We are in currantly in La Paz
, having made the trip from Seattle
. For what it's worth: -San Diego to Ensenada (65 miles) - protected, small anchorage, several marinas
-Ensenada to Bahia
Tortuga (295 miles) - protected, huge anchorage, fuel
(must use a Baja
-Bahia Tortuga to Bahia
Asuncion (55 miles) - open to SW/otherwise protected, large anchorage
Bahia Asuncion to Bahia Santa Maria (185 miles) - open to SW/otherwise protected, large anchorage, mind the surf if trying land the dingy
Bahia Santa Maria to Cabo San Lucas (180 miles) or San Jose del Cabo is another 18 miles - with any kind of northerly, there can be nasty chop on the SE corner of Baja
In February, I would be confident about the weather
window before departing each leg. Between Ensenada and Bahia Tortuga, there isn't much in the way of placed to stop. South of there, a number places exist to drop the hook; some with protection, others are more roadstead type stops.
Have fun and enjoy marine
life (we did, except for hitting a whale at 4AM approaching Cabo).
