Why this trip: Novice sea kayaking and snorkeling Loreto Bay UNESCO World Heritage site with twice daily introductory yoga – fully catered and guided – just bring yourself!
LORETO, BAJA CALIFORNIA — Master yoga instructors, in conjunction with Sea Kayak Adventures Inc. are offering new Yoga and Whales tours in Loreto, Baja California Sur, Mexico that combines daily yoga, kayaking, snorkeling, with a little adventure, suitable for novices, and fully catered.
Each sea kayaking day begins with a yoga session on the beach led by our certified yoga instructors. Then participants will accompany naturalist guides on nature hikes, whale watching, snorkeling and sea kayaking outings depending on the trip. Additional activities will include treks along deserted beaches, exploring uninhabited islands and star gazing. Each evening begins with a restorative yoga session while guides prepare happy hour – margaritas on the beach at sunset! No prior kayaking or yoga experience is necessary.
The October & March/April tours give novices an opportunity to sea kayak and snorkel to their heart’s content in the Loreto Bay National Park, in the Sea of Cortez. The park is also a UNESCO World Heritage site. Company owner Terry Prichard, states “One third of the world’s marine mammals live in the Sea of Cortez. On most tours October through April our tour groups view dolphins, sea lions, fin whales and if very lucky the elusive plankton-eating whale shark or the blue whale, which is the largest animal ever to have lived on earth.”
The “Gray Whales of Magdalena Bay & Kayaking Combo with Yoga Jan 27-Feb 3, 2013” tour are perfect for those whale lovers who want to get eyeball to eyeball with a baby gray whale from a motorized skiff and stay at a safari style basecamp in the heart of gray whale congregation – hear the whale blows at night from your cozy tent!
The itineraries “cherry-pick” the best parts of the park’s uninhabited islands to camp and explore, according to Prichard. Participants stay at comfortable camps situated on secluded island beaches, and can choose to do daily yoga as the sun rises or the sun sets daily over the tranquil waters. Yoga is always optional. Naturalist guides will do all the cooking and camp chores as well as teaching the basics of sea kayaking and leading nature walks. “Just leave all the details to us,” smiles Prichard, adding, “our yoga tours are wildly popular so these will fill up quickly.”
The tours departs from Loreto and includes airport transfer upon arrival, two nights’ hotel in Loreto, two or three nights’ safari-style camping, all guided activities, all meals while camping, daily yoga sessions, all taxes, all land transport and naturalist guides. Small groups; gourmet food! Price: $1050 for the Dec 4-9, 2011 tour and $895 for the Feb 10-14, 2012 tour. Airfare to Loreto, meals in town, gratuities are not included.
