North America Baja California Cruise

Baja: A Remarkable Journey

Enjoy 15 days on this exciting and comprehensive small ship cruise. Baja: A Remarkable Journey offers an excellent opportunity to explore the gray whale lagoons along Baja California’s Pacific Coast, the most pristine beaches in the Pacific and the richness of the vast Sea of Cortez. Travel is aboard the 100-guest National Geographic Venture, with National Geographic photographers and photo instructors on board to share tips and years of expertise. 

Watch for gray whales up close from expedition landing craft, including possible observations of mothers and playful calves. The flexible itinerary enables island hopping across the Sea of Cortez, maximizing opportunities to view and photograph wildlife. Wildlife can be viewed from the ship, guided expedition landing craft, or kayaks, with options for various levels of activity. An optional visit to the historic town center of San Jose del Cabo provides a cultural component to this expeditionary voyage, as well. 

This Baja, California, small ship cruise is a photographer’s paradise: the region’s wild shores and desert islands where awesome wildlife and scenic landscapes meet. Photo leaders from National Geographic take an almost personal pride in introducing guests to Baja’s uninhabited islands, cactus forests, whales and dolphins, astonishing seabird colonies, expansive sand dunes and some of the world’s most memorable sunsets. Benefit from coaching in the field, and back on board, an array of presentations on Baja’s natural history and the creative and technical aspects of capturing its beauty by camera.
