Full Itinerary

March 12-19, 2023

Explore Mexico’s Baja California Peninsula, surrounded by bountiful waters harboring a charismatic array of marine mammals, including migrating blue, gray, fin, humpback and pilot whales. This journey features three unforgettable stops. The first is Loreto Bay National Park, a chain of islands where thriving seagrass beds attract five species of sea turtles. Next, to Magdalena Bay, where northern and southern currents merge, creating nutrient-rich waters ready to welcome gray whales seeking a suitable haven to bear their young after one of the longest migrations known to exist among mammals. The trip concludes with a rare opportunity to experience Isla Espíritu Santo, part of a UNESCO World Heritage site and Biosphere Reserve.


  • Snorkel alongside whale sharks in La Paz Bay.
  • Sleep under the stars at the Espiritu Santo Archipelago National Park.
  • Hike, swim and snorkel around Coronado Island, known for its beautiful white-sand beaches.
  • Visit the more than 260-year-old San Javier Mission, one of the best preserved missions in Baja.
