Ensenada Kayaking Excursion Reviews
This excursion was better than expected. The guides were excellent, and views were spectacular.
We drove 45 mins to La Bufadora with a tour guide explaining things on the way. So we have a quick city tour. When we arrived on the top of the, we changed, put on our optional wet suit (that wet suit was much bigger than 3mm), and got fitted into our personal floatation devices.
We walked down a few minutes to the coast, and got launched off. There were no single kayaks available, so they always paired you up. Now if you’ve been kayaking, before, you realized how difficult it is to leave the coast and to come in. The guides were so good than we didn’t’ fall down getting in and out of the kayak.
I believe we were out on the ocean for an hour or so. Bring water if you can. It was a cloudy but the sun still beats down on you. We rowed past the blow hole first, to see the local cliff and wild life. Paddling so close to the cliffs was so awesome. It felt like being in pirate of the Caribbean. And we saw birds on the rocks, and some people saw whales too. I wasn’t so lucky, but it’s like a bonus.
Then we kayaked backed to the blow hole. I paddled very close, maybe about 15-20 ft away. I almost feel sorry for the people on top of the cliff looking down on the blowhole because the view from the sea level was way more spectacular. I believe we hung out at the base of the blow hole for about 10 minutes. And the blow hole was cooperating. Keep in mind that you can only see the blow hole at low tide, otherwise it doesn’t blow. Also you can tell if it’s going to blow and how big it’s going to blow because the water level recedes. And you can feel the water recedes too. This was definitely the highlight of the trip.
Afterwards we were hungry so we got tacos next to the launch site. It was fresh, hot, fast, and delicious. If you never had real tacos before, definitely get it. We got the tacos and ate on the way back.
If you love water activities and nature, this is definitely the excursion not to miss
