Kayaking in the Sea of Cortez
Kayaking is the perfect way to explore the Sea of Cortez and the "striking natural beauty in a dramatic setting" that lead to the area being declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The amazing scenery is formed by a rugged shoreline, desert islands and white sandy beaches where you can admire the contrast and reflection of the desert with the turquoise waters.Itinerary
When it comes to sea kayaking, the place to go is the Sea of Cortez. This UNESCO World Heritage Site is home to 39% of the world's total number of marine mammal species, accounts for a third of the world´s marine cetacean species, and also has 891 fish species. The Sea of Cortez is a 90 minute drive from Todos Santos. You can choose from two different options. Snorkeling and coastal kayaking in the Sea of Cortez or kayaking in the mangroves and protected waters of Balandra Bay.
During the coastal paddle, you will kayak/paddle along the coast and 3 rocky islands which are home to rookeries for blue herons and blue-footed boobies and even a family of sea lions. You will then snorkel in great spots accessible only by kayak and have a celebratory lunch. It is great for all levels, but some strength and endurance is required.
You can choose to kayak at the Balandra Bay and this is a great trip for paddlers of all skill levels and doesn't require as much strength as option 1.
