Empowering, fun and practical, Learn in Paradise is a vacation with a purpose. Form a broad base on which to build your enjoyment of paddling, including rescue basics, boat control, awareness of the sea, and experience working together as a team. Learn to use the wind and waves efficiently and make solid decisions with what Mother Nature hands out.
Learn in Paradise is a camping trip in the Loreto National Marine Park. These islands are included in UNESCO’s World Heritage listing of the Islands of the Gulf, what Jacques Cousteau called the “world’s aquarium”. Enjoy time to snorkel, explore, and just mess about in kayaks in warm water and a pristine environment with coaches at hand to help you achieve your own goals.
Comfortable wet exit and basic boat control are prerequisites.
