Loreto Mexico is a dream destination for those who love exploring the outdoors by land or by sea. One of the most popular things to do in Loreto is kayaking. Gliding across the clear waters of the Sea of Cortez, you’re surrounded by picture-perfect views of the gently rolling mountains and an endless stretch of turquoise water. With the independence of paddling your own kayak or sharing one with a partner, you can get a serious cardio and upper-body workout in, or you can take your time to enjoy the scenic views and the serenity of the sea.

As you make your travel plans for the next year, be sure to put kayaking in Loreto Baja California on your bucket list.


Kayaking is one of the best ways to explore the Loreto Bay National Marine Park, the area of sea stretching out from the shores of Loreto Mexico into the Sea of Cortez. Famously dubbed “The Aquarium of The World” by Jacques Cousteau, the Loreto Bay National Marine Park is filled with wonders to be discovered. Within this unique biosphere, you can find hundreds of species of fish, rare birds, a variety of sea turtles, and even whales. As you’re kayaking in Loreto Baja California in the winter months, you may even see a humpback whale breach the surface of the ocean. Rising above the sea are the Islands of Loreto, rugged cliffs lined with sandy beaches. These secluded spots are perfect for escaping the city and spotting tropical wildlife. 

As you explore the sea surrounding Loreto Baja California, you can get a healthy workout in by kayaking. If you’re paddle swiftly, you’re heart rate rises, giving you a good cardiovascular workout. Kayaking is also great for improving your upper body strength, and as you sit up straight for a prolonged period of time, you’ll start to feel your core muscles work too. While being on vacation usually means a break from exercising, kayaking is one of the most exciting things to do in Loreto, and it will help you burn off a few calories after eating tacos and lounging around Loreto hotels.


Taking a kayak out onto the water is also peaceful and calming as you glide over the glassy surface of the sea and listen to the sound of seagulls cawing. Breathing in the fresh ocean breeze and surrounding yourself with nature relieves stress and anxiety, soothing your mind so that you can find a sense of stillness. You can even stop your kayak just to soak up the beauty that surrounds you. When kayakers return to their Loreto hotels, they find themselves more laid back, feeling stronger physically and mentally.

While there’s a variety of things to do in Loreto, kayaking gives you the opportunity to exercise your body and restore your spirit while exploring the ocean. Surrounded by views of the islands, Loreto hotels, mountains, and the sea, you can discover the treasures of the unique Loreto Bay National Marine Park ecosystem. Whether you’ve been kayaking for years or are new to the sport, there’s no better place to head out to sea than Loreto Mexico.
