Kayaking trip 9 days – 8 nights on Isla Espiritu Santo
The island is surrounded by clear and turquoise waters, and was declared a nature reserve along with all of the other islands of the Gulf of California. This dream expedition is designed for travelers looking for nature and adventure.

Introduction : on average, we will paddle 3-4 hours each day. Every afternoon we will set up our camp on a different beach.

During this adventure we will get to observe dolphins, sea lions, tropical fishes, manta rays, pelicans, blue footed-boobies, frigates, ospreys… in their natural environment.

From October to May, each kayak expedition is accompanied by a certified naturalist guide and a cook. Travelers can either choose a single or tandem kayak. All the camping and kayak equipment is included in the price of the excursion except: sleeping bag, snorkeling equipment, neoprene suit (can be rented on site). The price also includes meals and drinks on the island, 2 nights in a hotel and a dinner in La Paz.

Participatory trip: all participants help in the different chores of the expedition: loading and unloading of the kayaks, set up of the camp, cooking… the weight of the equipment is spread between all the kayaks.
