Baja: Where the Desert Meets the Sea 8 days
Come explore Baja California with us this spring. With over 25 years of experience in this region, we’ll show you the best that Baja has to offer and take advantage of the consistently calm waters — ideal for swimming and snorkeling. In April, air temperatures are warm but not too hot and the occasional spring rains bring forth colorful cactus blossoms.
Whale and dolphin watch from the deck of our intimate, 62-guest expedition ship National Geographic Sea Bird and at water level from nimble Zodiacs. Best bets are fin, sperm and Bryde’s, but other possibilities include the great blue whale. Hike miles of uninhabited beaches and desert. Observe myriad seabirds. Kayak in pristine waters, snorkel among reef fish and enjoy the serenity of a sunset beach barbecue. This unique journey is designed with no set itinerary, adding a stimulating sense of adventure to each day.

Blue-footed boobies, red-billed tropicbirds, pelicans and frigatebirds are all found here.
