Having participated in many tours, I must promote Captain Baja Adventure Tours as the best! I enjoy tours that showcase the local view of the location..the hidden beaches, the unique archeological/historic features and of course the best tacos!!! The KTM bikes were extremely well prepped when I arrived (thank's Captain), handled great and hauled ass! Our long rides were superb and well organized. I can't wait to bring the posse and do another trip with Captain Baja Adventure Tours. Muchos Gracias

Having rode KTM and Husaberg bikes for many years, I prefer to ride orange! So when checking out riding in the Baja, Chris Haines and Baja Bound only ride red. I discovered Captain Baja and his bitchen' KTM 450sx bikes were setup and ready to roll. Headed to Cabo and less than an hour later, I'm sittin' in paradise sipping a cold one! Meeting up with the Captain & Jae was easy, organized and ready to rip. Next morning we tore it up! Baja Sur had gotten some rain...it was tropical and lush with cactus! Moisture in the dirt, all I can say is EPIC! 7 days, so many miles, views, beaches, the locals and the grub...I'm planning my next trip back. Thanks for the awesome adventure!
Wanted to tell you how much I loved the ride! Having spent 10 years of vacations in Baja, I thought I knew the area well. I got to see places I didn't even imagine. I really appreciate your patience with me as a complete novice on the dirt and your willingness to push me outside of my comfort zone. I can't wait to come back and ride with you guys again!
As an avid off-road rider from South Africa, I was very fortunate to spend a few days in Baja with Captain Baja traversing the spectacularly arid region. Kirk & Jae run an awesome business and for those of you who are looking for a "trail ride with a difference", you will not be disappointed in arranging this via Captain Baja. From the very moment we arrived at the Cabo airport and were greeted with a warm welcome by Kirk and his partner Jae, our every need and expection was duly filled. Kirk runs a number of KTM bikes (450's) that are very well maintained and equipped to ensure both the professional and novice rider alike having modern and safe equipment to enjoy their ride - whether it be fast or technical. Kirk has spent many months traversing the Baja to ensure that rides can be undertaken with various skill levels in mind. From smooth flowing sandy tracks to more technical "moonscape" and rocky rides, every rider will enjoy the outride. Kirk has also formed great relationships with the local communities, where he will also be able to share the history, culture and areas of interest to riders. Kirk has also become a bit of a cult figure with the locals, where their knowledge of the Baja 1000 and Kirks association thereto, has heralded him a local hero! I simply have to return to ride with Kirk again, as we only managed to see a fraction of the riding terrain during our stay there. Captain Baja is not just an off-road adventure, but rather a life experience that leaves an indelible memory with you forever!

Since leaving Captain Baja, I've replayed the trip in my head countless of times, and will probably do so until my next trip back.
Day 1 kicked off with a great mornings ride along the coastal ridge line of some fast and smooth flowing local roads, allowing us to get adjusted to the powerful KTM 450's before stopping to cool off on a private beach. After catching some rays on the beach, it was time to gear up again and head out once more and continue along the ridge line before stopping for lunch at a local taco bar. The end to a perfect first day!
Day 2 saw a little slower of a start due to some aching body's from the previous days riding. But none the less, Captain Baja had the KTM's all prepped and ready for another day on the trails. This time it was out into the washes and some slightly more technical riding, that kept you on your toes all 60 miles long, pushing hard over the challenging local terrain before coming home along the beaches. This days ride is definitely a ride that I will always remember.
Day 3 was a day to allow the battered and bruised body's to heal as we headed out onto the waters of the Sea of Cortez to try to catch ourselves some fresh seafood for our BBQ on the beach. Unfortunately we picked a bad day for the fish to bite, but the experience we had swimming with the hundreds of dophins and a friendly passing whale was unforgettable.
Day 4 saw us gear up for our last ride in Baja and once again Kirk kept us surprised and on our toes with this knowledge of the endless amount of trails Baja Sur had to offer. Before we knew it, our 4 night stay at Captain Baja was over and we were back on the plane heading home. All I can say is thank you to Kirk & Jae for allowing us into your slice of paradise and your friendly and welcoming hospitality. I'm already searching the calendar, planning my next trip back an I can't wait to share my stories with friends and family back home.
Thank's again for the lifetime experience I'll never forget Captain Baja!
