Children of all ages are welcome, the only real consideration is how much they and their family will enjoy the experience together. Swimming with sea lions can be an intense experience for small children, and some don’t want to participate. Same with the whale shark.
On our camping trips, kids 10 and older have had wonderful times. They love playing on the beach and can spend hours with the sand and shells. Children thrive at the pace and activity level of our camps. We camp in mostly wifi-free areas, so teenagers tend to disconnect and relationships seems to relax.
Our trips require only a moderate level of fitness and energy, and can be as intense or relaxed as our guests choose. The most strenuous activities could include climbing a short ladder to exit the water and enter the panga, and swimming against a current. But we are always around to help, and all passengers have overcome these challenges.
Last bathroom call will be at the office. Our skiffs don’t have bathrooms on board. The sea is always a great place to pee. For your comfort, we recommend peeing before or after putting on your wetsuit.
Somewhat… It is sporadic.
We do not provide photos or videos services, nor do we know of anyone who provides this service.
We are out in Nature in a very harsh environment, so there are lots of critters. Bees are frequent, so if you are allergic it’s best to bring your epinephrine. Portuguese man-o-wars can float in our waters. There are stone scorpionfish in the shallow rocky areas. Sea lions can bite. There are scorpions, thorns all around, fire ants… In short, when out in Nature, safety first, be prepared, and stay aware of your surroundings and senses.
For your peace of mind, we are never more than an hour from La Paz and all guides are trained in first-aid. We take safety seriously and we know that the only way to have a fun trip is to have a safe trip.
We cannot go out in very rough conditions, usually meaning strong winds (Beaufort 3+). This is beyond our control, as the Port Authority officially closes the port and we are not allowed to go out. Safety first.
Sea conditions are highly variable. The seas can be somewhat choppy, and if you have a history of seasickness, we recommend taking a Dramamine/equivalent. A good time would be at breakfast, or at the office while gearing up. All things ginger are also reputed to be very effective for sea sickness.
For our day trips, unless otherwise specified in the meals preference, we take a fish ceviche with corn tostadas, fruit, trail mix, beer and soft drinks. We always have water available to refill bottles. In case of vegetarians and vegans we provide hummus instead of ceviche. It goes really well with our awesome tostadas!
We do everything we can to reduce our use of plastic. This includes using only returnable glass containers for beers and soft drinks.
Bring a small daypack. We use the front of the skiff for gear storage and it doesn’t get wet.
There are severals ways. There is a small international airport in the city, which receives flights from all major Mexican cities. Flying to Mexico City and then to La Paz is a very easy connection. Alternately, there are many international flights to Cabo San Lucas. From Cabo you can take a 3 hour shuttle to La Paz. It’s a pretty drive and you can purchase tickets at the airport and online here.
