Baja Adventure – Grey Whale Kayaking adventure in Bahia Magdalena, Mexico

July 10, 2009

This exceptional adventure with best friends covered 47 miles of a very remote and spectacular part of Baja virtually untouched by human impact.

We paddled from North to South along a narrow channel along Isla Magdalena in calm waters protected from the turbulent Pacific. Towering sand dunes provided comfy nooks for us to camp and were a stunning visual contrast to the labyrinth of mangroves along the coastline. Magdalena bay is one of three winter homes to the Gray whales who migrate 6000 miles to mate and give birth in these protected waters. Paddling the narrow waterways from Lopez Mateos through the Curva Del Diabo to Puerto Magdalen we averaged 9.7 miles, approximately three hours of paddling a day in our expedition kayaks. We enjoyed beach-combing the Pacific coast, sledding down sand dunes and the abundant, fresh natural clams of the hidden jewel of Baja Sur; Bahia Magdalena.

Five days, four nights:
(3) Single fiberglass Kayaks
(1) Skiff/Shuttle Service from San Carlos to the northern end of Isla Magdalena (South of Lopez Mateos)
(1) Skiff/Shuttle Service from Puerto Magdalena to San Carlos
