There are several options for kayaking in La Paz.
You can choose between: kayaking with sea lions, kayaking in Balandra or Tecolote, kayaking in La Paz bay, or kayaking along the volcanic rock cliffs of San Juan de la Costa.
No matter which itinerary you choose, we guarantee that it will be an incredible experience that will not leave you indifferent.
It is recommended to carry out the activity on days with little wind so that the physical activity is not very demanding.
Kayaking with sea lions:
We will depart from a beach with turquoise waters aboard our kayaks to enjoy the incredible scenery offered by the area. Along the way we will pass through incredible places where we can see nesting birds and with some luck we will see schools of mobulas, jumping fish, and dolphins, in addition to the guaranteed sea lions.
We will leave at 9 am and the way to reach the sea lion colony takes between an hour and an hour and a half, depending on the wind. Afterwards we will make a stop at one of the nearby beaches to snorkel and eat while we relax for a while. Finally we will start the way back and arrive at the beach to return to La Paz around 12 or 1 pm. The tour is around 9 to 10 km in total.
Kayaking from Tecolote to Balandra:
We start at 9 am in Playa Tecolote to go to the famous Balandra beach in Kayak. Once there, we will visit the famous Mushroom Rock, the mangrove swamp, an almost pristine beach, and a rocky reef where we can snorkel. from there We will take the route back, following the volcanic rock cliffs in the area. The route is 9 to 10 km.
Kayaking La Paz Bay:
This route is ideal to be done at sunrise or sunset and is shorter than the rest, approximately 5 km. With a bit of luck we will be able to see dolphins, especially if the activity takes place in the morning. Finally, we will reach the shores on the other side of the bay, where we will enjoy mangrove channels with many invertebrates to see, and interesting scenarios such as wreck sailboats. We will have time to eat and enjoy.
Kayaking in San Juan de la Costa:
San Juan de la Costa is located in the north, and is part of the Bay of La Paz. In this route of 12 to 14 km we will follow the coastline, which is characterized by a different landscape of cliffs, volcanic rock beaches, and black sands, very different from what we are used to seeing in the most popular beaches of La Paz.
In cold seasons we can snorkel in shallow sargassum forests full of marine life, both invertebrates and rocky reef fish and bottom rays. In warm season we will be able to swim between rocky reefs and coral patches full of interesting fish and invertebrates. It is a good place to watch seabirds and shorebirds, and the perfect place to get away from the places most visited by tourism in what is, without a doubt, a unique and very special experience.
