A short escape aimed at active travelers in search of a health and wellness experience

Similar to Tulum for yoga and other retreats on Mexico’s Caribbean side, we are looking to offer a new experience in Baja California travel & the Sea of Cortez that positions the region as a mecca for active getaways.  Late December to early January is a popular time for Cabo resorts; the program’s all-included nature should resonate when travelers compare it to hotel stays that do not include activities. 


  • DAY 1: San José Del Cabo / La Paz / Embark

    Upon arrival to Los Cabos airport, transfer to La Paz, where you’ll embark National Geographic Venture this afternoon. Set sail on arrival, for a sunset cruise of Bahía La Paz en route to Isla Espíritu Santo. (D)

  • DAY 2: San José Channel / Isla San Francisco

    Witness a spectacular Baja sunrise this morning while searching for marine mammals in the upper San José Channel. Hear naturalist talks and learn photography basics during an early morning at sea. Before lunch, go ashore at Isla San Francisco, where a sweeping arc of white sand beach beckons you to try yoga or qi gong with your exhale wellness specialist. Explore nearby tide pools with your naturalists, or spend the afternoon stand-up paddleboarding, snorkeling and kayaking. Hike to the nearby ridge for unparalleled views just before sunset. (B,L,D)

  • DAY 3-4: Isla Espíritu Santo, Isla Partida & Los Islotes

    Wake up anchored in one of Isla Espíritu Santo’s beautiful bays and watch the cliffs light up as your exhale wellness specialist leads a morning yoga or qi gong class, on deck, or on shore. For two full days, explore as much or as little as you like, with the ship as your mobile base camp–taking advantage of every exhale wellness option, including hiking with your exhale instructor for mindfulness and stretching on the trail. Explore the dramatically eroded shoreline of Isla Partida on a one-way kayak journey or join a challenging hike up a rocky arroyo to the crest of the island. Meander a different arroyo with your naturalists to learn about the geology and natural history, then learn to paddleboard, or hone skills you already possess. Snorkel with playful and curious sea lions or photograph their antics from expedition landing craft. Wind down with an on-deck Chill Yoga or a chair massage, then go ashore for a beach barbecue dinner followed by a bonfire under the stars. However you choose to spend these days, you’ll be rewarded with a sense of well-being that comes only from spending quality time in nature. (B,L,D)

  • DAY 5: La Paz / Disembark / San José Del Cabo

    Disembark in downtown La Paz this morning and transfer to Los Cabos airport for flights home. (B)
