Baja Sea Kayaking-Why travel with Boundless Journeys?

Baja has become one of North America’s top sea kayaking spots, and for good reason. This peninsula, a crooked finger of land west of mainland Mexico, is tantalizingly close to the United States and yet still surprisingly wild and untamed. Flanked by the Sea of Cortez (or Gulf of California) to the east and the Pacific to the west, it is an 800-mile strip of desert bounded by over 2,000 miles of stunning coastline. Much of it remains inaccessible, except by boat. Despite its growing popularity, much of it remains unexplored, except by those adventurers willing to step off the beaten path.

The kayak provides an unparalleled vehicle for exploring this remote and remarkably beautiful coast. With its shallow draft, a kayak can enter any cove, navigate a lonely echoing channel, or steer a course through a maze of offshore boulders. It can be transported to almost any launching spot along the peninsula, be hauled out into a cliff niche, or pulled above the high-tide line of a beautiful, secluded beach. It is less expensive than a yacht, more unobtrusive and ecologically sound than a motorboat. It can be paddled well and safely, even by the beginner. It is great exercise, a perfect craft for the bird-, whale-, and wildlife-watcher, and a good way to burn off the pounds that creep on somewhere in Ensenada.

Amazing Travel Tips: Boundless Journeys Adventure Travel

By

Monday, May 11th, 2009

Adventure travel – whether hiking through the hill towns of Tuscany, trekking through Bhutan and the Himalayas, or sea kayaking in Baja’s Sea of Cortez – creates a sense of excitement and anticipation in even the most seasoned of travelers. This type of travel provides a way to escape the ordinary, and discover and explore with a fresh perspective. Many however are often scared away by the term “adventure”, and according to Webster’s Dictionary:

“adventure” is defined as: 1. a hazardous undertaking 2. an unusual or suspenseful experience 3. participation in hazardous or exciting experiences

“travel” is defined as: 1. to move from one place to another: JOURNEY 2. To journey from one place to another as a traveling sales representative 3. to be transmitted, as light

Adventure Travel TipsIn these words lie the loose definition of “adventure travel.” Strictly defined, “adventure travel” could mean: “a hazardous undertaking as a traveling sales representative” or “a suspenseful experience being transmitted as light.” However, there is much latitude to create a definition unique to your desired experience. For example, the true essence of adventure travel to me is defined as “unusual or exciting experiences journeying from one place to another.” Or more succinctly stated “Boundless Journeys.” Dial up the adventure, or turn it back. How exciting or how unusual you prefer your travels defines the personal experience that all of us have while traveling.

To Woo Travelers, Airlines Slash Fares

Adventure Travel, there’s never been a better time.

While the current economic situation may have many of us wondering whether or not we will be able to take our yearly adventure abroad, there are a few things to consider before deciding against it. From a pure cost perspective, it has been at least a decade since there were such great travel values. If you can, now is a great time to take advantage of some of the byproducts of a poor economy. The dollar is stronger than it has been in quite some time, tour operators such as Boundless Journeys and the airlines are offering some significant savings due to decreased demand. For some it may be difficult to justify a walking trip through Tuscany, a hiking trip in Bhutan, or a wildlife safari in Botswana, but for those that are ready to seize the opportunity, this is a tremendous time to travel.
