Bahia Magdalena is a dynamic and exciting place to paddle we will visit locations so remote that you will never see another kayaker.
Magdalena Bay is also the meeting place of two significant ocean currents—the cold California Current coming from Alaska, and the warm Equatorial Countercurrent from across the Pacific. This vortex creates a massive upwelling of nutrients, which supports astonishing biodiversity. It is one of the largest lagoon systems and richest estuarine waters in the world.
This makes Magdalena Bay a great place to watch wildlife! Creatures come from far and wide to feast from the sea’s bounty. To the banquet come gray whales, dolphins, sea turtles, wintering waterfowl, and even coyotes. Enjoy the depth of expertise at your disposal from lifelong local fisherman and guide Marcos Simental, along with OSKC’s own senior guides Dympna and James
This trip is panga-supported kayak expedition, this means we don’t have to carry everything in our kayaks. If we aren’t graced with the presence of whales while we are paddling we can use the panga to go and find gray whales which are on migrate from Alaskan waters each year to breed and calve in Pacific lagoons such as this one.
