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 Espiritu Santo.
Witness a spectacular Baja sunrise this morning while searching for marine mammals in the upper San Jose 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.
Wake up anchored in one of Isla Espiritu 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 stand up 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.
Disembark in downtown La Paz this morning and transfer to Los Cabos airport.
