Baja Trip – Punta Banda Peninsula


Posted by Greg on February 17, 2013

 

Back in early January, I had the wonderful opportunity to spend some time with Jen Kleck (Aqua Adventures) and newly met paddling friends – Andrea, Chris, Dan, Tony and Victor down in Baja.  For those not familiar with Jen, she holds the distinction of being the first North American to obtain the BCU Coach 5 award.  And that’s in addition to being an all out fantastic person.

 

The area we paddled in, along the Punta Banda Peninsula (Victor’s backyard), and out to Isla Todos Santos, has amazing rock gardening, sea caves, and a ton of wildlife and including whales!   In April, Jen and Victor are hosting the 1st Baja Kayak Fest.  Check out the event here http://www.bajakayakfest.com/  and slide show of the area which includes photos from the trip.

Definitely a bucket list place for every kayaker!

Peace & Cheers, Paula
