the shark comments are a bit overwruaght, but... - nice wave but this place is physically brutal (wind/sun/extreme temps and an insidious kind of superfine "moondust") and will take it out of you whether you come by plane or car. I don't know about peeps being airlifted after shark bites (like the Mexican coast guard would waste its $$ on some pinche gringo surfer!), but I have seen some heavy military activity out there. Saw a navy helicopter land in bahia tortugas and hand some dudes off to the federales while I was having lunch. I had a destroyer shine its spotlight on my camp out by punta eugenia after midnight. so not a place for folks looking to chill. Done right this is an expensive and long trip that requires serious preparation. a very fickle region in general surf-wise. even offshore spots are too exposed if wind is above 25 kts, which is pretty much every afternoon. Little protection to speak of.

fly, don't drive - The safest, fastest, easiest way to Natividad is to fly...4 hours total time to the island from San Diego, and land just steps to the Doors!
