Holiday River Expeditions offers several amazing Baja sea kayaking vacations. The Whale Watch/Sea Kayak expedition is a 10-day vacation that begins at LaPaz, Baja on the Sea of Cortez. This enjoyable and exhilarating trip includes snorkeling and sea kayaking off Espirito Santo Island. Adventure seekers will witness the arrival of the Pacific Gray whales as they return from the icy waters of the Arctic to breed and give birth. The safari-style base camp is nestled in the dunes on a remote barrier island Magdalena Bay. This is definitely the, "Trip of a Lifetime." The Island Hopping vacation explores the secluded shores of desert islands in the Sea of Cortez. This is an amazing 9-day trip where you’ll visit 10 islands and camp on 5 of them that includes kayaking and snorkeling. The Espiritu Santo Island trip is an 8-day adventure kayaking and camping along the shores of beautiful Espiritu Santo Island. Finally, the Baja Coast trip is a perfect escape for advanced sea kayakers alike. This 9-day adventure includes whale watching, snorkeling and sea kayaking. All meals, hotels and other accommodations in Baja are included in the cost.

My wife and I did the 2 day mountain biking in the La Sal Mountians and followed by a two river raft trip on the Colorado with Holiday River Expeditions. Good fun! These people know how to make the adventure fun and basically carefree. Professional all the way. We're already planning our next trip.

I have rafted with Holiday River multiple times in various locations and every trip has been excellent. The guides are fantastic: knowledgeable, energetic, personable, well-trained, careful... I could go on. The gear they use - custom designed - and how they load their rafts - is the best and the safest in the industry. If you want to get away... More

Our Lodore Canyon trip was specular! Holiday River was great. Every aspect of the trip from planning to end of run was so well done. Our guides, Colin, Trevor and Elle were great and so knowledgeable and capable. We're planning to return next season with larger family group, and looking at a trip this fall.

Although I am now too old for wild river rafting, Holiday River is terrific. Dee and Sue Holiday ran a class operation. The guides are knowledgeable and accommodating. They cook great food and are a lot of fun. I always felt very safe on my ten expeditions with them.

Our week on the Main Salmon River was the best! Visiting Campbell's Ferry taught me more about the colorful history of the area. We learned about forest fires, how to spot common merganzer ducks, big horn sheep, mule deer and golden eagles. We ate a delicious ricotta and pesto appetizer one night that I can't wait to copy! The guides... More
