What you'll do

Presa de la Boca is one of the most important reservoirs that provide water to Monterrey City and it has a beautiful sight of the Sierra Madre Oriental. In this tour you will be able to explore it from a unique perspective from a kayak.

Our experience will begin at our facilities in Fishing Depot, there you will meet me and my partners and we will give you a brief instruction on how to use the kayak and some basic safety rules

After the instruction, we will start paddling near the shore and once you have learned the technique and you feel comfortable we'll continue till we reach the dam. Once there we will take a short recess and I will tell you a little about the story of the dam. I will take some pictures and if you want, during that time you can eat a snack or hydrate. Then we will paddle back to the starting point to finish the tour.

We might see birds, turtles and fish during the tour and if we get lucky we might even see the spectacle of thousands of bats coming out from Agapito's Cave to eat at night.

Speed and length of the tour can change depending on the group necessities or climate conditions, we can stop as many times as needed.

The goal of the tour is to relax and enjoy nature while learning some of the local history.

I'm passionate for the outdoors. I enjoy meeting new people and promote sustainable ecotourism. I share this passion with my brother Adan Sanchez and my friend Christian Cole, that's why we founded Fishing Depot, an ideal place for kayakers where we sell, rent, repair and storage kayaks. In our facilities we also have a fishing tackle store and we have a recreational area were our visitors can enjoy the sight of the lake. We have 3 years of experience participating and winning on the most important Bass Fishing Tournaments from kayak in Mexico and we always practice catch and release.

El tour en kayak con Guillermo es una excelente oportunidad de experimentar la presa de la boca de una manera diferente( aún como local) . Nos sentimos súper seguros en todo momento. Es una opción ideal para pasar un rato agradable en la naturaleza, respetando las instrucciones para aplicar distanciamiento social. Sin duda yo y mi familia lo volveríamos a tomar.
