Loreto Bay National Park

The group meets at breakfast before boarding the van for the short drive south to our launch point near Puerto Escondido. As we near our destination, the peaks and hanging valleys of the Sierra Giganta tower above the coast road. South of Puerto Escondido the mountains plunge straight into the sea and the highway turns inland. A comprehensive sea kayak instructional session is presented before we set off to paddle to our first campsite. In the early evening you’ll enjoy your first beach “Happy Hour” with margaritas and botanas (snacks) followed by a gourmet dinner as the sun sets over the peaks of the Sierra Giganta.

Overnight: Camping

Meals: Lunch & Dinner

Kayaking the Sea of Cortez

Your days begin with magnificent sunrises along with the calls of wintering song birds from the bushes behind the beach and finish with pleasantly cool evenings. Each day you’ll break camp and paddle north along the dramatic coastline of the islands stopping along the way to snorkel in some of the many coves. Expect to paddle about 4 hours a day, with a long lunch break and floating respites. You’ll have ample opportunities after kayaking to snorkel, hike, swim or simply relax with a good book. Each evening finds us in a beautiful campsite enjoying a fresh cooked meal and a round of margaritas as the sunsets. *Days 2-4 on 5-Day Itinerary

Overnight: Camping

Return to Loreto

After breakfast, and perhaps a final swim, we load the kayaks for the paddle to the takeout point. After a final lunch on the beach we board waiting vans around 2:00 PM and proceed to Loreto. After checking back into the hotel there is time to shower and explore this rustic old mission town. This evening there is an optional no-host group dinner at a favorite local restaurant. *Day 5 on 5-Day Itinerary

I had a wonderful time and I’m so glad I decided to go! All three of my kayak excursions with Tofino Expeditions have been more than vacations, they have been life enriching and educational. A joy, thank you!!
