Circumnavigating Isla Espiritu Santo

Espiritu Santo is one of the planet’s iconic sea-kayaking destinations. The UNESCO site and Mexican National Park island provides unbeatable scenery and magnificent camping beaches. The rugged shoreline, off-shore islands and series of headlands and deep bays make each day a new adventure. The west coast of Espiritu is studded with some of the most spectacular white, sandy bays you can imagine while the east coast has enormous towering cliffs, bizarre rock formations and alluring sea caves. Each day we will have plenty of time to snorkel, swim with sea lion pups, hike intriguing volcanic arroyos, bathe in the glorious Baja sun, watch manta rays leap up out of the water, admire a school of dolphins, explore hidden inland lagoons, sip a margarita and relax in great company. Isla Espiritu Santo really is paddling in paradise!

Day by Day

Upon arrival in La Paz you will be met and transferred to your hotel for check in.  At 9:00pm meet your guides for a trip briefing.

Transfer from your hotel in La Paz to Espiritu Santo Island in our high speed motor boat. Your guides will discuss points on safety and provide any beginners with the basics of sea kayaking and correct use of gear and kayaks. In the afternoon we will embark on our first paddle beneath spectacular volcanic cliffs and arrive at the first of many beautiful beaches to set up camp.

You will wake up to the sounds of the sea…

After breakfast and packing u tents we continue in our kayaks exploring a new section of coastline with small off shore islands where numerous sea birds nest. Our next bay has an intriguing canyon with dry waterfall and a fresh water well where we can enjoy a refreshing rinse! Camp on a new beach.

After breakfast and packing our tents away we will kayak to the north end of the island crossing over to Isla Partida and setting base camp for two days in Ensenada Grande.

This is our lay over day and will give us time to relax those paddling muscles! We will take a boat ride out to an exquisite off shore islet which is home to a large sea lion colony. Here you can experience the amazing thrill of swimming with sea lion pups and snorkel amongst thousands of tropical fish.

We will then head back to our camp in time for a sunset dinner.

We continue around the north end of the island for our first paddle along the east coast. A sharp contrast in scenery with spectacular towering cliffs. We will paddle through a narrow channel between Espiritu Santo and Isla Partida to discover a perfect setting – a natural turquoise “swimming pool” and the location of our next camp spot.

After breakfast and camp admin we have a dramatic paddle beneath towering cliffs up to over 2000ft tall. We are rewarded with sea caves which skilful navigators can paddle right through. In the afternoon, we arrive at our favourite camp spot ~ a magnificent 2 mile stretch of superb sweeping white sand.

Our final morning sea-kayaking to complete our circumnavigation. After lunch we will return to La Paz by speed boat. Before checking in to your hotel. There is time to shop for souvenirs before a farewell dinner together.

After breakfast you will be transferred back to the airport in time for your fight home.
