includes 3 full days of activities – snorkelling, kayaking, hiking and even a
trial scuba lesson! You will spend 2
nights aboard our well appointed vessel, El Duque. Spend your evenings star gazing and listening
to the waves lapping on hull and rocking you gently to sleep. On this trip we will spend our time around
the Espiritu Santo Archipelago, often called the Jewel of the Sea of
Cortez. There are numerous sandy bays
and beaches to explore, reefs to snorkel and abundant wildlife above and below
the surface. There is a famous and very
playful colony of sealions at the northern end of the island and we will make
sure that you get the chance to visit them.
Day 1: Welcome aboard El Duque (about 8:30am). Travel out to
Isla Espiritu Santo. Snorkel a reef and watch for wildlife. Anchor
in a quiet bay for dinner and relaxation, perhaps a swim or kayak to the beach
for a stroll.
Day 2: In the morning snorkel with the sealions at Los
Islotes (no in water activity permitted June-August), a colony of over 400 hundred with lots of playful pups and explore
the rugged beauty of the northern tip of Espiritu Santo. In the afternoon
take a hike on the island to explore the desert ecosystem. End the day
with a delicious meal and sleeping on the boat in a quiet bay.
Day 3: Welcome to the underwater world - discover what it is
like to scuba dive! Learn the basics of scuba in what Jacques Cousteau
called “the aquarium of the world’ with a try dive dive from your onboard
instructor. Return towards La Paz whilst watching for marine life.
Arrive back to town about 5pm to disembark and transfer to your hotel.
