Our wonderful kayaking and camping trips on the Baja Peninsula are the ideal way to get close to the region's plentiful nature, to enjoy a camp fire and the stars at night, and to work off some of the delicious food by kayaking from bay to bay.

Our favourite spots are Magdelena Bay - superb wetland ecosystem and home to gray whales and rich bird life - and the island of Espiritu Santo. Paddle through mangroves, passing cacti strewn cliffs, stopping off in beautiful bays, and soaking up the sunshine. As well as whale watching, you are likely to see sea lion colonies, pelicans and plenty of birds and fish species.

Outside your kayak, enjoy some hiking, bird watching, swimming or snorkelling, not to mention the endless photographic opportunities.

You will join a small group, led by an expert wildlife and kayaking guide and cooking crew, and will have the back-up of a boat at all times. Camping is fully catered and comfortable, and the secluded beaches chosen for your overnight stops are very often inhabited only by you and the resident flora and fauna.
