Passport to Adventure Baja and the Sea of Cortez Mexico
The port of La Paz, Mexico is the launching point for this aquatic discovery. Julie &Mark frolic with the playful sea lions, a protected species once slaughtered for their skins, now a favorite with snorkelers. On the Isle of Espiritu Santo they meet a giant squid, climb strange rock formations and kayak picturesque bays in the Sea of Cortez. Back on the mainland, they hop on mountain bikes to experience the desert and meet some nomadic surf rats on a quest for waves. The highlight of this trip is a face to face encounter with the magnificent Gray Whales, that each year make the migration to Magdalena Bay to give birth. On tiny “ponga” boats, Mark &Julie share magical moments with these forty ton mothers and their inquisitive calves.
