Baja Multisport: Gray Whales Hiking And Sea Kayaking

Baja California & Sea of Cortez

7 Days

This trip is an off-the-beaten-path adventure that visits both the Pacific Ocean and Sea of Cortez coastlines of Baja California, Mexico. Every year the whales make their annual migration from the Chirikof Basin to Magdalena Bay, a round trip of some 12,400 miles making it one of the longest migration routes by any mammal. During the whale’s winter visit, they calve and nurse in the shallow lagoons. These amazing Gray Whale nursing grounds are protected by strict Mexican environmental and ecological legislation. The tour company carefully observes these regulations by exclusively working with licensed cooperatives that have trained boat drivers. This in turn helps support local fishermen and their families.

HIGHLIGHTS:

The Grey Whales – Feel the unity with nature experiencing the lagoons and getting a chance for arms length encounters with the Pacific Gray Whales during their annual migration

Kayaking the Sea of Cortez –  enjoy a sea-kayaking expedition in the turquoise waters off the beautiful Island of Espiritu Santo along with guided walks and a visit to a  lion colony at Los Islotes where you can swim and snorkel

Hiking in the Sierra de la Laguna Biosphere Reserve – Hike into the Sierra de la Laguna Biosphere reserve and experience the magic of cascading waterfalls in the spectacular cactus forests of this seldom visited desert wilderness.

Todos Santos – Explore the charming fishing village and try your hand at surfing at Los Cerritos beach.
