Beginning January 2015, Un-Cruise Adventures will offer a new adventure cruise in Mexico’s Sea of Cortés with abundant marine life adventures wrapped into one itinerary.
The 84-guest Safari Endeavour sails the weeklong Baja’s Bounty! Whale Sharks, Whales & Mobulas itinerary roundtrip from San José del Cabo, Baja, Mexico. From November-March, Safari Endeavour explores the marine-rich waters of the sea and scenic, remote desert islands on weeklong adventures from San José del Cabo, Baja. The Sea of Cortés is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and Biosphere Reserve, once described by Jacques Cousteau as the “world’s aquarium.” The new itinerary combines active explorations with seasonal sea life encounters. When gray whales arrive to calve in Bahía Magdalena, an overland tour to board panga boats and see whales and calves up close is included. At other times of the year, a snorkeling excursion in Bahía de La Paz may bring guests up close to the largest known fish in the sea- the gentle whale sharks. Exploration cruising allows for a flexible itinerary with time to seek out wildlife. Other areas visited include Isla San Francisco, Isla San José, Bahía Agua Verde, Isla Coronados, Los Islotes, Ensenada Grande and Isla Cerralvo. A half-day port call in Loreto includes a guided walking tour of the historic town. For more information, go to un-cruise.com.
