Our Destinations

San Ignacio Lagoon Gray Whales

Season: January to April // 4 Days, 3 Nights

This is the most amazing and spectacular whale interaction on the planet, combining glamping or luxury accommodation and a private flight in from Cabo San Lucas directly to the Lagoon.

Phenomenal, extraordinary, mind-shattering… How do you even begin to describe the experience of a giant 40-foot-long whale swimming right up to your boat, looking you in the eye, and communicating very clearly that they want you to put your hand in the water so that they can push up against it to get stroked. And… It’s not just the adults, the calves are unbelievably cute and playful and will steal your heart.

San Ignacio Lagoon Gray Whales
Extended Stay

Season: Mid-January to Mid-April // 7 Days, 6 Nights

What is the only thing better than our phenomenal 4-day, 3-night San Ignacio Adventures?? Staying Longer!! We offer a limited number of trips that are 3 days longer, allowing you more time to soak in the magic and beauty of this desert and ocean oasis. More time equals the opportunity for more whale encounters, visiting the serene brilliant white Salinas salt flats, exploring the village of San Ignacio, or even embarking on a mountain hike to discover cave paintings.

Luxury Overlanding

Season: October to May // Bespoke trip lengths

With 50 years of overlanding experience up and down Baja, we have completely reworked this program to provide luxury adventuring. Imagine camping in the sand dunes on the edge of the Pacific, climbing high into the Sierras to explore hidden springs and beautiful valleys, discovering cave paintings, abandoned missions, and relaxing on beautiful Sea of Cortez beaches. Our new program includes self-drive Tacoma TRD Pros, fully guided and a mobile base camp for showers, cold drinks, appetizers, and fine dining every night.

Baja Ultimate Whales
Gray Whale Lagoon + Expedition Yacht

Season: January – March // 8 Days, 7 Nights

Truly an ultimate adventure with not just a 4-day, 3-night San Ignacio Lagoon gray whale expedition but also humpback whale watching on the southern cape, snorkelling with loads of sea lions, and 3 nights on our 116 ft expedition yacht. Experience encounters with blue whale mommas and calves, witness huge pods of dolphins, giant fin whales, and more humpback whales than you can shake a stick at. As well as shore adventures, cocktail hour on the beach and of course, scuba diving opportunities. 

Mexico Sardine Run

Season: Mid-October to January // 8 Days, 7 Nights

Imagine being in the water with giant swirling schools of Pacific sardine in the cobalt blue waters off Magdalena Bay. You’ll be surrounded by everything from giant bryde whales right in front of you gulping their way through thousands of sardine, to striped marlin flashing by at 50 km/h, California sea lions, sharks, dolphins, wahoo, pelagic seabirds, and much more. These adventures combine Cabo departures with your luxury liveaboard always being close by the action and the expertise of local panga captains (ex-fishermen who know the area like the back of their hands). \

Ultimate Whale Shark
Sea of Cortez

Season: June to October // 8 Days, 7 Nights

Every year, between 80 and 220 whale sharks visit a remote bay in the northern sea of Cortez giving us the most splendid interaction found anywhere in the world. With virtually no other boats around, we get these giants all to ourselves for as long as we want. It is a very unique opportunity to experience interaction with these animals own their terms guided by local panga captains. This adventure truly samples the best of the Sea of Cortez from La Paz to Loreto National Park to the extremely remote Isla San Pedro Martir where we have a unique permit to go ashore.

Eco-Experience Camp
Isla Espiritu Santo

Season: October to May // 2 Night min, stay as long as you want

We dreamed of saving the island of Espiritu Santo from commercial exploitation, and instead, raising enough funding to donate the island as a national park and UNESCO world heritage site. Our company founder, Tim Means, made this dream a reality and today, we all benefit from his vision with “zero footprint” beach camps on this beautiful island. Travel out to the island in great comfort on one of our 48- to 55-footers, complete with champagne and lunch, as we get you all set up for a super relaxing time and all the activities you want.

Mobula Rays & Orcas
Sea of Cortez

Season: Mid-March to Mid-July – varying length trips

Joyful, jumping flying mobula Rays are resident year-round in the Sea of Cortez but start aggregating in large numbers late every winter. Getting in the water with hundreds or thousands of these gentle 4 to 5 ft rays is a very special experience, and spring to mid-July is the best time to see them. The Sea of Cortez is brimming with life this time of year; super-friendly California sea lions, huge pods of dolphins, fin whales (second in size only to giant blue whales), giant schools of fish swirling like tornadoes, and much more. Early in the season, there are blue whales and loads of humpback whales, and later we often see whale sharks. BUT our overriding ambition on these trips is to be present when mighty orcas (killer whales) appear. We will be searching hard for them.

Luxury Liveaboard Kayaking

Season: October to May // 8 Days, 7 Nights

Explore the most beautiful islands in the Sea of Cortez including Loreto and Espiritu Santo. Paddling, relaxing and adventuring during the day and then effortlessly travelling and covering miles in the evening or early morning in comfort and luxury aboard our expedition yacht or one of our small ships. Loreto National Park, Espiritu Santo UNESCO World Heritage Site and much more. Paddle, relax or adventure during the day. And then effortlessly travel between these gorgeous islands.
