Friendly Whales of Baja
Join Cabrillo Marine Aquarium (CMA), March 6 through March 14, 2018, for a trip that truly is the journey of a lifetime! During this nine-day ocean voyage we spend three exciting days anchored in San Ignacio Lagoon where friendly gray whales and their curious calves swim within arm’s length of the skiffs.

We will also visit Todos Santos Island and land on San Benito, Cedros and San Martin Islands where we’ll enjoy naturalist-led hikes on these remote, offshore islands that are home to elephant seals, Guadalupe fur seals, a multitude of birds, diverse geological formations and a wide range of native vegetation.

CMA's experienced naturalists, including experts on gray whales and other marine mammals, birds, native island plants, and marine biology, will lead hikes and give shipboard presentations to add to the educational aspect of the trip. Each passenger will receive an illustrated natural history guide containing information about animals sighted and locations visited.

The 113-foot Royal Polaris out of San Diego will provide comfortable accommodations, a roomy galley/lounge and a friendly crew that furnishes hardy, flavorful meals.

The per person cost for the trip is $2,890, plus a $150 gratuity for the very hard working boat crew, payable in cash on-board. Cabin assignments are on a first-come, first-serve basis.

To reserve your spot for 2018, call Larry Fukuhara at (310) 548-7562 x223.
