We are pleased to announce that our next Hiking & Natural History destination will be Baja California, Mexico. Join us February 17-23, 2019 for Baja Californa : Gray Whales & Desert Trails. We will begin in Loreto with stroll along the waterfront and boat trip on the Gulf of California (Sea of Cortez). Then we travel across the desert pennisula to the calving lagoons of the migratory Gray Whales for three chances to be up close and personal with the whales. There will be options for light hiking and birdwatching every day.

This tour is full, please send us an email if you're interested in future dates.

We will enjoy 4 whale watch trips on small modern boats operated by expert Mexican guides. Our chances are excellent for close encounters and photographs of the migratory Gray Whales that will be in the coastal lagoons to give birth and mate. Some whales are friendly and intentionally come close to the boats. We might also see Bottlenose Dolphins and many species of seabirds.

Locations for light hiking (1-3 miles) will include the waterfront in Loreto, a beach lined with mangroves, the upland desert benaeth dormant Three Virgens Volcano, and the desert oasis pueblo of San Ignacio.
Birds we may see include: Vermillion Flycatcher, Verdin, Roadrunner, Crested Caracara, Reddish Egret & Little Blue Heron.
