aja California Sur was once an island and is a natural wonder, with an ecosystem unlike anywhere on the planet. With what Jacques Cousteau described as the “Aquarium to the World” (the Sea of Cortez) on one side and the Pacific Ocean on the other, the area has a very high rate of endemism in both plants and wildlife. Our guides have lived in Baja for over a decade and are certified Wilderness First Responders, each very knowledgeable about local history, flora, fauna. They are all great story tellers who love sharing their home town with visitors to the area. We’ve found the most important aspect of a successful adventure is having fun people with whom to spend a few days adventuring.

Scuba Diving or Snorkeling with Whale Sharks ($75 surcharge) (Sept to Jan) If you have ever dreamed of swimming with a giant from another era, this is a once in a lifetime opportunity to swim with the largest fish in the world. Whale sharks are rare, elusive and magnificent creatures. There are only four locations in the world where Whale Sharks are known to return reliably each year. To locate the whale sharks in the Sea of Cortez we use a spotter plane. For those who are not divers they can also go on the boat to do some snorkeling. The trip includes two to three dives, depending	on	weather	conditions.	Lunch	on	board.
