You'll explore where the desert meets the sea, over 6,000 animal species and over 3,000 plant species in the nearby desert, some species which grow nowhere else on earth. Expedition leaders, naturalists and regional specialists will guide you onboard ship, Zodiacs and kayaks to experience Mexico's Sea of Cortez completely, and help turn curious travelers into lifelong explorers.
