The Perfect Little Trip
The Private Island Getaway is a custom short trip for couples, families, and small groups of 2-6 people. We schedule them in the calmer seasons, but you can request them anytime (subject to availability of guide and equipment). We work with you to highlight the activities–or lack of activity–that your group prefers.
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 and pebbly beaches. It has great snorkeling and spectacular views of the mountains to the west and the sunrise and to the east. It has cool things that wash up on the beach.
Danzante Island is one of 5 major islands in the National Marine Park of the Bay of Loreto. Situated in the Gulf of California, the islands of this marine park are included on UNESCOs World Heritage Gulf Islands listing. UNESCO calls this the richest and most varied of any island-sea property on the World Heritage list.
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 have options. You may add a 2-hour intro lesson the day before your trip for $65. Or you may enjoy your Getaway on coastal beaches until you have mastered the safety and steering basics. Or you may hire a panga for the crossings. We work with you and the forecast (we know how reliable those are!) to come up with a sound plan. A safe trip is an enjoyable one!
