If Rocky Point, Mexico is anything, it is a photo opportunity waiting to happen. We have some of the most magnificent scenery in the world: breathtaking sunsets, dolphins and sea lions, volcanic craters, natural sand dunes, pristine beaches, protected estuaries and so much more. You can snap photos from one of many high points in the area such as “Whale Hill” or if you want to get higher take a parasail ride or jump on the ultra light.
One of the best photographic vantage points is to be at eye level with your subject and what better vessel to get you there than a kayak? Lucky for you we have regular oar kayaks as well as peddle kayaks for those not proficient at rowing. There are no limitations when taking a kayak out into the Sea of Cortez except sunscreen up and get the camera ready. Even if you just hang out around the shoreline you are sure to see dolphins, schools of fish, sting rays and perhaps a sea lion or two.
For the more adventurous Puerto Peñasco is home to a few beautiful estuaries than wind back and forth for miles. These protected pathways of turquoise water rise and empty with the tide. At high tide you are eye level with the salt grass and beautiful birds such as the majestic Great Blue Heron. The estuaries are a birders paradise as well as a photographer’s or just a nature lover. Birds aren’t the only creatures hanging out in the estuaries – you may spot a coyote or two and are surely to see a couple varieties of crabs. Kayaking silently through these wetlands are the best way to see the plant and animal life of these truly beautiful areas. And it’s the only way you can experience areas that are inaccessible by vehicle or by foot. Go on your own adventure or take a guided tour to learn more about the area.
Kayaks are available for rent in town and along Sandy Beach. If you are an owner or a guest at Laguna Shores Oceanfront Resort Community you are in luck because not only are there kayaks for everyone to use, but there is a beautiful estuary just west of the property. You won’t have to paddle far to be one with nature at Laguna Shores in Rocky Point, Mexico.
