Off the GRID Expeditions, best know for their extreme multi day - multi mile UTV tours, has grown into one of the most critically acclaimed tour operators in Baja. Perhaps best known for their off the beaten path- aka (off the grid)- fast passed adventures and luxurious destinations, you simply just can’t find this in a tour book. This company is as real as it gets!
First class tier one tour operators guide you every mile while certified mechanics and paramedics bring up the tail end of the pack. Fully outfitted Ford Chase trucks are in constant communication with MSAT satellite radios and are completely stocked with parts, tools, trailers and ice cold beverages. The crew call themselves the Baja Pirates, but don’t be fooled -these are true professionals and their passion for operating the premier off road tour business in Baja really shows.
The average tour is 3 to 4 days and over 600 miles. Some 8 day tours go beyond the 1700 mile range. The terrain changes day to day or even hour to hour as you wind your way back and forth down the Baja peninsula. Even with the adrenaline pumping, off-road driving, we still plan time to stop and enjoy the remote hidden treasures of what only years of exploring Baja shows. Crossing the peninsula from the Pacific Ocean to the Sea of Cortez almost a dozen times, we really get to experience this truly majestic land and the people. It’s no surprise this company is loved by the locals. If you are the off road adventurous type and are looking for a trip that will leave you with stories for 10 life times then this is it. The adventure white knuckle driving, the camaraderie, the destinations and the crew aka Baja Pirates that will truly let you “explore beyond your limits” is what makes this the ultimate Off Road adventure package.
