Adventure Travel


The Sea of Cortez

Stefanie Woods co-owner of Backwoods Adventures has been guiding Sea Kayaking tours in the Sea of Cortez for over 25 years. When Stef, Chris, and the kids finish their summer season in McCall renting canoe, kayak, and standup boards on Payette Lake and the Upper North Fork on the Payette River... this family travels South of the Border to Baja, Mexico to guide their Sea Kayaking Tours in the Sea of Cortez out of La Paz! Called the "world's aquarium" by Jacques Cousteau, this group of islands we tour is one of the most biologically diverse marine areas in the world and an important ecotourism destination.

From magical sunrises to sunsets with fantastic happy hours watching pelicans dive-bomb for dinner, to authentic Mexican cuisine... with plenty of fantastic fresh sea food caught daily by our crew... To paddling the azure crystal clear waters, swimming and snorkeling with playful sea lions, surrounded by pods of Bottlenose and Common dolphins, viewing amazing seabirds... you will walk away with a fantastic adventure that will stay with you for a lifetime!

We offer a variety of trips throughout the fall and early winter season... some designed specifically for families. Please inquire about our dates and pricing... call 208-469-9067 or check our current dates and tour descriptions below...
