GoCruise – 11th December 2019


Cruising is not only an amazingly relaxing way to travel around the world, but it also offers some incredible views all along the way. Sometimes getting to the best spots doesn’t require strenuous hikes or slow-paced tours, but instead a tranquil kayaking trip through your surroundings. Kayaking has not only become an exciting mode of transport, but is also perfect for adventuring around destinations at your own pace, even if you have never done it before.

With so many cruise lines offering kayaking tours across their itineraries, here are some of the best places you can kayak around the world.

In the azure waters of the Baja California, kayaking is a must. Home to some of the most biodiverse aquatic life in the world, including sea lions, mobula rays, blue whales and fin whales, there is no wonder that so many kayak enthusiasts come here every year. Apart from the amazing wildlife, there are several desert islands, volcanic escarpments and, of course, the mainland to enjoy.
