Tour Overview

Welcome to an extraordinary journey of sea kayaking, relaxation and connection with nature on our 7-day Sea Kayaking Camp. Set amidst the splendor of Espiritu Santo Island, a UNESCO World Natural Heritage and National Marine Park site, this immersive experience invites you to unwind and celebrate life. Indulge in delicious freshly made meals, paired with Baja California wine, happy hour cocktails, snacks, and more. Espiritu Santo Island beckons with its sandy beaches, dramatic cliff faces, and vibrant bird-filled mangroves. Explore the island’s wonders at your own pace, as sea kayaking unveils countless opportunities for discovery and enjoyment.

Our rendezvous point is La Paz, the capital of Baja California Sur, from where we embark on an unforgettable journey to Espiritu Santo Island. Once there, you will find yourself in what Jacques Cousteau famously called “the aquarium of the world.” From swimming alongside the largest fish in the world to gliding through the crystalline waters of Espiritu Santo’s captivating bays in kayaks, to snorkeling with the enchanting sea lions, we are delighted to guide you through this awe-inspiring place.

Your trip begins and ends with nights of comfort at Hotel Catedral, conveniently located in the heart of La Paz. For the remaining four nights and five days, immerse yourself in island life with a relaxed schedule. Each day, after a hearty breakfast, we set off on kayaking expeditions, exploring the many bays and beaches that grace our path. In the afternoon, return to camp, indulge in well-deserved relaxation, and reflect on the day’s adventures as we treat you to a captivating sunset happy hour, followed by a delectable dinner.

Setting up camp with a light footprint, our accommodations may appear simple, yet they provide a wonderful experience in harmony with the island’s natural surroundings. Committed to adhering to park regulations, we ensure that our camp respects the delicate ecosystem, leaving minimal impact on the pristine environment. You’ll find comfort and tranquility amidst this minimalist setting, allowing you to fully immerse yourself in the island’s serene ambiance. At Eco Migrations, we believe in celebrating and preserving the natural beauty that surrounds us, and we are excited to share this remarkable experience with you. See you soon!

Start the day with the amazing complimentary breakfast at Hotel Catedral, then meet at the Eco Migrations office to gear up for the adventure ahead. Board the skiff and set sail for Espíritu Santo Island. Arrive at our beach home for the next few days, where you’ll receive a camp introduction and savor a delicious lunch.

In the afternoon, dive into a sea kayaking introduction. Familiarize yourself with the equipment and learn helpful sea kayaking techniques. There is also time to snorkel the reefs near the camp. Marvel at the diverse marine life, including stone scorpionfish, lobsters, moray eels, and a multitude of fish. As the day winds down, enjoy a refreshing sun shower, change into fresh clothes, and gather round for a delightful happy hour with margaritas and guacamole, followed by a mouthwatering dinner. Stargazing under the night sky may reveal the mesmerizing beauty of Jupiter’s moons and the twinkling stars.

Day 3

Awaken early to witness the stunning sunrise and enjoy a cup of coffee. Then load up on a hearty breakfast featuring eggs, pancakes, and sausage to prepare for our excursion to Los Islotes! After about 30 minutes of navigating, we arrive at the sea lion rookery and find ourselves in a spot teeming with fish and playful sea lion cubs. After an unforgettable snorkeling experience, hop back on the skiff, dry off, and find a pristine beach for an energizing lunch of chicken salad, tostadas, and fresh fruit.

We continue our exploration in the afternoon, visiting the frigate bird colony and the fascinating tidal pools. We return to camp for a congenial happy hour featuring ceviche and cold beer, followed by a delicious dinner accompanied by a breathtaking sunset. Enjoy the engaging conversations before retiring early to prepare for the next day’s adventures.

Day 4

Fuel up with breakfast and get ready to visit a new beach. After packing up our gear, we embark on a two-hour paddle, arriving at the southern tip of the island, where a scrumptious lunch of tuna salad sandwiches, fruit, and nuts awaits. If the mood strikes, we continue kayaking for another hour, arriving at the beautiful La Despensa Beach.

When we are good and ready, we arrive at our new campsite for a well-deserved rest, happy hour and  dinner. We are now on island time and head to bed early night.

Day 5

Enjoy the early morning tranquility with a cup of coffee and sunrise. Following a hearty breakfast, embark on the final day of sea kayaking. Head towards La Partida, the striking point where Espíritu Santo and La Partida Islands split apart. Kayak along the island’s edge, reveling in the turquoise waters full of turtles and colorful fish. Observe seabirds soaring above and fish gracefully swimming below. After a few hours, arrive at a secluded beach, where a delightful ceviche lunch awaits.

Take time to rest, comb the beach, and stare at the waves gently lapping the beach. Return to camp for some free time on our last afternoon on the island. Gather once more for a memorable happy hour followed by a delectable dinner.

Day 6

Enjoy the morning and finish packing up your gear, ready to load the skiffs after breakfast. Enjoy a delicious breakfast of chilaquiles, fried egg, and beans, and get ready for the last day’s adventures. Depart around 9:30 am, as the best is saved for last – a visit to the whale shark viewing area for our 11:00 am reservation.

Navigate slowly through the Whale Shark Refuge, searching for these majestic creatures. Spotting their faint shadows in the water can be a thrilling challenge, but once found, we swiftly get organized for an unforgettable encounter. Witness the stunning beauty of whale sharks as they effortlessly glide through the water, and if conditions permit, swim alongside them. We wrap up our day’s activities and our trip, and return to La Paz with joyful hearts and beautiful memories. Enjoy nice warm shower and a real bed at Hotel Catedral.
