Baja California & the Sea of Cortez


Seeing California gray whales in their natural habitat is one of the great delights of this voyage. Join experienced naturalist David Aguilar and other experts aboard expedition landing craft to often come within arm’s length of these magnificent creatures. On the other side of the peninsula, explore the desert islands of the pristine Sea of Cortez, search for whales and dolphins, bluefooted boobies, pelicans, cormorants, and magnificent frigate birds. Snorkel among sea lions; hike amid barrel cacti and sculpted sand dunes, and kayak and paddleboard in protected coves. And at the end of the day, relax at a beach barbecue and bask in the splendid solitude of Baja. Presented by Harvard Museums of Science & Culture.
