The Expedition Experience

Whale Watching - Birding - Hiking - Snorkeling

What to Expect / What You'll Do

Our expedition headquarters will be the 92-foot long / 28 passenger M.V. Shogun. As we travel south on the California Current the boat becomes the perfect platform for exploration. The hallmark of this expedition is flexibility and choice of activities. You’ll have plenty of choices to experience Baja California up-close.

At Sea

 

On the boat, you may want to read a book while enjoying an amazing view of the Baja coast, enjoy a snack or coffee while peeking out the window in the dinning room or join naturalists to scan the horizon in search of wildlife. There are quiet moments on board, but it’s never long before we spot whales, dolphins, seabirds, seaturtles and other wildlife. Our 92-foot boat allows us to react immediately to wildlife sightings and follow the action! Moreover, with only 24 passengers aboard (on a 28-passenger boat), there is plenty of legroom and space to move around and observe wildlife up-close.

On Land / Island Hopping

 

Exploring Baja and the Sea of Cortez's secluded islands is one of the highlights of this expedition. On each stop there is the option for a hike, a stroll along the shore, going on a skiff ride or just hanging out at the beach. Several places are also perfect to go for a swim and  snorkeling. You don’t have to chose only one activity. You can do more than one and all of them if you like.

Daily Rhythm

 

During the trip you’ll quickly get your sea legs and enjoy what I call the "daily rhythm". Each day we begin with fresh coffee, tea, morning treats and a hearty breakfast. After breakfast, we start the day’s activities depending on what is going on around us- often, whales, dolphins and seabirds arrive before or during breakfast. We plan the first round of activities to end just before lunch, often served in buffet style and with many choices to satisfy each taste. After lunch and some down time (unless the whales and other wildlife come back too soon), we set out for our second round of activities either on land or around the boat. 

The day ends with a luscious dinner, a recap of the day’s sightings and a preview for the next day’s activities. Lectures are scheduled at the end of the day throughout the expedition to highlight specific topics such as marine mammals, cacti and seabirds.
