The peninsula of Baja California, Mexico, and its Sea of Cortez are a lesson in contrast. Sparse desert landscapes are fringed by spectacular white beaches, peaceful bays and imposing cliffs. The Baja peninsula is one of the most diverse geographical areas of the world and is still very much a frontier, creating ideal options for travelers wanting to avoid the crowds. All of our unique Baja trips and tours get you away from the bustle and bring you up close to wildlife, into authentic cultural towns and onto empty beaches and bird-filled islands.

Play with the sea lions, swim with the whale sharks, watch mom and baby gray whales and hike among the giant cordon cactus forests on a Baja trip with AdventureSmith. Our expert team is here to assist you. Choose scheduled Baja California travel adventures or design your own Baja travel experience with custom itineraries. Discover your perfect way to explore this remarkable region.

Why choose a Baja trip? Travel to Baja is filled with wonders; familiar yet unique. Our Baja trip options include small ship cruising through the relaxed, wildlife-filled Sea of Cortez and/or along the Pacific’s stunning cliffs and whale-filled bays. Baja cruises sail you to small towns, uninhabited islands and remote bays to take you bird watching, hiking, kayaking, paddleboarding, snorkeling, whale watching and more.

Other Baja travel options include incredible land-based trips that are perfect to add on to your cruise or as stand-alone experiences. These land options include glamping on Espiritu Santo, a protected island filled-with wildlife, or active filled-days on a multi-day choose-your-own-adventure trip staying in a boutique hotel in the artsy town of Todos Santos where you will dine well, relax poolside and adventure with naturalist guides.

Mix and match, experience each trip or just embark on one, our Adventure Specialists can help you create your ideal Baja California travel experience via land and/or sea. Days filled with relaxation, white sand and shimmering water lay just ahead.
