From Southern California to Baja: Sailing the Pacific Coast

Enter a time machine: see the SoCal coast as it is and as it was while making time-warping discoveries. Depart Los Angeles’s bustling port for the nearby Channel Islands to witness intact wildness, complete with thriving denemid species, mere nautical miles from a sprawling metropolis. Sail south, going behind the scenes at a world-class vineyard and dining at a private lunch at a boutique vineyard in the world-renowned Valle de Guadalupe. Meet the residents of Isla Natividad, an incredibly successful co-op within the Vizcaino Biosphere, and learn the inspiring story of their sustainable fishing practices. And throughout, keep an eye to the horizon for migrating whales.

  • Discover the incredible biodiversity of Channel Islands National Park, home to over 2,000 species including 145 endemics

  • In El Vizcaino Biosphere Reserve, we explore Mexico's largest protected area. It is where resident snd migratory songbirds inhabit the arid landscape, dotted with sentinel cacti, adjacent to the Pacific where elephant seals quarrel on remote islands, seabirds wheel overhead and dolphins cut the ocean's surface.

  • Hike across the ever-shifting sand dunes of Isla Magdalena and count the 40 species of birds that inhabit this area

  • Watch the sunrise over the iconic El Arco de Cabo San Lucas

  • Snorkel in Cabo Pulmo National Marine Park, the only hard coral reef in North America, with over 220 species of fish
