The region is also among the best in the world for marine mammals. The surface of the Sea of Cortez literally erupts with dizzying numbers of leaping dolphins, diving seabirds, and a variety of whale species. On the Pacific side of the peninsula, you’ll have the rare privilege of entering the California gray whale birthing lagoons aboard expedition landing craft in search of up-close encounters.

Immerse yourself in the splendid solitude of Baja California and the alluring desert wildness of its pristine islands, a UNESCO World Heritage site. Spend an afternoon snorkeling with sea lions or kayaking in a protected cove. Go ashore on desert islands for naturalist-guided walks among huge cardon cacti and sand dunes. You’ll return home revived in mind and spirit.
