After a long winter stateside, are you ready to venture south to some of the most beautiful and inaccessible beaches on the Sea of Cortez in Baja California? Come explore with us on this alumni trip which includes sea kayaking on the Sea of Cortez and whale watching on Laguna San Ignacio.

You will learn paddle strokes, navigation, rescue techniques, and more. There will be opportunities for hiking and snorkeling in the afternoons when it is often too windy for kayaking. This trip will surely fill fast so don't delay in signing up!
