No matter what your interest, this trip HAS IT ALL!

The Captains of Sankofa Odyssey are pleased to present their 2017 Bareboat Chartering Adventure to the islands of the Baja Peninsula in the Sea of Cortez. Easy to access with stunning beauty and adventure, this destination has something for everyone.

“Bareboat chartering” is a participatory means of travel/vacation. It is not a cruise. There are no waiters, maids, cooks – we sail the boat together, we cook together, we clean together, and we party . . . together!

Sample Itinerary for La Paz 2017

Day one: Ensenada Grande

Ensenada Grande is a popular anchorage with turquoise waters, rocky cliffs, and white sand beaches. Hike through the arroyos, lounge on the beach, and snorkel along the rocky shoreline.

Day Two: Isla Partida

Located just off the northwest tip of Isla Partida, Los Islotes is famous for its sea lion rookery. The National Park office has installed mooring buoys for dinghies on both the northern and southern shores. To the southwest you’ll find El Bajito, a popular diving spot teeming with tropical fish. Take a short sail to San Evaristo, a quaint fishing village, to spend the night in a well-protected anchorage.

Day Three and Day Four: Isla San Francisco

White sand beaches, red rock cliffs, and crystal blue water make the crescent-shaped bay of Isla San Francisco another popular anchorage. This picture-perfect cove offers sublime hiking, snorkeling, fishing, and beaches. The bay is large enough to accommodate plenty of boats, and has a good holding ground.

Day Five: Amortajada

The anchorage at Amortajada is located on the southwestern tip of Isla San Joe. Even if you don’t plan to stay the night, a dinghy or kayak trip through the mangroves to the main lagoon is a must. Remember to bring binoculars – it’s common to spot egrets and herons.

Day Six: Bahia San Gabriel

Bahia San Gabriel is a large, beautiful bay and offers a brilliant white sand beach – one of the best on Isla Espiritu Santo. A trail through the small arroyo on the southern end of the beach links Bahia San Gabriel to this enormous beach. Looking for some underwater scenery? The rocky western shore of Punta Prieta and the southern point of Ensenada de la Dispensa are prime snorkeling areas.

Day Seven: Purto Ballandra

With another white sand beach and shimmering blue water, Puerto Ballandra is a wonderful playground for any snorkeler, hiker, or kayaker. It’s also home to the famous Mushroom Rock “El Hongo.”
