Details

Our Sea of Cortez kayaking tours feature encounters with blue & fin whales in the wild and secluded camping on remote desert islands. To prepare for your day of Baja kayaking, you'll find yoga or pilates to be an ideal addition to a blissful Baja vacation. All tours are suitable for beginners.

New for 2014, renowned yoga and pilates instructor Rebecca Raiza will lead a 10-day Combo tour out of lovely La Paz, Baja. Spend three days and two nights deepening your practice on the beach while watching whales frolic off shore, followed by five days and four nights on the island of Espiritu Santo, kayaking, snorkeling, and hiking the scenic treasures of this desert island.

The islands of the Sea of Cortez contain striking natural beauty in a dramatic setting formed by rugged islands with high cliffs and sandy beaches, which contrast with the brilliant reflection from the desert and the surrounding turquoise waters. The area is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and offers the perfect blend of kayaking, hiking and snorkeling.

Abundant wildlife, massive whales, sunny weather and warm, crystalline waters make the Sea of Cortez in Loreto Bay National Marine Park or Espiritu Santo National Park the best winter adventure destinations in North America and Mexico.  View a video of a blue whale near Loreto.

"My husband and I have never kayaked and just returned from our best vacation ever! We loved sea kayaking in the Sea of Cortez with yoga every morning and evening. Great food, great guides and lots of fun! Camping on the beaches under clear starry skies after a day of paddling and snorkeling was almost magical. I am recommending Sea Kayak Adventures to all my friends."

"This was the best trip of my life! The crew was awesome; the guides were all very attentive and informative. Yoga in the morning and evening helped us stay stretched out and limber. Diane and her yoga expertise dialed into what we needed physically, emotionally and spiritually. It was magical. A highlight was watching the sun come up over the Sea of Cortez from a limestone bluff while the guides brought us coffee and tea – it was awe-inspiring!"

FAQ

Please review our FAQ section for general questions and details about our Baja kayak tours. See below for specific questions relating to our yoga tours.

What is the yoga schedule?
Our instructors conduct twice daily sessions on the beach. Enjoy a sunrise morning session before breakfast, and relax with an evening session after kayaking.

Do I have to be an advanced yogi to join you?
The classes will be aimed toward novices as well as advanced practitioners, so all levels are welcome!

When is the best time to go?
Spring and fall are the most ideal times for yoga on the beaches of the Sea of Cortez, as the seasons are characterized by warm days, glassy calm waters for paddling, and endless sunshine. Fall trips enjoy the chance for a desert in bloom and warm water snorkeling, while during spring, many cetaceans migrate into the Sea of Cortez and sightings may include blue, fin, and humpback whales.
