We continue to be respectful of the damage Covid and other illness can inflict. We insist on good hygiene around camp and recommend vaccination. While there are good hospitals in Ensenada, anyone suffering severe symptoms from Covid, or any other illness/injury, would be better served in the US or their home country. It is your responsibility to have/acquire sufficient evacuation/health care insurance to meet your needs and expectations. A google search for "adventure travel insurance" will produce a variety of results to meet a variety of needs.
We will drive from San Diego to our Festival site on April 14, 2024 (departure about 9:30am) and drive back to San Diego on April 20 (arriving about 5pm).

Our event is held along a magical stretch of coastline in northern Baja where a rocky peninsula juts into the Pacific. Here, the ocean swell interacts with the rocky, craggy coastline to produce a multitude of play spots for the adventurous kayaker! Two small islands a few miles offshore provide a spectacular destination for intrepid explorers. The wildlife that the cold, clear waters nurture is outstanding.
One of my favorite things about kayaking is experiencing new places and meeting new people. There's nothing like traveling at 3 or 4 mph to get to know a place! Since we're in Mexico, we're going to enjoy the culture, food, history, and uniqueness of our location both on and off the water.
The location is about 3 hours south of San Diego and 45 minutes south of Ensenada, Baja.
