On this “best of” journey we’ll bring you to both spectacular coasts of Baja including the beautiful Espiritu Santo Island in the Sea of Cortez and remote, wild shores of Magdalena Bay on the Pacific Coast.
While camping in luxury on a white sand beach at our base camp on Espiritu Santo Island, you’ll have the opportunity to snorkel with whale sharks (weather permitting), sea lions and tropical fish and sea kayak below the island’s stunning volcanic cliffs. As a bonus on late February and early March trips it’s quite possible to enjoy humpback whale sightings as they frequent the waters surrounding Espiritu Santo Island.
In Magdalena Bay you’ll observe gray whales up close from locally operated skiffs as they frolic in the bay or from right in front of our luxury base camp over looking the bay. Other opportunities for exploring this unique area include paddling through mangrove estuaries among the rich bird life and hiking the dunes and coastline of this remote Pacific Barrier Island.
We’ve put this trip together especially for the active, outdoor naturalist type who likes to paddle and snorkel but also would enjoy doing some whale watching all within a 9-day trip. This will truly be a one of a kind, comprehensive Baja journey!

PLEASE NOTE: This trip itinerary varies depending on the trip date your choose. While all the activities, times and schedules remain the same the order of which camp you will attend first and second may vary. Some dates visit our ESI camp first and end with our whale camp while others start at our whale camp and end at our ESI camp. If you wish to know the order of which camp you’ll attend first and second contact our office.
Although we do our best to adhere to the above itinerary, it is subject to change for reasons beyond our control including wildlife unpredictability, weather and port closures. Upon the chance the port is closed and we can not get a group to the island on departure day we will provide a land based activity for this day. Snorkeling with whale sharks is completely weather dependent (calm seas are necessary) and wildlife predictability so this activity will depend on the weather and presence of sharks on the days and time we have scheduled to do this.
