How to Register

We’re glad you’d like to join us for a trip! Once we’ve answered your questions via email at info@seakayakbajamexico dot com, the process begins by clicking on the “Register” link on the calendar, or on the page describing the trip of your choice. If you’re registering for a custom trip or rental, we will send you a registration link.

In the registration process, you will be asked for your contact info, and a little about you so that we can fit the appropriate equipment, get park permits for you, and plan your menu to meet your dietary needs.

Apply for an “Experience required” event

Certain trips, courses and rentals require experience. If you are registering for a Sea Kayak Builder, Sea Kayak Expedition, One Island Rental, Expedition Rental, Sea Paddler Training, Sea Leader Training, Sea Leader Expedition, or Surf Camp, please tell us more about your experience so we can do our best to match you to the most appropriate trip. You will be able to do this on the registration form.

If we believe the trip you’ve chosen is not appropriate, we will communicate with you via email. We’re also available to discuss it on the phone. We will give you a full refund within the week, or we can apply your deposit to another trip, whichever you prefer.

Ifyou would like to use your desired trip as a goal in your development as a paddler, we’re happy to work with you on a plan. Please contact us to discuss it. We love helping people grow!

Cancellation and Evacuation Insurance

Protect your investment. GET TRAVEL INSURANCE. PLEASE. Mother Nature and Murphy’s Law ensure that surprises sometimes happen. SKBM makes financial commitments to your trip and needs to honor those whether or not you make it. Invest in your peace of mind by purchasing insurance for your trip. Consider these coverages:

Cancellation for Any Reason (CFAR)
CFAR is an optional travel benefit you can add to your Trip Insurance. For many agencies, it is the only one to cover COVID-19 related cancellations. Several people every season find themselves needing to cancel their trip before they ever leave home. It might be you. Be prepared.

Travel Insurance companies
Our clients have had success with these before:
insuremytrip.com
travelinsur.com
allianztravelinsurance.com

Evacuation Insurance
Accidents are thankfully rare on our trips, but the unexpected can happen anywhere. From motorboat transport to local doctor bills to extra hotel stays to changing flights, to getting home with Covid, the cost of an evacuation can add up. These expenses are your responsibility.

GEOS Medivac membership not only covers evacuations, it will provide repatriation coordination to travelers with Covid-19. This may be your only ticket home if you are infected abroad.

Waitlist

The waitlist is used to express your interest in a trip. If the trip is full and a space comes open, we will contact you. If the trip is not full, but you’re not ready to make a deposit, or would like to have your deposit amount reduced, the waitlist lets us know you’re thinking about it and lets us make that modification before you pay the deposit. We will contact you before canceling the trip or making significant changes. The waitlist is NOT a guarantee of a seat on the trip. Only a deposit will reserve your space.

Dashboard

You can visit your Dashboard any time to to update or view the status of your reservation. The link is the green button on the top right of every Sea Kayak Baja Mexico page.

Carbon Offset

We share your concern for our little blue planet!

Lost or Damaged Equipment

You will be held responsible for equipment damaged or lost while it is in your care. Please be aware that the cost of replacing equipment in Mexico may be notably higher than it would cost where it is readily available, or where it would be possible to ship. We drive new equipment down from the states once a year. Most of our equipment also requires importation. Please take care with the equipment! Repair and replacement price list.
