Isla Espiritu Santo, an uninhabited island in the Sea of Cortez and UNESCO World Heritage Site, is one of the best marine-life viewing destinations in the world. Whale sharks, dolphins, sea turtles, manta rays, and abundant tropical fish call the clear, turquoise-blue waters home. Birds are plentiful too, with blue-footed boobies, reddish egrets, great blue herons, and yellow-footed gulls frequenting the skies and shores.
The island itself sits in beautiful contrast to the sea, with its red, rocky cliffs, stunning sandy bays, interesting lava formations—and even rock art, left by long-gone indigenous peoples. Isla Espiritu Santo is a remarkable place to explore, and this trip is a remarkable way to explore. You kayak with naturalist guides from beach to beautiful beach, staying in comfortable walk-in tents in fully catered camps. Each day unfolds however you want it to, snorkeling, walking deserted beaches, swimming with sea lions, bird watching, or paddling hidden lagoons. Evenings bring margaritas and millions of stars. Your blissful island adventure is bookended with good times in the culturally-rich and vibrant town of Todos Santos, on Baja’s Pacific coast.
