Courses Overview

Learn in Loreto!

Baja is a spectacularly rich place to learn. From sheltered beaches to open sea, the variety is only surpassed by the natural beauty, and both are occasionally interrupted by exciting wildlife interactions.

Paddlesports is the most obvious thing to learn with Sea Kayak Baja Mexico, but a kayak-camping trip is also an ideal context in which to practice your Spanish with a native speaker, to learn about the natural world, or to add some tricks to your camp cooking skills.

In any sport, it’s always a good idea to start with the safety basics. Our fun, capable coaches will get you going with confidence!

Got experience and want to learn more? Even if you’ve been paddling for a long time, working with a professional coach puts consolidated generations of accumulated learning at your disposal, customized for your needs and goals.

Choose a course from our menu, or let us know what you’d like to learn and when you can be here, and we will propose a plan.
