Make way to the Sea of Cortez on this nautical adventure. Explore isolated bays, volcanic islands, craggy sea mounts, and historic towns while sailing through waters teeming with marine life. Don your snorkel and fins to swim with whale sharks and sea lion pups and observe gray whales as they enter the sea to calve. Visit with a local family and travel briefly overland on a burro for spectacular panoramic views of the sea and surrounding countryside. Every port is filled with exciting opportunities for recreation and leisure so that you can soak up the Baja sun on a white sand beach, or paddle board on the topaz water as you watch the marine life frolic below.
