Seasons
Baja has a desert climate. The weather is typically dry, warm, and sunny, with temperatures ranging between 60 - 90 F. While it may be very warm during the day, temperatures can drop down to the 60’s (50’s at Whale Camp) during the evening hours. Please plan to pack appropriate layers for the evenings. If you are interested in more specific information regarding the weather in Baja, we highly suggest this website (http://www.wunderground.com/history/ ). If you put in the location you are traveling, and the date, it will provide you with historical weather data that you can use to plan for your upcoming adventure.

Loreto is in a desert where the possibility of rain is very small, but it can happen. Winds can occur anytime but are more frequent from December through February. If it’s too windy to paddle your guides will have alternative activities for guests to enjoy. There are opportunities to snorkel, hike or just relax on the beach with a margarita. We plan our itineraries to minimize risks posed by weather, but there is always an element of unpredictability in nature. The risk capsizing is reduced by our stable boats, but exists. All of our kayak guides are certified in kayak rescue.

Traditionally, the preferred seasons for visiting Baja are autumn and spring because the weather is temperate.


Winter
The weather in Baja is generally mild in the winter. Water temperatures in the Sea of Cortez is pleasant year-round with the minimum being 65 degrees F in December. Winter can bring ideal weather to Baja California Sur and the Cape area, while the Pacific coastal regions of northern Baja can bring welcome relief from the summer heat of other parts of the peninsula.

Spring

Spring day-time temperatures average 75 to 90 degrees F and night-time temperatures average 50 to 65 degrees F between mid-March and May.
Water temperatures in the Sea of Cortez is usually around 73 degrees F in May requiring the use of a shorty 3mm wet suit for extended snorkeling.

Summer
Summers are generally warm but the proximity to water makes the heat more bearable.

Fall
In October and November, air temperatures range from 80 to 90 degrees F and water temperatures range from 75 to 80 degrees F. Autumn, can be hurricane season, so it’s a good idea to check the weather before departure.


Special note – whale watching
The islands of Loreto National Marine Park, located in the Sea of Cortez, are home for 6 different species of whales including Blue, Fin, Sei, Humpback, Bryde's and Pilot whales. From January through April look for spectacular sightings of Blue, Fin and Humpback whales in the warm, calm waters near Loreto on our Sea of Cortez Islands tours. Magdalena Bay and San Ignacio Lagoon, on the opposite side of the peninsula, are both world-renowned winter nursery grounds of the Gray whales. From late-January to mid-March is the best time to see gray whales.
