Baja's Whale Bounty

From: $2995
8 days • Level 1 (Details)Baja's Whale Bounty
Explore Baja California on this small ship cruise with a special focus on whale watching. Just south of California lies an inland sea known as the Gulf of California, Sea of Cortez, or Sea of Cortés. A birders' paradise, this rich archipelago serves as an important bird refuge and migration corridor. It is a place author John Steinbeck found “ferocious with life” and once described by Jacques Cousteau as “the aquarium of the world.” As a UNESCO World Heritage Site and biosphere reserve, it is one of the most biologically diverse marine environments on earth.

Come aboard the 84-guest Safari Endeavour and discover a world of breathtaking beauty. Kayak, paddleboard, snorkel and ride a skiff in impossibly brilliant turquoise blue waters. Swim with playful sea lions, watch whales and relax by a bonfire on the beach. Explore wildlife-rich waters and go ashore on islands that are home to both plants and animals found nowhere else in the world. A full day's whale-watching excursion in Magdalena Bay is sure to be a wildlife highlight.

Coastal mangroves and dunes along with desert scrub and red-rock cliffs provide the backdrop on your 7-night island hopping journey. Hike nearby shores, rimmed with white-sand beaches and cactus-clad ridges. Enjoy a desert burro ride and picnic ashore with music and storytelling. To explore this extraordinary place is to know firsthand how small the human presence here truly is. This is a small ship Baja California cruise like no other!

view full itinerary details

Day 1 - Embark San José del Cabo, Baja California

You will be met at the Los Cabos International Airport and transferred to a San José del Cabo hospitality area prior to boarding. The Captain and crew welcome you aboard just in time for a cocktail and dinner with your new mates.
ACCOMMODATIONS:
Safari Endeavour
MEALS:
dinner

Day 2 - Gordo Banks

Kick off your week’s adventure at Gordo Banks, an underwater mountain, aka Sea Mount, located five miles off Baja’s southern tip. Perfect for all kinds of sea life, humpback whales, mobula and Mantas, tuna, dolphins and hammerhead sharks are all known to frequent this important marine habitat.
ACCOMMODATIONS:
Safari Endeavour
MEALS:
breakfast, lunch and dinner

Day 3 - Isla San Francisco

Sailing through islands once pillaged by conquistadors for black pearls, approach a white-sand beach at Isla San Francisco’s aptly named Half Moon Bay. Learn the ropes with a snorkel and kayak orientation from your expedition team, then head out to snorkel along barnacled rocks, kayak amidst hues of blue and take an interpretive walk to the salt chuck or a more strenuous guided hike along a desert rim for spectacular panoramic view. Then there’s the magical possibility of a post-dinner swim in a bay filled with stunning luminescence.
ACCOMMODATIONS:
Safari Endeavour
MEALS:
breakfast, lunch and dinner

Day 4 - Isla Santa Catalina & Bahia Agua Verde

Isla Santa Catalina is ideal for bird watching and seeking endemic wildlife. Here a guided hike takes you among a forest of the world’s tallest cactus, the giant Cardón. At Bahía Agua Verde, clear waters are bordered by sparse, craggy mountains hemmed in green. Explore the coast by small skiff, visit with a local ranchero and his family, and take to the canyons and mountains on a burro ride and experience the “real Baja.” Scenic vistas, outstanding exploration, excellent birding and unmatched camaraderie—the day is done.
ACCOMMODATIONS:
Safari Endeavour
MEALS:
breakfast, lunch and dinner

Day 5 - Magdalena Bay & Marine Mammal Viewing

When the gray whales have arrived near Bahía Magdalena—where they’re known to migrate and calf—dock in Puerto Escondido and head across the peninsula to ride in a panga and observe them in the lagoon. With binoculars in hand, keep your eyes peeled this afternoon for pods of dolphins, blue, fin, sei, orca and sperm whales as they spout and dive in the surrounding waters. Blue-footed boobies, brown pelicans, cormorants and gulls also make this area their home. And weather permitting, a sunset bonfire this evening makes time for music and sharing stories ashore.
ACCOMMODATIONS:
Safari Endeavour
MEALS:
breakfast, lunch and dinner

Day 6 - Isla Carmen

Enjoy a lingering brunch then it’s off to enjoy the desert sea. Drop anchor in a hidden cove straight out of a movie set and paddle for shore. There are plenty of options today: kayaking, paddl boarding, snorkeling and beachcombing, or a guided hike into an inland sandy valley, perfect for identifying animal tracks. Explore nature’s diversity and learn about the geologic forces that formed the islands.
ACCOMMODATIONS:
Safari Endeavour
MEALS:
breakfast, lunch and dinner

Day 7 - Los Islotes & Ensenada Grande

At Los Islotes—a steep rocky outcropping leaping straight from the sea—observe a sea lion colony from the boat and skiff, or slip into a wetsuit for a pre-breakfast snorkel with agile young sea lions. Swim through a rock arch where orange fan and white fire coral sway in the current. High overhead, sea birds perch on the cliffs. Then heave anchor and set sail for Ensenada Grande for your last day of water play. After tonight’s special Farewell Dinner, your Expedition Leader recaps the journey with a slideshow.
ACCOMMODATIONS:
Safari Endeavour
MEALS:
breakfast, lunch and dinner

Day 8 - Disembark San José del Cabo, Baja California

After breakfast onboard, a transfer to the Los Cabos airport is provided.

Trip Reviews

OVERALL: 5 stars ACCOMMODATIONS: 3 stars MEALS: 4 stars

Overall Trip Review

We had fantastic views of humpback and blue whales from the boat. The trip to Magdalena Bay was phenomenal - so close to grey whales and their calves.

Accommodations Review

There was a major problem on the boat with a sewage storage tank and the smell at times was unbearable. Everything was excellent - but given my previous comment I can't score an overall excellent.

Meals Review

The starters were always a bit sparse.

Crew & Guides Review

All the guides were very knowledgeable and enthusiastic. A minor criticism is that they were a little too 'safe' eg insisting on groups staying together when snorkelling in a very sheltered bay.

AdventureSmith Explorations Review

Excellent communication at every stage.

Traveler Advice

Take a decent telephoto lens.
