Baja Day Tours and Trip Extensions
Baja California is a fascinating place and an adventurers' dream which offers a vast array of activities, such as, history, art, and culinary pursuits. Baja is a huge peninsula, with six major mountain ranges in total. Nestled in these mountains are many small towns and villages that see very few travelers compared to the coastal communities yet offer so much that is of interest.
While most of the Sea Kayak Adventures activities take place in coastal areas, there are also trips that explore the interior, such as a hiking trip to see the gigantic wall murals with local cowboys and a one day Communities and Mining History tour that explores the mining towns of El Triumfo and San Antonio, located near La Paz.
These tours may be added on as an extension to the marine-focused Baja sea kayaking trips and Baja whale-watching tours also listed on the Mexico dive tours web page. Below are the standard one-day incredible Baja tour options.
