Loreto, Baja California (PRWEB) November 15, 2008 — USA-based Sea Kayak Adventures, Inc. is offering an exciting trip package where participants can be eyeball-to-eyeball with a gray whale in Baja’s federally protected calving lagoon Magdalena Bay and paddle a kayak alongside dolphins, fin and blue whales in the clear waters of the Sea of Cortez. Their eight-day “Baja Sea Kayaking and Whale Watching Combo” itinerary, including travel days and three nights hotel in Loreto, offers opportunities to get close to friendly whales, explore uninhabited desert islands by stable sea kayak and snorkel along isolated coves in clear turquoise waters – in essence to see the best of Baja, fully led by naturalist guides. “This is by far our most wildly popular trip and perfect for novices” smiles Terry Prichard, company founder.
Clients fly 1 hour non-stop from Los Angeles to Loreto. From there they cross the Baja California peninsula to the Pacific coast into Magdalena Bay for the day to watch gray whales and their newly born calves at close range from the safety of motorized skiffs. Then back over to Loreto for five-days of sea kayaking and camping in Mexico’s newest national park – Parque Nacional Bahia de Loreto – which serves as sanctuary for blue-footed boobies, fin and blue whales, dolphins and sea lions. UNESCO has declared the unique Sea of Cortez Islands a World Heritage Site. “No prior kayaking experience is necessary – just good health and an eagerness for new experiences” states Prichard, adding “We pamper you, including meeting you at the Loreto airport and preparing fine meals from scratch”. “We went carbon neutral last year and donate to local environmental organizations.”
Weekly departures are scheduled from January 27 through March 22, 2009. The price of $1330 US dollars per person (double occupancy) includes three hotel nights in Loreto; all meals; all camping, sleeping and sea kayaking equipment; airport transfer and ground transportation, instruction and guides. 10% off for youth ages 8-17.
