Baja Sea Kayaking

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.
