Exploration, variety, and excitement
Do you love to paddle in beautiful places and don’t mind covering some distance to do it? This trip’s for you! We’ve heard your requests for longer paddling days, and we get it. It’s a big world out there, and it feels good to cover ground and see lots of it!
Efficiency and solid dynamic water skills count on this journey. So does awareness and teamwork, both on the water, and off. We aim to look out for each other, encourage each other, and help each other out. It’s a beautiful, and deeply rewarding experience.
The five islands in Loreto National Marine Park each have unique personalities. This expedition aims to visit the 3 most accessible islands in a weeklong journey that averages 12-15nm of paddling a day.
From a 16,000 year-old volcano to shell-laden marine terraces; from colorful cliffs to white sand beaches, the variety of these three islands provides a scenic and inspiring setting.
Isla Coronados is the volcano, with lava feeder tubes frozen in time, looking somewhat like giant petrified cabbages. A colony of sea lions enjoys a haul-out on the more remote NE corner of the island.
Isla del Carmen holds many treasures. Rock hopping and sea caves number among the paddling delights. Geology and snorkeling are both colorful along here, and Salinas is the only ghost town on the islands.
Isla Danzante, the sleeping dragon, takes igneous rock to new artistic expressions. Volcanic dikes, hoodoo peaks, thin purple ash layers, mushroom rocks, and natural arches keep your head turning.
The Loreto National Marine Park is too beautiful to not enjoy a hike or a peek around underwater along the way as well. Join us for this one and see how much adventure can you pack into one week!
