ABOARD NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC SEA BIRD!
WHALES & WILDNESS SPRING IN THE SEA OF CORTEZ

APRIL 15-22, 2017

ALL BOOKINGS WILL RECEIVE A $500 AIR CREDIT.  Book now!

DEAR MEMBERS AND FRIENDS,

A rare and incredible gathering occurs in spring in the upper Sea of Cortez. Pods of dolphins form aggregations of thousands of individuals. An amazing variety of whale species—humpback, sperm, fin, Bryde’s, and blue whales— come here, as well as huge schools of manta rays.

Sail the Sea of Cortez Sea of Cortezwith us, April 15-22, 2017, and explore its many islands free from tourist infrastructure and designated a UNESCO World Heritage site. We’ll hike islands where the shores teem with a cacophony of seabirds and kayak into quiet grottoes with unearthly echoes. See scores of bluefooted boobies and pelicans. Snorkel with playful sea lions and head out in an expedition landing craft in search of dolphins. Stroll the streets of Santa Rosalia, a historic mining town, with its wooden houses and church designed by Gustave Eiffel.

Cruising aboard the redesigned 62-guest National Geographic Sea Bird, you’ll find that this expedition is crafted with just the right balance of activity and leisure time. Unlike traditional getaways, you’ll travel with a team of expert naturalists, an undersea specialist, and a Lindblad-National Geographic certified photo instructor to gain the deepest appreciation of all that you’ll see. The ship is also outfitted with an array of tools for exploration —expedition landing craft, kayaks, snorkeling gear, stand-up paddleboards, an underwater camera, and more. With a flexible itinerary, we’re free to follow the seasonal movements of wildlife to optimize sightings.

I hope you’ll join us for this adventure that is both enriching and fun. You’ll come away from your expedition renewed and with an appreciation of how much a week’s time can change your perspective. To make your reservation, please return the enclosed reservation form or call 800-252-4910.

Sincerely,
