This itinerary is for the adventurer who is interested in Eco Tourism and experiencing the contrasts between the desert and Sea. Quiet Anchorages, Fishing, Hiking, Delightful Sunsets and Total Relaxation!
Day one – Loreto
Arrive at the dock in what is considered the oldest human settlement on the Baja Peninsula, Loreto population 11,800. Loreto is on the inside of the Baja, on the indigo blue Sea of Cortez. Your crew will welcome you aboard with a cool refreshing cocktail and get your group orientated to the yacht and your new surroundings.
Loreto’s weather is good all year round, averaging in the 80’s with a dry tropical heat enabling you to take part in many of the local favourite activities which include:
Things to Do: The Loreto National Marine Park (which has over 800 species of marine life many of them endangered), tour the beautiful restored Mission of San Javier in the mountains behind the city, kayak, dive, ride horse, go mountain biking and beach combing.
Evening stop at Isla Coronado.
Day two – Isla Carmen
Distance to cover 26 Miles to Isla Carmen
The highlight activity on Isla Carmen is the kayaking circumnavigating the island, swimming and snorkeling.
Day 3 and 4 - Isla Espiritu Santo and Isla Partida
Isla Espiritu Santo and Isla Partida 90 miles south of Isla Carmen –
The island is uninhabited but exceptionally beautiful due to the contrasting landscapes of blue sea and reddish limestone cliffs.
We recommend touring the Natural Marine park of Isla Espiritu Santo. UNESCO protects this island as a biosphere and its ecotourism draw, is the main tourist attraction. The region as well as Loreto Bay rank among the highest in biological and ecological value.
Ensenada del Candelero (Candlestick Cove) is another special spot to explore. Great for snorkelling and kayaking. You could also venture out to the Roca monument, which is a nearby reef that truly will open your eyes to the amazing diversity of sea life.
Move the yacht 3 miles to a neighboring island called Isla Partida. Anchor out and hop on the tender over to Los Islotes, an amazing rocky protrusion right on the tip of Espiritu Santo Island. This is the place that you can actually swim with the sea lions and their pups! Ensenada Grande beach on Isla Partida was voted the most beautiful beach in Mexico by the UK publication, The Travel Magazine, February 2007.
Day 5 - La Paz
Move 20 miles south and pull into La Paz, the stunning capital of the state of Baja California Sur.
La Paz is a genuinely charming place to visit with an array of things to do. The city has interesting history, yet offers most modern conveniences that you might need ashore. After spending 4 nights aboard the yacht take the opportunity to experience La Paz’s delicacies, dining and nightlife.
Shopping is found in the town plaza, and is boarded by a long waterfront that extends for several miles. Local artistry abounds and is scattered all along the waterfront.
Day 6 - La Paz
Use the day in La Paz to explore the region. Excursions are always readily available. Head out to the artist pueblo of Todos Santos for some local talent.
A famous landmark worth seeing is in downtown La Paz, the Wayland wall, well known around the world.
Fishing is always a popular sport in Mexico, especially in La Paz. Try it either off the back of the yacht or perhaps hire a sport fishing boat to really try your hand at the big game.
