Weeklong Trip Exploring Islands in the Sea of Cortez
Isla del Carmen and Isla Danzante are two of the five islands that make up the Loreto Bay National Marine Park. The campsites boast rugged coastal vistas, each more beautiful than the last, and the animals around the islands can include dolphins, whales, sea turtles, mobulas, and over 800 species of fish. Seabirds dot the sky above.
For six to seven days, you will kayak around the two islands, discovering their secrets with assistance from our experienced, professional trip leaders. A Panga provides support, carrying our gear and allowing you to focus on having a good time. Stand up paddle boards and snorkeling gear are both available, and both worth using: the tranquil waters of Loreto Bay make for great paddling, and the Sea of Cortez has been called “the world’s aquarium” due to the immense variety of life forms you can find in it.
At Sea Trek, we make sure to hire guides who know the area and work together well. We think of ourselves as one large family, and whether you are slicing your kayak through the bay’s turquoise waters, relaxing at a camp in an island paradise, or exploring the abundant lifeforms in or out of the water, you will feel that family spirit.
All Sea Trek Baja trips start in the quaint little town of Loreto, located on the Baja peninsula about 600 miles south of San Diego. In most cases there is only one inbound and outbound flight a day, so our afternoon/evening meeting on day 1, and our end of trip logistics are built around that timing.
Some people choose to drive to Loreto down Federal Highway 1, but the easiest way to get there is to fly into the international airport. Direct flights are available from Los Angeles and Tijuana, or you can fly through one of the nearby Mexican cities. Talk to us for more information on traveling to Loreto.
Accommodations Hotel accommodations are not included in the trip package. You will want to book accommodations for at least the night before the first published day of the trip, and then again for the night of the last published day of the trip.
For our confirmed clients, we are pleased to offer the services of our preferred Travel Planners, to assist with all of your flight and hotel needs. Although limited in number, visitors to Loreto have lodging choices that range from Luxury to budget. Our travel planner will assist you in determining lodging that fits your preferences. Our Travel planners are seasoned Baja veterans, and will help you find the best flight arrangements as well, so that your trip planning is smooth and efficient.
