We are leaving out of San Francisco in Jan 29th, to Catalina, Mexican Riviera and San Diego. We have only traveled the Carribean and needed a light jacket at the most. How do we need to pack for this one? How cold is it going to be? How doggone cold is the Pacific water once you get into Mexico? Is it too cold to swim probably? Will it be warm enough on deck to swim? THanks.
Expect cool sailing until you are midway down the Baja peninsula and getting close to Cabo. After that it is smooth and warm at the various Mexican Riviera ports. Ocean swimming is a little cool north of Mazatlan.
Take a sweatshirt and light jacket for those days when you are north of Cabo.
