Baja Tour: La Paz to Loreto Sea of Cortez, Magdalena Bay Grey Whale Lagoons:
This 11-day/10-night expedition among the scattered islands along the shore of the Baja peninsula begins with an overland visit to the gray whale breeding and birthing lagoons of Bahia Magdalena or San Ignacio. Encounter whales up close and capture unforgettable photos! You also get to snorkel with young sea lions, walk along desert island ridges and palm-lined arroyos, visit a remote fishing village, and kayak into a mangrove lagoon.

South East Alaska Tour: Western Passages between Sitka and either Juneau or Petersburg:

This 8-day/7-night expedition visits the most beautiful locations along the western passages, traveling through canyons and fjords, stopping at beautiful anchorages at Admiralty, Baranof and Kupreanof islands, observing bears, whales, eagles and more along the way. Hiking or kayaking, accompanied by the on-board naturalist, we will learn about the fauna and flora of the area. Each trip varies depending on the weather; some highlights may include:
 
Baird, Le Conte or Dawes Glaciers: Each trip includes a visit to one or two glaciers. Each adventure is different, exploring the newly foliated outwash plain exposed by Baird Glacier’s retreating ice, cruising as close as a quarter mile of Le Conte’s or Dawes’ calving glacier face.

Sailing through waters frequented by humpback whales and orca, we will be on the lookout for their tell-tale blows. Finding our night’s anchorage among the small bays and inlets that indent Admiralty Island, we will launch our kayaks and search for brown bears foraging along the shore.
