This is a very quiet paddle but where we cover a greater distance. We leave early in the morning from Santo Domingo towards the reserved area of ​​Paracas Bay and continue along the coastline accompanied by beautiful geological formations and the coastal Apus to the quiet beach “Atenas”. There we will share a beautiful moment of tranquility and a delicious picnic away from civilization. During this paddling we will be able to appreciate curious greebes (birds difficult to appreciate from another means of transport), flamingos, and different migratory birds. Hopefully we can even come across curious bottlenose dolphins.

Why is this experience RESPONSible?

This is one of the most emblematic and biodiverse reserved bays on the Peruvian coast, threatened by different pressures and deserving further protection enforcement, so we believe that making low impact use of this area is important to let the authorities know that other ways of development are possible. This place is of great importance for hundreds of species of birds, between residents and migrants, and for families of bottlenose dolphins that use the bay to hunt small fish. Full of ancient history and beautiful landscapes.

This experience tries to be as sustainable as possible. By moving only using our own energy, we do not generate a greater impact on the environment. We do not produce annoying sounds or release toxic gases into the atmosphere. The kayaks allow us easy and quick access to the sea, and many times we find marine litter adrift, these boats are of great help to remove said trash from the sea or beaches. We believe that through sea kayaking we sensitize ourselves and we sensitize others. Each paddle is a learning experience, each day in nature teaches us unique things, and that by knowing them we therefore protect them.

Eduardo Larrañaga

Eduardo was born in Lima, and from a very young age he had a close bond with the sea. Little by little he acquired various experiences, thanks to surfing and windsurfing, windsurfing being a sport that allowed him to know unique places on the Peruvian coast, in addition to having been a source of work, since he dedicated himself to the instruction of this sport for many years. At 19 years of age, he fulfilled one of his dreams, embarking on a sailboat in Paracas Bay to make his first voyage to Easter Island. Years later he made a second sailing trip from Brazil to South Africa, passing through places full of wildlife such as Tristan da Cunha. Surely that contact with the sea and nature was what led him to study biology. He had the opportunity to research humpback whales in northern Peru, work for the Galapagos National Park and in Tierra del Fuego. 12 years ago he started kayaking and for 6 years he has been working as a sea kayak guide in the Arctic and Antarctica, a job he enjoys very much, since it combines his passion for nature and sport.

The combination of sport and nature is precisely what motivates him to create “Sea Kayak Paracas” and guide in Peru so that more people have the opportunity to enjoy and protect the Peruvian sea using an ancestral tool such as the sea kayak.

Eduardo is also certified as a Wilderness First Responder (WFR) and is an ACA (American Canoe Association) level 3 kayak instructor.

Eduardo, as Respons, is aware that the better our practices, the less negative impact will be generated on the environment. We try to minimize the use of non-recyclable materials in our operations and in the case of recyclable leftovers we make sure that they reach the correct place of processing. We promote this kind of practices because we believe that people’s health is very important to enjoying life and that is why we use healthy and organic products as much as possible. We consider that with sea kayaking we promote sustainable tourism because it is practically non-invasive and in this way we maintain our respect for wildlife. Finally, because we use this activity to teach our clients the ecology and problems of the place, since we consider this type of information very valuable to generate small changes that lead us towards sustainability.
