An Overview of our Trips

Sea Kayak Baja Mexico is the premier Loreto outfitter for people who love the outdoors and want to kayak or SUP.

When your experience with us messing about in boats on beautiful islands enriches your life in some way, this is what we call success. Our goal is to open the door to something that inspires and fills you, from kayaking to nature to photography to spiritual deepening to spending time with special people.

Our Day Trips to the islands are customized to your interests. It’s your day!

Island Getaways are kayak-camping vacations with no experience necessary.

Our progression of self-supported trips cater to kayak enthusiasts according to their skill level.

Also check out our Cultural experiences, designed by our guides to deeply share their homeland and culture with you.

On special occasions, we run Expedition Challenge trips by invitation. We invite those who’ve paddled with us before and shown their team spirit and skill. If you are ready to be part of such a dynamic team and take on a truly outstanding journey, let us know! If you haven’t already, please join us for a Builder or Expedition and let us get to know you!

Please note that our 6-day trips are 6 days on the actual trip. We don’t count your arrival and departure days in town. You will need to arrive the day before your trip starts and we recommend departing the day after it ends.

Most of our trips are self-supported, which means we carry everything we need in our kayaks. We love the independence and self-reliance! However, it does mean minimizing what you bring, and packing your own kayak. Packing, as we like to say, is a team sport. If you’re good at it, offer an encouraging hand to others. If you’re new to it, do your best and don’t worry. We will work together until we find solutions. You will learn some tricks and end up with more confidence. We’re also happy to arrange a custom trip if you would like motorboat support.

Teamwork makes a trip more fun, so we invite you to join us in the camp kitchen a few times during your trip to socialize while chopping, mixing, washing, or other lightweight and lighthearted assistance.

Our fleet

Equipment

Sea Kayak Baja Mexico is a Nigel Dennis Expedition Center, the only one in Mexico. Our primary expedition fleet is fiberglass singles, with skegs. We can provide ruddered double kayaks if desired.

The rest of the equipment is well-maintained, professional-quality as well: Kokatat, Werner, Snapdragon, Seals, MSR, Therm-a-Rest Neo-Air, Sea to Summit, and lovingly maintained Don Beale Greenland paddles. Your vacation experience is worth the very best!

Coaching

British Canoeing (formerly the British Canoe Union) offers excellent standards for gauging skill levels. We also provide BC-based training and assessment programs in Loreto.

Most of our British Canoeing Sea Leader -certified expedition leaders are also certified as UKCC (BCU) coaches, so customized training is available upon request during your trip. Our small group size (max 9) facilitates flexibility.
