Venture to Baja California and the Sea of Cortez to enter the California gray whale birthing lagoons of Bahía Magdalena for close encounters with these gentle giants―a rare privilege in the natural world. Go aboard the 100-guest expedition ship National Geographic Venture to get up close with whales, snorkel among sea lions, stand-up paddleboard, and hike the pristine desert islands dotting the Sea of Cortez. Get more with the top expedition team in the region: naturalists, an undersea specialist, and a certified photo instructor who is aboard to make sure you go home with some of the best shots of your life.
