Pristine beaches and Baja serenity on an active, compact expedition

Experience a balance of wildness and wellness over five days aboard National Geographic Venture, a floating base camp off La Paz. Fall under the spell of the city’s charms and actively explore unsullied landscapes with a chance to revel in pure nature. Each day explore a new island or shore. A beach BBQ as dusk shades into starlit night or a yoga session on deck are some of the soul-lifting ways to end active days.

  • Exult in the pristine beauty of the Sea of Cortez—azure water, bays, beaches, unique flora and fauna— and roam free in wide-open spaces

  • Paddle sea-carved caves by kayak and snorkel with playful sea lions and schools of colorful reef fish

  • Stroll long, white sand beaches in search of pearl oyster shells

  • Enjoy a sunset beach BBQ, a bonfire, and end your day with stargazing

  • Alight in this wild, beautiful place, with options to indulge in fitness classes, yoga sessions, mindful meditations, and more

Thrills & Rejuvenation, Close to Home

Given the world events of the past year and a half, the life-affirming, bliss-heavy experiences offered by this itinerary have never felt more necessary. De-stress, detox or go wild in these uninhabited isles in the beautiful Sea of Cortez. Here, in the pristine place Jacques Cousteau called the “world’s aquarium,” sea life is prone to performance—a ballet of leaping mobula rays, acrobatic pods of dolphins, and the aquatic pyrotechnics of spouting and breaching whales. Take in these natural spectacles as a reward for enduring the everyday—and hold on to the magic into the new year.

Baja California, Wild Escapes

Day By Day

Make the expedition as relaxing or as active as you like. Go on an aerobic hike up a desert canyon, or take photos in a forest of towering cacti. Zodiac, kayak, and stand-up paddleboard along the shore to see and shoot photos of plunge-diving pelicans and blue-footed boobies. Each day join a different naturalist as you choose; there are no assigned groups.
