Leave La Paz for Magdalena Bay by van with your guide. Stop at local rancho for snacks experience traditional ranchero lifestyle. Arrive at Magdalena Bay and board a small boat which takes you to your campsite on a secluded island. Meet your hosts, eat lunch, and settle into camp. Join a local expert on an orientation to the in-water sea turtle conservation project. Enjoy happy hour and explore the island.
Rise with the sun and climb aboard the panga to help fishermen set their nets in the channel. This process initiates the sea turtle monitoring. If you are not an early riser, enjoy a relaxed breakfast while watching birds and marine mammals that surround the island, and then kayak out to observe the turtle nets. Monitoring goes on throughout the day. While not eating, participating in the monitoring, or relaxing, grab a kayak and explore the bay. Your guide will lead an after-dinner session of constellation and star identification.
Grab a clipboard after breakfast and head down to the beach. Finish measuring and weighing the sea turtles before releasing them back to the wild. Enjoy lunch and a siesta. In the afternoon, paddle through lush mangrove canals which are teeming with birds and marine life. Your guide serves as your naturalist and combines ecology with local knowledge to treat you to the best of Magdalena Bay.

Enjoy a picnic-lunch on pristine sand dunes that roll down to the Pacific Ocean. Return to camp, and spend some time reading, napping, or playing on the beach. Alternatively, join your guide for bird before sunset. Gather around the campfire for stories and star gazing after dinner.
