sea-of-cortes Explore the sunny Sea of Cortes this winter on an 8-day National Geographic Expedition.

 

Begin with a flight south from LA to La Paz on the Baja Peninsula.  From La Paz, either the MV Sea Lion or MV Sea Bird will cruise along the shore, exploring the extraordinary wildlife and beauty of Islas Los Islotes, Espíritu Santo, Gorda Banks and through the Bahía Magdalena inlets – right in time to welcome the whales migrating down from Alaska. Thrill to the Zodiac maneuvers. Hike in the wild desert. Kayak among the barking, splashing sea lions.  Swim, sun, snorkel, listen and learn. 

Naturalists and marine specialists accompany all 9 expeditions offered from January through March, 2008  – but on the first departure, January 26th, the highly esteemed marine biologist Sylvia Earle, Explorer-in-Residence of the National Geographic Society, will accompany. Traveling with her, named one of Time magazine’s “Heroes for the Planet,” would be an honor … and a thrill.
