A Floating Introduction

Launching from Loreto, Baja California Sur, this sea kayaking expedition is a floating introduction to one of Mexico’s most important reserves, Loreto National Marine Park. Discover the history and architecture of the first Spanish colonial city on the Baja Peninsula and jump from cobblestones to skipping stones on the surrounding islands of the marine park. Loreto is an official Magical Town. “Pueblo Mágico” is a Mexican government designation that recognizes towns that are rich in tradition, culture and history. The magic status is also a commitment to preserving and sharing the cultural and natural heritage of towns like Loreto.


Visit an Official “Magic Town”

Experience the Sea of Cortez

This trip offers lots of playtime—in the water, on foot and by sea kayak. On Isla Coronado, walk across the talcum-white beach and follow the switchback hiking trail to the top of Volcan Coronado for panoramic views of the rolling desert hills and cobalt Sea of Cortez. It’s a balance of camping and relaxed oceanfront hotel stays with an authentic Mexican menu to spice everything up in between.

This trip starts in Loreto, Mexico (airport code: LTO), and finishes in Los Cabos, Mexico.

Day 2 Hike

This walk begins on a boardwalk and then shifts to a well-traveled path. The trail then becomes more technical with lava rock and boulders with cairns marking the way. Curving ever upwards on switchbacks, the last 15 minutes are steep and the most challenging as the terrain becomes sandy with loose stones underfoot. 

The Volcan Coronado hike is rated moderately difficult. Walking sticks or poles are recommended. You may turn around at any point on this hike if you are uncomfortable. Please wear proper footwear for this hike, it ain’t no walk in the park!

Paddling

Ultimately, Mother Nature determines the route and itinerary with her voting power. Winds and park permits can influence the order of daily activities, so the paddling portion of this expedition must be read with a grain of sea salt. We will be supported by a motorized panga boat that will carry our camping gear, food and water, which means the sea kayaks will be lighter and faster. 

On expedition, have your biceps ready to paddle around 2–4 hours a day. Distances will vary but expect crossings that are 2–2.5 miles long (3–4 km) with potentially windy conditions.

Sanitation

Head’s up: On expedition, there are no showers! Fresh water is reserved for drinking and cooking only. You can use saltwater and soap off above the high tide line, or use disposable shower wipes if you wish. A porta potty will be transported to each campsite for solid waste. You can urinate above the high tide line or in a separate porta-potty bucket—your guide will cover all of this in a campsite orientation.

How We Support You

Ready for a big adventure? We’re in it together. On this trip, we sea kayak for hours at a time, snorkel and spend several nights camping. It’s a trip for advanced beginner sea kayakers, meaning you must have sea kayaking experience and be extremely comfortable in various, changing conditions on the water. Yes, it’s a challenge, but you’re never alone. Like thousands of women before you, you’ll draw on strength you didn’t know you had and come out feeling like the goddess you are.

Still have questions or concerns? Let’s talk about it.

What the Trip Entails

This is an active, multi-activity adventure. We would like you to be comfortable with the following:

  • checkmark icon Padding in a sea kayak for 4–5 hours
  • checkmark icon Camping in a tent (4 nights)
  • checkmark icon Being in and on the water, as there may be unexpected swims and snorkeling is a big part of the trip
  • checkmark icon Not comfortable swimming? Please let us know! 
  • checkmark icon Physical Rating: Moderate – Challenging (Be prepared for active physical activity. Trips average 5 to 8 hours of physical activity most days, and depending on the shape you are in, they typically require activity specific training ahead of the trip.)
