AMONG THE GREAT WHALES
BAJA CALIFORNIA & THE SEA OF CORTEZ
ABOARD NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC VENTURE

January 28-February 6, 2019

DEAR MEMBERS AND FRIENDS,
Baja California is utterly remarkable and unforgettable! It provides an opportunity to discover and revel in a pristine wilderness few people imagine exists in our North American ‘backyard.’ The Baja you explore is remote, wild, and untrammeled—and yet not far at all: a short hop from the West Coast. And for East Coast and Midwest travelers, Baja more than rewards your jet travel, especially in the winter with its desert warmth, beauty, scenic undersea, and amazing wildlife.

Baja

Roam freely aboard the brand-new National Geographic Venture, a nimble expedition ship ruled by wind, wave, and weather, and have the kind of experiences that only Nature can provide. In winter, California gray whales give birth and raise their calves in the nursery lagoons of San Ignacio. Spend time among them, as you board Zodiacs for extraordinary up-close encounters with these gentle giants and their playful calves, who often surface to make heart-warming eye contact with you.

Explore the Sea of Cortez, where there are countless opportunities to experience a living sea. Observe dolphins by the score and encounter a variety of whales, including deep-diving sperm whales and perhaps even rare blue whales. Snorkel with sea lions, hike into cacti forests of surreal beauty, kayak along remote coastlines—and generally have the place to yourselves.

See, learn, and do more with a team of expert naturalists, including an undersea specialist, who know this area well. For photographers, this paradise offers extraordinary light to capture it all with the help of a Lindblad-National Geographic certified photo instructor. In addition, Greg Marshall, Emmy-Award winning filmmaker and biologist, joins the expedition, providing invaluable insight.

Baja is one of those places on the planet that supplies the human spirit the tonic of wildness it needs. Few experiences are as rewarding. To make your reservation, please return the enclosed reservation form or call 800-252-4910.

Sincerely,

Margaret (President of Betchart Expeditions, Inc)
