Loreto -> Mazatlan

This unique trip will offer cruising at its finest through the islands of Baja, as well as a multi-day/night passage from the Baja side of the Sea of Cortez to Mazatlán on mainland Mexico! Typical conditions should give us a downwind cruise on this ~300 nautical mile sail.

This adventure is ideal for those who want to experience the highs of cruising: beautiful water, snorkeling, hiking, and relaxing with the sunset and a cold bevy in hand- but also want to lose site of land and learn about best practices for night watch and offshore sailing.

An example timeline would mean students hop onboard in Puerto Escondido and learn about passage prep by learning to provision, diving into weather routing, night navigation, cooking underway, holding a watch in rotation, and lots of hands on sailing through beautiful islands. There should be options to check out anchorages along the way at either Isla Carmen, Isla Danzante, Isla San Francisco, Isla Espiritu, or Playa Balandra. All of these offer up crystal clear waters, beautiful beaches, great snorkeling and pure relaxation- cruiser style! We'd be aiming to arrive into Mazatlán with at least a day to explore the cities rich art, music and foodie culture!

The trip includes your personalized instruction, accommodations aboard including all food and bev., safety equipment, and course materials. We ask students to board Lintika by 12pm the first day the course begins.

We will be adding exact dates and pricing for this trip soon, apply here today to join the waitlist!

Hear from an alumni who partook in this passage in 2023:

Gino Guidi ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️

"Did the passage from Loreto to Mazatlan with Captain Brady. It was an amazing learning experience. Lintika is a fantastic vessel that handled everything thrown at her and is great boat to learn on. Senor Brady is such a great teacher. He explains things but lets you actually do them. When learning from Cruisers Academy you walk away with practical hands on experience and confidence to take on the next challenge on your own. I have learned at many places but CA is by far the best and most complete experience I have ever had. If you get the opportunity to sail with them, do not pass it up! It is a true cruising experience, not just a sailing experience."

February temps range from a high of 78° and low 54° in the Sea of Cortez, and a high of 80° and low of 62° in Mazatlan.
