The Sea of Cortez is a rarified pocket of extraordinary wildness and wonder, and a holiday adventure perfect for families. Jacques Cousteau called it “the world’s aquarium” for its richness. John Steinbeck fell under its enchantment, and extolled it in The Log from The Sea of Cortez. It is where the windswept dunes and the blooms of the desert meet the sea. And it’s among the best places in the world to see marine mammals—a literal “living sea.”
The eight day “Holiday Journeys in the Sea of Cortez” voyage on the 62-guest National Geographic Sea Bird will depart from La Paz, Mexico on December 21st with an itinerary that has something for everyone’s holiday checklist:
