Below are some photos and videos from my four-day kayak/camping trip in Bahía Concepción, Baja California Sur.

I started from the town of Mulegé, from the river of the same name and entered the bay near the lighthouse at its mouth. I proceeded south and spent the first night on an empty beach near Playa Santispac. The second day I headed farther south past Coyote Bay and camped on another empty beach near Playa Buenaventura. I practiced some self-rescue techniques including rolling (see video below) and re-entries including a cowboy re-entry (actually a reverse-cowboy and yes I am still talking about kayaking!) and a paddle float re-entry. The third day I crossed over to the peninsula against a moderate northerly wind which made for an interesting crossing. I camped on a desolate stretch of beach across from Coyote Bay. The wind died down overnight and my paddle back to Mulegé on the fourth day was under near-perfect paddling conditions. All told it was about 30 miles of paddling

Here are some videos of me on the bay:
