Meet the Friendly Whales of Baja with CMA


Join Cabrillo Marine Aquarium (CMA), March 6 through March 14, 2018, for a trip that truly is the Journey-of-a-Lifetime!

Pacific gray whales return to San Ignacio lagoon each year to mate and give birth. During this nine-day excursion we will 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.

Interested in Going to Baja

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 islands that are home to elephant seals, Guadalupe fur seals, a multitude of birds, diverse geological formations and a wide range of native vegetation.

Each passenger will receive an illustrated natural history guide containing information about animals sighted and locations visited.  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 the educational aspect of the trip.

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.  This trip is priceless, but the cost per person is $2,890. 

Cabrillo Marine Aquarium is located at 3720 Stephen M. White Drive, San Pedro, and is a facility of the City of Los Angeles Department of Recreation and Parks.
