Lindblad & National Geographic excursions provide a dependable and high quality experience. Their knowledgeable staff are excellent at informing guests of what they will, and have encountered, and are always encouraging us to ask questions.

We had several excursions captained by native people who took us close to Gray whales in the Magdalena Bay. We witnessed whales literally swimming a few feet under our small crafts, as well as surfacing right next to the boats.

Our hike from a small fishing village up a desert mountain to look out over the Pacific Ocean, and another across the sand dunes was breathtaking, (literally!) We encountered unique native plants; cacti, grasses, trees and shrubs of many varieties.
