Baja California and the Sea of Cortez have some of the richest diversity of marine life in the world. Our journey was aboard the National Geographic Sea Bird, a 152 foot expedition ship.
We explored the Pacific side of the Baja peninsular as well the Gulf of California. We were fortunate to see 6 different whale species, thousands of dolphins, leaping mobular rays along with Humboldt Squid and many varieties of sea birds. As we hiked on the many remote islands we came across giant Saguaro cactus and the unusual barrel cactus along with elusive chuckwallas and spiny tailed iguanas.
This was a truly Remarkable Journey where the Desert meets the Sea.
