Day 2 March 4th
Depart for Isla Espiritu Santo, this island is often described as the Jewel of the Sea of Cortez. Turquoise water, white sand beaches, desert landscape, no inhabitants, amazing. On our first day we travel over to the island whilst looking out for whales, dolphins and rays and also receive an introduction to the theory of SCUBA diving. When we arrive at our first location it’s time to get in the water at the beach and learn how to use the dive equipment and some of the basics regarding skills and buoyancy. After lunch we get to go diving and swim in ‘the aquarium of the world!’. After this amazing experience there is time to snorkel and explore the beach. Dinner is on the boat, anchored in a bay under the stars.
Includes: Discover Scuba Lesson, all meals, snacks and soft drinks.
Day 3 March 5th
Time to go see the sea lions! We have the opportunity to go and snorkel with sea lions; the juveniles are incredibly curious and fun to be in the water with! After lunch we will explore on land with a hike to across the island. In the evenings perhaps we will get lucky with bioluminescence in the water, great for swimming in or kayaking!
Includes: All activities, all meals and soft drinks.
Day 4 March 6th
Spend the day kayaking, snorkeling and exploring the island on and in the water. There is also the opportunity to relax in a hammock on the boat with a good book, music and friends. We will return back towards the Baja mainland and spend the last night at anchor in a beautiful bay.
Includes: All activities, all meals and soft drinks
Day 5 March 7th
This morning you get to snorkel with the largest fish in the sea! Whalesharks feed on plankton in the Bay of La Paz during the winter months. It is a surreal experience seeing these magnificent creatures appear out of the blue and swimming beside them; they are gentle giants. After this you will return to the boat to shower, change and pack. Enjoy a farewell lunch then you will transfer to Cabo (about 2 hours) where you trip ends – you may chose to spend an extra day in Cabo – sightsee, spa, SUP, party or relax the choice is yours.
