Sea Kayak Baja Mexico is a small company designed for paddling enthusiasts who value quality equipment and sharing the journey with other skilled paddlers in small groups (max 8 for most trips).
Our specialized trips cater to specific skill levels: Retreat, Expedition Primer, Expedition Builder, and Expedition Challenge. They are scheduled around prevailing climate patterns. We can arrange a wide variety of custom trips. Just ask!
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 like most other companies. The same goes for all our trips. For example, 10-day trips are 10 days on the trip, with 9 nights camping. You will need to arrive the day before your trip starts and depart the day after it ends.
Unless otherwise specified or customized, our trips are self-supported, which means we carry everything we need in our kayaks. We love the independence and self-reliance that “real” kayak tripping offers! 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.
Expedition Primers (and Retreats) are designed for paddlers with foundational boating skills and little to moderate overnight experience. Expedition Primer builds skill and confidence, and provides a relaxing vacation.
Expedition Builders are for paddlers with solid skills, comfort in moderate conditions, and multi-night kayak camping experience. Expedition Builder is an opportunity to venture further, refine rough water boat control, develop judgment, and have fun when the wind comes up!
Expedition Challenge allows paddlers with reliable boat-handling skills in dynamic conditions, good fitness, and expedition experience, to enjoy traveling with other skilled kayakers and explore foreign waters with a locally knowledgeable safety net.

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 professional quality as well. Carbon Werner paddles or Don Beale Greenland sticks, neoprene Seals spray decks, and Kokatat or NRS PFDs.
Sails! We have Flat Earth Kayak Sails for rent on your trip. We recommend having a foundation of 3-star skills (mastery in moderate water) before adding a sail to the equasion. They are a great boost on a long day with a loaded kayak, even across the wind or slightly into it. Flat Earth Sails do allow for the kayak to be paddled normally whether the sail is deployed or stowed. Basic instruction comes with a sail rental.
The British Canoe Union (BCU) offers excellent standards for gauging skill levels. We also provide BCU-based training and assessment programs in Loreto as well as through our sister company in Washington state, Columbia River Kayaking.
Most of our BCU-certified expedition leaders are also certified as coaches, so customized training is available upon request during your trip. Our small group size (max 8) facilitates flexibility.
