Cabrillo Aquarium to host annual whale-watching trip to Baja, Mexico.

Get Close to the Whales

   March 6 – 14   

Club Members are invited to join Cabrillo Marine Aquarium (CMA), March 6 – 14 for an annual trip that truly is the journey of a lifetime! During this nine-day ocean voyage we spend three exciting days anchored in San Ignacio Lagoon where friendly gray whales and their curious calves swim within arm’s length of the skiffs.

The trip also visits Todos Santos Island and land on San Benito, Cedros and San Martin Islands, where travelers will enjoy naturalist-led hikes on these remote, offshore islands that are home to elephant seals, Guadalupe fur seals, a multitude of birds, diverse geological formations and a wide range of native vegetation.

CMA’s experienced naturalists, including experts on gray whales and other marine mammals, birds, native island plants, and marine biology, will lead hikes and give shipboard presentations to add to the educational aspect of the trip. Each passenger will receive an illustrated natural history guide containing information about animals sighted and locations visited.

The 113-foot Royal Polaris out of San Diego will provide comfortable accommodations, a roomy galley/lounge and a friendly crew that furnishes hardy, flavorful meals.

To reserve your spot today, call Jim DePompei, (310) 548-7562 x248.

Fee: $2,950 includes food and lodging, plus $150 crew gratuity.
