As on all of our adventures, we want to ensure you have the best experience possible – which is why we like to set expectations appropriately for every trip.
We’ll certainly be having some fun in the sun and enjoying the 78 – 84 degree F days. The temps can then drop to the mid-50s at night, making it ideal camping conditions – but please bring layers!
We’ll be supplying you with all equipment needed for kayaking and camping. However, we would recommend bringing your own sleeping bag and wet suit. If you don’t have a sleeping bag or wet suit, don’t fret, there will be ones available to rent if needed.
Our Baja trip is rated Moderate, which means that some base fitness is required, as our main mode of transportation will be via kayak. However, you do not need to be an experienced kayaker, for a few reasons: a motor boat escorts us and transports all our gear, so kayaks are light; you have the option of selecting a tandem kayak and we can pair you with a stronger paddler or guide, which means you wouldn’t have to paddle as hard; and if you decide to skip the kayak for a day, it is no problem as you can ride the motor boat to the next camp and paddle a shorter distance from camp when you arrive.
If you want to prepare physically prior to the trip, your enjoyment will likely increase! We recommend anything that strengthens your core and shoulders/arms. Yoga, sit-ups and push-ups are all good. If you belong to a gym, you might ask a trainer what would be good exercises to prepare for kayaking.
Changes to Your Itinerary
While everything under “What is Included” on the right side column will remain the same, the actual restaurants, hotels, and activities listed in our itineraries are subject to modifications. Changes that are out of our control are common – a restaurant closes or loses its awesome chef, a winery changes its visiting hours, a hotel gets remodeled, a road or trail undergoes construction. You are entrusting us to create an outstanding vacation for you and so it is possible we may take the liberty of making necessary changes (even at the last minute, during the guides’ scout trip) to the itinerary that will improve your overall trip experience. If there is any one experience that is going to make or break your trip, please discuss this with us in advance! We will attempt to keep our website itinerary as current as possible and communicate any major changes with you in the weeks prior to the tour.
