“The sea, once it casts its spell, holds one in the net of wonder forever.” – Jacques Yves CousteauImagine waking up to the sound of water lapping up against the shore and opening your tent to take in the breathtaking sunrise on a pristine beach on one of the Gulf of California’s most beautiful islands, Espiritu Santo. You then enjoy a freshly prepared breakfast featuring local produce and begin to get ready for another amazing day of sea-kayaking on the brilliantly turquoise and tranquil Sea of Cortez. This is just a peek at what you can expect from your Baja, Mexico Multisport Adventure. We begin our adventure in La Paz, the capital of the Mexican state of Baja California Sur. The next morning we are transported to Espiritu Santo Island where for the next few days you’ll experience the perfect balance between nature and comfort by kayaking from shore to shore, while the local staff carries your equipment, cooks your meals, and caters to your every need. Each day we’ll be treated to meals and snacks that are a mix of Mexican dishes and camping favorites, utilizing local ingredients and produce. We paddle for about 3 hours each day, leaving plenty of free time to snorkel and explore one of the world’s most diverse natural aquariums and hike into the interior of the island to discover the fascinating rock formations and remarkable plant life. Baja is well known for gorgeous aquamarine tranquil seas with stunning beaches for camping and world famous marine-life. The Archipelago of Espiritu Santo Island is a part of the “Gulf of California Islands” Flora and Fauna Protection Area which works to preserve the natural splendor of the island. While on the island you will have the chance to observe over 200 species of plants and more than 70 species of animals including the juancinto (little squirrel), the babisuri (ring-tailed cat), the black hare, and the sand snake. While on the water, there are over 50 species of aquatic birds and more than 15 species of marine mammals that we might come across during our paddling voyages.
