Baja - 570 nautical miles (656 Miles / 1056 Kilometers)

These distances are GPS data, they do not take in consideration the drifting, ferry angles and times we paddled slightly off course. We often crossed from island to island or large bays. The coastal distance would be much higher than the distance we covered.


The non-kayaking days are used to rest, share experiences with local people, write articles and prepare the next updates of our website.

1 km = 0.62 statute miles   /   1 statute mile = 1.61 kilometers

1 Nautical Mile = 1.85 km   /    1km = 0.54 Nautical Miles

1 Nautical Mile = 1.15 miles (statute)   /    1 mile (statute) = 0.87 N. Miles
