Expedition style - we load our kayaks and paddle from camp to camp circumnavigating the entire island. Espiritu Santo offers vivid contrasts in scenery; while the west coast is studded with some of the most spectacular white, sandy bays you can imagine, the east coast has enormous towering cliffs, bizarre rock formations and alluring sea caves. After paddling approximately 3-4 hours each day we will have plenty of time to enjoy great snorkeling, to swim with sea lion pups, hike intriguing volcanic arroyos, bathe in the glorious Baja sun, watch huge manta rays surge up out of the water, admire playful dolphins, explore hidden inland lagoons, Isla Espiritu Santo really is paddling in paradise - just ask anyone that has been there!
