They say a great journey is made of many small paddle strokes. From Isla Tortuga to the other side of the Gulf was a journey of 55nm, which SKBM owner Ginni Callahan paddled in late October 2020 after a summer of training. She launched at midnight and By dawn had paddled for 6 hours and completed a third of the crossing. The sun awoke to find a tiny turquoise arrow headed steadily northeast far above one of the world’s deepest ocean trenches.

She started with guides Jorge and Ruben from Santa Rosalia and visited San Marcos and Tortuga Islands en route, then headed out solo on the big crossing.
