Calendar

A note on our courses for the 2020 season:

MIKCo has decided to amend our approach to providing our customary general public sea kayaking programs. We are being cautious and not listing courses for open enrollment. We will continue with Covid-Safe Boat Sales and small Private Instructional Courses and Trips. Please see our article: MIKCo's Y 2020 Season.


UPCOMING TRIPS

We're going to Baja!

Sea Kayaking Baja
Loreto to La Paz, Baja Sur, Mexico

March 10 - 19, 2021. The coastline between Loreto and La Paz has long been a paddling classic because of its dramatic scenery and remoteness. Please contact Tom to inquire about this trip of a lifetime.

Danzante
Loreto Islands Women's Adventure, Baja Sur, Mexico

March 23 - 28, 2021. What happens on a Women’s kayak trip that doesn’t happen on a typical trip? Some will never know! Gals, if you enjoy the company of other adventurous women, we’d love to share the magic with you! To learn more, contact Liz.

We highly recommend perusing other offerings at Sea Kayak Baja Mexico. SKBM, owned by Ginni Callahan, remains a small company by choice - unique, passionate about what they do, and good at it. Ginni oversees the operation, coaches, and guides. She is committed to employing locals and conscientiously supports the economy in Loreto. Sea Kayak Baja Mexico is a Nigel Dennis Kayaks (SKUK) Expedition Center.
