Day 5 Isla San Francisco
Adventure in a playground of steep red bluffs and sweeping desert beach. Don some flippers for a snorkel among colorful sea life, put on your walking shoes for an exploratory romp along the ridge, grab a paddle and kayak, hop on a paddle board, or relax on the beach with the sand between your toes. The rugged beauty of the island makes it an ideal spot for escapades. (BLD)
Day 6 Los Islotes / Isla Partida
At Los Islotes—a steep craggy seamount leaping straight from the sea—slip into a wet suit for a snorkel with curious, agile young sea lion pups. At Isla Partida, get set for water play (kayaking, snorkeling, and stand up paddle boarding are all on the menu) and island hikes along desert beaches or into rocky arroyos. Or, kick back with a beach party—complete with a cool drink and sun-soaked lounge. (BLD)
Day 7 Whale Shark Excursions and La Paz
Safari Voyager has re-entered Bahia de la Paz, but we are not done yet! Today we will have the chance to swim with Whale Sharks. These gentle giants are filter feeders and pose no threat to humans. Our careful visitation and guides ensure we are also no threat to them. Go out on a skiff into the warm areas of the bay where Whale Sharks gather. Jump in with snorkel and fins, or stay on board the skiff with your camera. Either way, it's the experience of a lifetime and a perfect way to put a cap on your cruise. (BLD)
