(Baja) California Dreamin: Wednesday, 6/27

One minute, you’re snorkeling with colorful parrotfish — the next, you’re surrounded by sea lions, then watching gray whale mothers and their calves perform aquatic arabesques around your kayak.

Are you lost in a Wyland mural? Nope — just afloat with National Geographic Expeditions off incomparable Baja California in Bahía Magdalena and the Sea of Cortez.

Jacques Cousteau called these waters a “living aquarium,” and you’ll see why if you join Nat Geo photographer Ralph Lee Hopkins for a virtual expedition this Wednesday (June 27) from 8:00-9:00 p.m. EDT.

Ready to plan your trip so you can see this UNESCO World Heritage site in person? We’ve got you covered with plenty of options:

  • Experience one of nature’s greatest spectacles: Witness the magnificent gray whale migration through the inlets of Bahía Magdalena on our Baja California and the Sea of Cortez expedition.
  • Hone your photography skills: Sign up for our new Baja California Land and Sea Photography Expedition, which includes three days at the historic Rancho Las Cruces hotel and four nights aboard National Geographic’s Sea Bird.
  • Get adventurous on the open water: Snorkel amid sea lions, linger with dolphins, and kayak turquoise waters on our Holiday Journey in the Sea of Cortez. (And on land: We’ll also be doing some hiking on desert trails.)

Discover why Baja California should be on your must-visit list on Wednesday. Register today to reserve your “seat” on this special virtual expedition.
