Day 1: Kayak Orientation, Sea Kayak, Snorkel and Hike
Grab breakfast on your own before meeting your guides for the start of your kayaking adventure.  You’ll board our van and ride to the launch site 20 minutes south of town.  Before launching our kayaks your guides will provide a basic paddling overview and thorough safety orientation.   We then push off for the start of our kayaking adventure, dipping our paddles into the turquoise water of the Sea of Cortez for the first time.  We make our first crossing before stopping for lunch, snorkeling and hiking.  Following lunch we jump back into the kayaks and head to our first campsite.  Spend your evening mingling with new friends, enjoying our hors-d’oeuvre hour and feasting on an authentic Mexican dinner.  As the evening comes to a close, retreat to your tent and fall asleep under a blanket of stars.

Day 2-5: Loreto Kayaking & Camping
Our days begin with spectacular sunrises and end with delightfully cool evenings. Expect to paddle about 4 hours per day, broken up by a long lunch break and floating rest stops. You'll have opportunities at lunch and after kayaking to snorkel, hike, swim or relax with a good book. Each day we will have the opportunity to encounter whales, dolphins, flying manta rays, incredible birds and the beautiful scenery surrounding the Sea of Cortez.  Evenings find us feasting on delicious fresh food and enjoying margaritas as the sun sets on the horizon.  On dark nights don’t forget to check for bio-luminescence before heading to bed.  We occasionally get the pleasure of witnessing this incredible phenomenon!
