Baja Sea Kayaking - Prime


  • Spend two weeks paddling the unique coastline of Baja California's Sea of Cortez
  • Camp beneath the stars on beaches along a mountainous coastline
  • Take day hikes in the coastal desert
  • Excellent opportunities to see marine life unique to the Sea of Cortez
  • Visit with locals and experience the culture of Baja California Sur
Baja Sea Kayaking has it all: technical skills, incredible scenery, leadership practice, and unique opportunities for cultural exchanges.

On this course you'll navigate the Sea of Cortez, carrying everything you need for your journey inside the hull of your sea kayak.

Your instructors will teach you how to maneuver this craft onto remote beaches surrounded by cliffs and how to handle the boat when waves and winds pick up. On land, you'll practice cooking, Leave No Trace camping, and maybe some beginning Spanish.

Free diving is a special part of this course, and you'll often spend afternoons exploring coastal reefs and the vast array of multi-colored fish that inhabit them. You may even have the opportunity to enjoy the catch of the day from local fishermen.

By the end of your expedition, you'll walk away with the ability to lead your own sea kayaking adventure and an appreciation for this dramatic Mexican coastline.

“It was great to learn how to come together as a team of strangers and learn how to work together. I learned a lot about how to be efficient on an expedition and how to make decisions based on weather and team strength.”
