Kayaking in British Columbia

Not Your Typical Detox Retreat: 9 Trips that Make You Unplug

Mashable | July, 2016

"ROW Adventures capitalizes on getaways that present an extreme break from the digital world. Of their trips, the British Columbia and American Northwest tours get you completely unplugged. Travelers to British Columbia immerse in the quiet calm of remote lodges and occupy their hands and bodies with sea-kayaking expeditions. Travelers to the American Northwest raft through rivers and deep valleys in Idaho and Oregon. Founder Peter Grubb finds these trips increasingly important for families: 'Getting to a place where being connected isn't an option allows us to reset our own priority button. It's a time to reconnect with family and disconnect from the false urgency of our everyday world.'"

Idaho-based tour operator, ROW Adventures, one of the first companies authorized to offer kayak tours in Cuba, operated 18 kayaking trips last season.

Myths About Galapagos Islands Travel

Five Myths About the Galapagos Islands

USA Today | March, 2016

"The Galapagos Islands, which lie in the Pacific Ocean off the coast of Ecuador, have some of the most unique wildlife in the world, from giant tortoises to vast colonies of seabirds. Visited by Charles Darwin in 1835, the extraordinary animals were the basis for his Theory of Natural Selection. The wildlife is real, but the logistics and cost of traveling around these remote islands are perhaps the last remaining myths about the Galapagos Islands."

Gray whale at Magdalena Bay Whale Camp in Baja

Whale Magic in Magdalena Bay

What a Trip | March, 2016

"The full-throttled leap of a female Pacific gray whale was heard before it was seen from our small panga bobbing in the lagoon. Her giant splash reverberated through the shallow waters of Magdalena Bay like a meteor exploding into Earth. We are close enough to the hulking mammal to see the barnacles on her back and feel the spray from her blow hole. Her month old baby floats beside her. Our three day whale watching adventure is just beginning and yet, it has already exceeded my expectations!"
