined the itineraries based on guest feedback and satisfaction. Every winter, the waters around the islands of the Parque Nacional host Blue Whales and Fin whales, and our tours often include encounters with these gentle giants and other marine mammals. We offer itineraries catering to paddlers from novice to experienced that are operated in double or single kayaks. All our kayak adventures are built around exploring and enjoying Baja's unique ecology. This year, come with us and discover the warmth of Baja, Mexico's magnificent peninsula.

All of our journeys reflect our values of authenticity and conservation. They are crafted to feature the best of each destination while providing a unique perspective on place and culture. We are passionate about serving utterly delicious meals prepared with the very best local ingredients, emphasizing organic foods. Our trips include a satisfyingly diverse range of activities and experiences. We guarantee you will return from a vacation with us relaxed and rejuvenated.
