Day 1 San Jose Del Cabo | La Paz | Embark

Arrive at Los Cabos airport and transfer to La Paz, where you’ll embark National Geographic Venture between 4:00 pm and 4:30 pm. If you are flying in this day, we have arranged transportation form the airport in San Jose Del Cabo. Set sail on arrival, for a sunset cruise of Bahía La Paz en route to Isla Espiritu Santo. 

Day 2-4 Isla Espiritu Santo | Isla Partida | Los Islotes

  • Ship
  • 3 Breakfasts, 3 Lunches, 3 Dinners
Wake up anchored in one of Isla Espiritu Santo’s beautiful bays and watch the cliffs light up as your wellness. Specialist leads a morning yoga or qi gong class, on deck, or on shore.

For three full days, you’ll have the luxury to explore as much or as little as you like, with the ship as your mobile base-camp. Explore the dramatically eroded shoreline of Isla Partida on a one-way kayak journey, or join a challenging hike up a rocky arroyo to the crest of the island. Meander a different arroyo with your Naturalists to learn details of the region’s geology and natural history, then learn to standup paddleboard, or hone skills you already possess. Spend a morning snorkeling with playful and curious sea lions, or photograph their antics from expedition landing craft. Relax with an afternoon massage, then go ashore for a beach barbecue dinner followed by a bonfire under the stars. However you choose to spend these days, you’ll be rewarded with a sense of well-being that comes only from spending quality time in nature.

Day 5 La Paz | Disembark | San Jose Del Cabo

Disembark in downtown La Paz this morning and transfer to Los Cabos airport for those departing Baja.
