Spring Break Baja: The “un-Cabo” Family-Fun-in-the-Sun Solution

Loreto, Mexico –Sea Kayak Adventures, Inc. today launched a new array of family-only tours in Baja and BC Canada for 2013:  The company has found the perfect venues for multi-generational soft adventure tours – including their new for spring break 2012 “Baja Family Kayaking Base Camp” designed for those who wish to experience Loreto Bay National Marine Park UNESCO World Heritage site and the islands of Loreto or La Paz in comfort and style.

Let your family share the breathtaking beauty of Baja with an adventure of a lifetime – at a relaxed, vacation-pace! Kid-friendly base camp trips allow for easy mornings without the concern of breaking camp, so you can sip your coffee and enjoy the rising sun from the comfort of a beach chair while the guides prepare breakfast for you and your family. A support boat accompanies these tours, so youngsters who tire of kayaking can ride along. Let entertaining and highly educated guides lead hikes, play games, and host hermit crab races while you enjoy happy hour (or participate!). Itinerary suitable for youth ten and older who are at least 4 1/2 feet tall (other June-July dates available as well) – youth under age 18 get 10% off. Parents and grandparents love being pampered while teens play and learn new skills and experience nature at its finest!

Create a new family tradition and priceless memories with your teenagers that will last a lifetime – learn to paddle a sea kayak and bond with your tween or teenager as endangered blue and fin whales – more than four times as long as your kayak – plumb the depths for tasty crustaceans in Baja’s Sea of Cortez. March and April 2012, a selection of six-day (four days of paddling and two hotel nights) trips is being offered. Paddle a leisurely 3-4 hours per day looking for the world’s largest animals and explore desert islands in Mexico’s newest national marine park – Loreto Bay National Marine Park/UNESCO World Heritage Site. No prior experience is necessary.

Along the way you’ll also spot frolicking dolphins and sea lions, snorkel with angelfish in 72-degree water, and search for rare blue-footed boobies and blue whales. Spend nights camping on white sand beaches in sheltered coves and dining on lasagna and dutch oven brownies under brilliantly starry skies framed by volcanic rock cliffs. Teens love the hermit crab races after dark on the beach!

Tours depart from and return to Loreto and/or La Paz, in Baja California Sur, Mexico. Stable two-person kayaks, paddling gear and instruction, snorkeling gear, meals and all camping supplies (including sleeping bags) are provided. Our naturalist guides are enthusiastic experts at activities helping families have fun together! The company also unveiled a new non-kayaking “Baja Family Gray Whale Base Camp” in Magdalena Bay gray whale sanctuary/calving ground in February and early March 2013, for kids as young as eight.

Price starts at $995 US per adult (and 10% off for teens) including two nights’ lodging in Loreto and three nights’ camping. Airfare is not included. Alaska/Horizon Airlines offer direct service (1 hour jet flight) into Loreto (LTO) from Los Angeles (LAX), or fly via Los Cabos.

Sea Kayak Adventures Inc is the only sea kayaking outfitter in Baja and BC Canada listed on National Geographic Adventure Magazine’s: “Best Adventure Travel Companies on Earth 2009” and named on National Geographic Travel.com “Best Deals for Adventurous Travelers 2010” and “Best Whale Watching Locations 2011”.
