Fully Catered &
Co-operatively Catered Expeditions

Fully Catered Trips

Our Fully Catered trips have a more relaxed feel as a motor boat (panga) escorts the group and transports all our gear from one camp to the next. This means that your kayak is light and of course, there is no need to pack and unpack it each day.

As well as your kayak guides, you have a cook and cook's assistant, so while you are out paddling, hiking or snorkeling your next meal is being prepared and our crew takes care of all the washing up. Also, having a motor boat along means that we are able to take ice chests full of cold beer and other refreshing beverages. We are also able to offer a more flexible program. For instance, younger children may choose to ride in the panga to the next camping beach. We can also provide side trips to otherwise inaccessible snorkeling locations or go on a fishing trip to catch dinner. We can carry larger shades, tables and chairs so camping becomes a more comfortable experience. You will even have a solar shower to rinse off at the end of each day. Please note that we still require your assistance to set and take down your own tent and help loading and unloading the boat every time we change camp.

Co-operatively Catered Trips

The main feature of this type of trip is that there is no motor boat support. Therefore, you are kayaking fully loaded kayaks and participating in all the camping and cooking duties, under the leadership of your guides.

At the beginning of the trip, you will learn how to efficiently pack your sea-kayak. It will then become a group task each day to load all the expedition gear into the kayaks before paddling to the next camping beach. The group will all help set up camp, cook meals and clean dishes. We have a pre-set meal plan, and the guides take overall responsibility, but everyone will take turns helping with the food prep, etc

On the 9 day Espiritu Santo circumnavigation trip, we make a mid week re-provision effectively halving the supplies we need to carry. It also enables us to take away your accumulated trash and take you out by motor boat to the sea lion colony to snorkel with the sea lion pups.

We find this expeditionary style of trip enhances the feeling of comradeship and creates a greater sense of adventure and self-sufficiency.
