Baja California Holiday Voyage: A Living Sea and Desert Isles

Skip to


Transport your holiday traditions to Baja California for a spectacular celebration of wildness. Designated by UNESCO as a marine world heritage site and dubbed “the world’s aquarium” by Jacques Cousteau, the waters and islands of the Gulf of California are places of legendary biodiversity. This isolated region is, arguably, the best place in the world to keep watch for a vast variety of whale species plus massive pods of dolphins, leaping mobula rays, and seabirds.

Highlights

Devil ray jumping out of the water in Mexico
  • Spend your holiday season in search of large pods of dolphins, blue and humpback whales, and other marine mammals

  • Explore the sculpted desert shoreline by kayak, hike uninhabited beaches, and snorkel among fish and acrobatic sea lions

  • Take in the stunning hues of a Baja California sunset at a festive, holiday-themed celebration

  • Visit the island of San Pedro Mártir to witness crowds of lounging sea lions and expanses of sea where huge pods of dolphins gather

  • Visit the old mining town of Santa Rosalía, with its wooden homes and historic steel church, designed by Gustave Eiffel

  • With National Geographic Global Explorers, our exclusive family program, kids and teens will learn about this vibrant part of the world—from migrating gray whales to desert plant species
