The Perfect Little Trip
The 3-day Island Getaway is a delightful taste of the islands in a small package, with no kayaking experience necessary. The typical plan is to paddle to the island, camp at the same beach both nights, and explore from there, maximizing your playtime!
Danzante Island is our most popular Getaway destination. Less than 8 miles around, and as little as 2 miles from the closest access point, Danzante Island has the highest number of accessible beaches per mile, plus two hiking trails with stunning overlooks. It has sandy beaches if you like the scenic beauty, and it has pebbly beaches if you like sand-free camping. It has great snorkeling, even a place called the Aquarium. It has cool things that wash up on the beach. It has spectacular views of the mountains to the west and the sunrise to the east.
Paddle along the fascinating island coastline, and pick out volcanic dikes and eroded “mushroom” rocks. Hike the El Arroyo nature trail and look for lizards. Or just kick back on the beach, swim, read, relax.
Even though the crossing is short to get to Danzante Island, the winds can still make it challenging. Coastal beaches, the protected campsite at Punta Coyote, and the mangrove-lined harbor of Puerto Escondido offer interesting back-up plans should Mother Nature show her force. A panga (local motorboat) shuttle to the island is also available for a fee.
If you have no experience in a kayak, we will spend some time the first day covering the safety and steering basics.
We do schedule Getaways, but you can request them anytime (subject to availability of guide and equipment). Getaways typically go out with very small groups (around 4 people and one guide) making it an accessible and flexible excursion. If you have a group of 3-6 people and want to make a custom Getaway we can do that! Ask us about prices. We work with you to highlight the activities–-or lack of activity-–that your group prefers.
Pricing for single or double kayaks for 3 days/2 nights (on pre-scheduled trips):
Kids 4-13yrs (with adult, in double kayak) $450/person.
Optional panga motorboat shuttle $250 per direction.
