For the wildlife enthusiast who is prepared to rough it a little the Baja in-depth voyage aboard the Searcher offers a no frills option that consistently exceeds expectations. For travellers looking for a little more comfort the Baja California Whale Watching Cruise offers a one week highlights voyage. The 15 day Extended Whale Watching Cruise offers the highlights along with a chance to explore deep into the Sea of Cortez and the rarely visited Midriff Islands. These later two voyages aboard the National Geographic Sealion have a very strong photographic team along with top class expedition leaders. If you are looking for a more relaxed option with a wide variety of activities along with the wildlife, then the one week Luxury Sea of Cortez cruise aboard the Safari Endeavour is the one for you. For passengers who are not so keen on sailing we also offer a land based option with short trips into the bay to see the Grey whales and their calves.
The best months for whale watching in Baja, particularly for the Grey whales, is January to April with frequent departures available throughout this season. For more information please call Sue on 01285 880981 who is our Baja California specialist.
