Day 1: Arrival Day – Transfer from San Jose del Cabo or La Paz airports to our base in La Paz. Briefing and welcome dinner with our guide.
Day 2: After breakfast, we will sort our gear, and then take the boat from La Paz to Epiritu Santo Island with our kayaks, fishing, snorkelling and camping gear. On the way to the island we will be keeping an eye out for dolphins, gray whales, humpback whales, and turtles. Once we arrive, we will be spending the afternoon exploring the beach and surroundings.
Day 3-4: We will spend three nights on the island in our base-camp. Our guides will do an intro to sea-kayaking, and we will use them as well as our support boat to discover remote fishing and snorkelling sites.We will discuss marine and desert ecology while we explore the island on foot, by kayak, paddle board, or by boat.
Day 5: Morning visit to the sea lion colony just off Espiritu Santo to go snorkelling with these very entertaining sea mammals, before we start our way back to La Paz. We will keep an eye out for whale sharks in the bay of La Paz, and if we find them, we will have the opportunity to snorkel along these majestic animals. Once back in La Paz, there is ample free time in the afternoon to explore this safe, friendly university town, and to go for dinner in the evening.
