Amazing fact: the islands in the Gulf of California have greater plant diversity than any other World Heritage islands on the planet! Plus unnamed species in the sea. Yup, Mexico does Megadiverse! Let your curiosity blossom.
Sure you’ve seen a flower before, but in the desert? Baja for the Curious is a special trip combining the enjoyment of paddling with a curiosity for nature.
Nine nautical miles from the nearest coast or significant island, Isla Monserrate is 11nm around, with a pair of islands 2nm offshore.
Being curious is personally satisfying, but it also does something bigger. By uploading our photos of the plants and animals we see on inaturalist.org we will be contributing to the body of scientific knowledge about this unique place. UNESCO calls this the richest and most varied of any island-sea property on the World Heritage list.
We will ride a motorboat to the island, then be self-sufficient. We offer this trip only in the April, when the weather is more settled. The warmth also inspires the footlong chuckwalla, the endemic Monserrate whiptail and other lizards to be more active. A surprising variety of birds lives here as well, often nesting in springtime. Sea turtles nest on the island too!
