Ensenada Grande, Isla Partida

Jan 04, 2019 - National Geographic Venture


On our first day, we left the dock at La Paz and spent the morning sailing through the Sea of Cortez. We arrived at Ensenada Grande in Espiritu Santo National Park, and spent the day doing a number of activities. Our guest ventured into the rocky arroyo on nature and photo walks to discover this vivid desert landscape and the flora and fauna that call it home. Other guests took to the water to snorkel and discover the beauty that lays beneath the crystal blue seas, while others kayaked and stand-up paddleboarded above. We ended the day with a chill yoga session with our Exhale yoga teacher, Jaclyn Allen. What an incredible way to start our trip here in Baja. We headed back aboard National Geographic Venture at sunset for cocktail hour and dinner. Now, with a sense of what Baja has to offer, our guests are excited to see what tomorrow brings.
