With much-appreciated support from you, our treasured clients and friends, we’re still here and celebrating new awakenings. We are as excited as you are to be gearing up for an amazing 2021-2022 season!
A negative Covid test is required within 72 hours (3 days) of your meeting or course with us. Our guides are also tested before each trip. For your own peace of mind, we highly recommend getting vaccinated before traveling. Thank you!
Covid testing for tourists leaving Loreto for the US is available 1-2 days before your flight by appointment from 8am to 12 and from 2pm to 6; Saturdays 8am-2pm; closed Sundays. Results are ready in 2 hours. The US test costs $1300MXN (about $86USD) and can be paid in USD, pesos or by credit card.
The test for Canada takes more time, requiring processing in La Paz. Results are ready 2 days after your test, from 7am. The Canada test costs $4500MXN (about $284CAD) and can be paid in USD, pesos or by credit card.

Applying Your Credit
For those who couldn’t make their trips due to Covid and took the credit option, here are 2 things to keep in mind:
1. No matter what expiration date your credit has, we will honor it through the end of 2022.
2. We will also extend our 10% repeat client discount in the coming season and on all your future trips.
If you’d like to reserve your spot on a scheduled trip, please register on the Waitlist. We will contact you within a few days to proceed. Your credit will be your deposit. We have a list of credits given, but hang onto your copy as well.
If you are not able to paddle with us in the foreseeable future, please consider donating your credit. It is a gesture we deeply appreciate and it will help very much!
Insuring Your Trip (just do it!)

Travel Insurance Review
Forbes CFAR article
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.
We are being as flexible and generous as we can while still hoping to remain in business. We are a small, homegrown company and simply do not have the financial reserves to act as an insurance company ourselves, so please insure your trip.
We are thrilled to have survived the Covid challenge with your generous support, and look forward to continuing to build the vision.
Thank you for your confidence in us!
