Baja, Mexico - Loreto to La Paz

book now

The classic Baja coastal trip, plus some islands along the way.

The Loreto to La Paz Challenge has it all! A journey that really goes somewhere, mountains that rise from the sea, remote islands, and genuine Baja fishing villages along the way. Connect with the sea, and the people who live from it.

It’s the sense of going somewhere. It’s the spiny ridge of the Giganta mountain range that keeps civilization at bay. It’s the richness of the sea, and the romance of distant islands on the horizon.

This trip launches from a beach 15 miles south of Loreto, and takes out at a fish camp north of La Paz on a genuine Baja dirt road. In between are 10 days of freedom. Ten days of life as a band of sea gypsies. Enjoy creative geology, 5-star beaches, some challenging headlands, the occasional cave and isolated fishing village, shy pockets of palm trees, and a typical tailwind.

Our group along with OSKC senior guides James and Dympna and our local Mexican guide Marcos will meet up in Loreto Airport.

 I had no experience whatsoever before I took their course and now I feel confident about going out onto the lake and enjoying my new kayak.
