Mexican Island Getaway

Trip Overview

Stunning scenery surrounds the desert islands of the Loreto National Park! So do colorful snorkeling, soaring seabirds and a universe of stars. The Island Getaway is delightful taste of the islands in a small package, with no kayaking experience necessary.

Paddle or motorboat to an island, camp for one night, or up to five nights, and enjoy your days how you like. Your guide is a fun, certified professional, and a great chef!

The most popular Getaway destination is Danzante Island, one of 5 islands in the National Marine Park of the Bay of Loreto. UNESCO calls this the richest and most varied of any island-sea property on the World Heritage list. Less than 8 miles around, Danzante has the highest number of accessible beaches per mile, plus two hiking trails with stunning overlooks.

Private Getaways are available, with rates on a sliding scale based on number of participants and number of days. Discount for kids 5-13 years.

October and May can be toasty, and November, March & April are usually delightful! Snorkeling is best in October & November when the water is clear and warm.
