The drive today is about 120 miles, approximately 3 hours, with stops. Getting on/off a glass bottom boat, study cruise about 45 minutes. Walking approximately 1/2 mile. Each evening aboard the ship, we’ll review the day’s schedule and staff will present an overview of the next day’s activities. There will generally be a choice of a moderate and a more strenuous activity. Each of us will choose the activities we’d like to join.
At the hotel, we’ll have a breakfast buffet with coffee, tea, juice and water included; other beverages available for purchase.
We’ll transfer via motorcoach to the Cabo San Lucas Marina for an expert-led field trip. We’ll board a glass bottom boat and visit Pelican Rock, the famous arch that is a symbol of Cabo San Lucas. Beginning in the bay, we’ll round the arch and enter the open ocean to view the tip of Baja California Sur. Birds and sea life abound, from rocks full of pelicans to sea lions swimming for fish below our feet. We'll then journey north via motorcoach along a road — with views of where the cacti-filled desert meets pristine beaches — to the lush oasis of Todos Santos, home of a sophisticated arts community. We’ll visit the mission established by the Jesuits in 1724, then have some time to stroll through the galleries of this charming town.
At a restaurant in Todos Santos.
An overland transfer to La Paz will acquaint us with the dramatic Baja landscape and the our group leader will provide us with an overview preparing us for the week that lies ahead. In the early evening, we will meet the expedition staff in La Paz and embark our expedition vessel, the Safari Endeavor. After getting our cabins, we will participate in the mandatory safety drill. During cocktail hour, we’ll have hors d'oeuvres with both alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages.
Choices will include soup or salad; a meat, fish, or vegetarian entrée; a side dish; and dessert; plus non-alcoholic beverages as well as premium spirits, wine, and beer.
Meet the crew of the Safari Endeavour and learn about the upcoming adventures as they indicate the activities that will be available the next day. Settle in and get a good night’s rest for the day ahead.
