Before You Book Anything

Plan on arriving in La Paz by 5:00pm on April 5th. There will be a group dinner that evening where everyone will meet their Captains and get instructions for the next day.

For departures, do not plan on being off of the boats before noon on April 13.

Where We Will Go:

Isla Partida – We’ll explore the dozens of anchorages and small islands along the western side of the island– fish, snorkel, beach comb, hike the canyons, take a million photos!  We’ll all anchor for the night at Caleta Partida, a collapsed volcanic crater with great beachcombing!

Los Islotes – (a remote rock outcropping) makes for a great stop to watch and swim with the resident Sea Lions.  Then we’ll have a nice sail to the cove at Isla San Francisco. Beautiful beach, iconic hike to the ridge where you can photograph our fleet in the bay.  More beautiful water!

Isla San Jose –
 a day stop to see the Cordon Cactus Forrest and explore the mangroves.

Isla Coyote – is another day stop.  It’s a tiny island where fishing folk have lived for hundreds of years.  Sometimes, the ladies have hand made items to sell.

San Evaristo – here’s where we have our group dinner ashore.  We will collect donations for the kids at the school here. Be sure to walk around and over to the other side of town near the salt flats!

One night, we will find a remote beach and have a campfire.  Don’t forget the marshmallows!

There will be many more stops as there are beautiful coves to explore everywhere along the way, and we want you to see and do as much as you want.​

​The city of La Paz is a wonderful town with an amazing Malecon (Boardwalk) along the waterfront.  There are lots of shops and places to eat and whale sharks to swim with (!), so allow yourself some time either before or after our charter to enjoy .

Sponsor About

Source for the best cruising guides to the Sea of Cortez, logbooks, and other sailing tools that make life easier on a boat.
Makers of the famous Mantus Anchor and Mantus anchoring systems. Our very own WWS member, Deneen Taylor, was critical in the design of the anchor with her background as a Structural Engineer. In addition to anchors, they are also the source for the WWS burgees and some other really cool things like waterproof bags and backpacks, compact scuba gear!
Marmara Imports has been a sponsor of these trips since 2016! They have the absolute best quick drying towels that are soft and beautiful. Their towels are 100% turkish cotton and absorb water quickly and in turn, dry quickly.
Good Old Boat has also been a sponsor since the beginning. A great publication for those who love boats with excellent ideas on improving and maintaining a boat whether it is power or sail.
Captain Patsee Ober is also an amazing photographer specializing in images of tide pools and marine images. The colors she captures in each image are amazing! Of course she is one of our favorite sponsors!
Cruising Solutions is the source for some awesome boating gear – all focused to making life aboard all little bit easier. They are the place to go for the best headsets (we use ours for anchoring, docking, sending someone up the mast, and when one person has to work in the engine room and one is in the cockpit), WinchRite, LED lighting, and more. In the past they have supplied us with Savon de Mer, the best soap to use on any water (salt or fresh). And they are sending us some this year!
A new sponsor this year – a fellow Sawdust Festival friend of Patsee Ober has contributed some very cool zippered pouches with nautical codes on them. I know I want one!
Chart MetalWorks donated a beautiful necklace with a chart of the BVI last year. They are doing the same this year for the Sea of Cortez.
A big thank you to Jodi and Bob for once again being one of our sponsors! Cruising Outpost shares tales (and woes) from cruisers all over the globe. And they have included write-ups from our past WWS Rendezvous!
For the ultimate source for canvas, marine upholstery, heavy-duty sewing machines, there is only one place – Sailrite! Great people, great company! And one of our favorite sponsors!
A Rendezvous would not be complete without some help from The Boat Galley. And this year they have a special treat for us! Hint: It’s a book – but maybe not the book you would expect!
