All about the SEA OF CORTEZ – Aboard 12-Guest Luxury Yacht “Pacific Provider”.

The Sea of Cortez, a UNESCO World Heritage site, was considered “the world’s aquarium” by Jacques Cousteau. It is one of the richest bodies of water on the planet. Its diverse sea is home to more than 900 varieties of fish, more than 2,000 species of marine invertebrates and 39% of the world’s total number of marine mammals. Several species of whales regularly visit this ecological wonderland, and the world’s largest fish, the whale shark, is often spotted by our guests.

  1. Day 1 Arrive La Paz - Bahia Balandra

    Swim, kayak, or snorkel in the picturesque bay and enjoy the pristine white beaches all to yourself

    We’ll meet you at San Jose del Cabo Airport and bring
    you to La Paz for our early afternoon embarkation.
    After touring your stateroom, you’ll get an introduction
    to the ship and a safety briefing, and we’ll be ready to
    cruise to Bahia Balandra, a picturesque azure bay
    surrounded by several pristine beaches. After a presunset
    swim, kayak, or snorkel, you’ll enjoy your first of
    many sunsets before sitting down to the first of
    numerous incredible dinners.

  2. Day 2 Ensenada Candelero & Isla Espiritu Santo

    Swim with the whale sharks and hike the natural springs

    Waking up at Bahia Balandra, after breakfast, you’ll
    depart to swim alongside whale sharks with crew and
    naturalists. Swimming next to these newly endangered,
    gentle, and massive fish is a weekly highlight and, for
    many, a true bucket list activity. Returning to the ship
    for lunch, we’ll make our way to Ensenada Candelero.
    With fantastic snorkeling, and a hike up to the only
    natural spring on Isla Espiritu Santo, take in the views of
    the Sea of Cortez, amazing rock formations on the
    island, and keep your eyes peeled for the elusive and
    endemic black jackrabbits who inhabit the island. Relax
    in the jacuzzi after dinner and take in the stars with a
    craft margarita before resting for the next day.

  3. Day 3 Island Hopping

    Spend the day game fishing and island hopping at
    sunset.

    Waking up in Ensenada Candelero, you’ll be able to take
    advantage of the activities you weren’t able to fit in the
    day before. Take a skiff out fishing, looking for local
    game fish to have prepared for dinner (fish tacos,
    anyone?), or continue relaxing on a secluded beach,
    sipping on an ice-cold beer under the hot midday sun. In
    the evening, we’ll make our way to the remote island of
    Isla San Francisquito, the locale for tomorrow’s
    incredible day.

  4. Day 4 Isla San Francisquito

    Enjoy scenic mountain hiking and afternoon snorkeling

    Isla San Francisquito offers a hike that is a crew favorite,
    up a mountain and across the ridge, taking in some of
    the most scenic views of the trip. The hook shaped bay
    has some of the most beautiful waters you’ll see during
    the week, a great opportunity for sport fishing and
    incredible snorkeling. In the afternoon, enjoy appetizers
    on the beach, craft cocktails, and a bonfire before
    returning to the boat for dinner. After dinner we’ll make
    the short trip to Isla San Jose.

  5. Day 5 - Isla San Jose & San Evaristo

    Kayak the secluded lagoon and explore an isolated local fishing village

    Waking up at Isla San Jose, you’ll prepare for a kayak
    trip through the lagoon and amongst the mangroves.
    Not only is Isla San Jose one of the most secluded places
    you’ll visit during the week, it’s one of the most unique
    due to the mangrove covered shoreline. For nonkayakers,
    hop in a skiff and fish for local snook, or put
    on a mask and fins and snorkel in search of the
    seahorses known to inhabit mangroves. During lunch,
    we’ll move to San Evaristo to explore the local fishing
    village. You’ll get a feel for local culture, see the catch of
    the day, and maybe even enjoy a beer with the locals
    who are separated from society by the Sea of Cortez.
    After dinner, we’ll make our way to Ensenada Grande,
    getting a good night’s sleep in a calm anchorage.

  6. Day 6 Ensenada Grande

    Choose your adventure – it’s all about you

    Your last full day presents adventure galore. After
    breakfast, your ability to “choose your own adventure”
    offers another new activity: swimming with sea lions.
    With the whole day at your disposal, you can also take a
    kayak out exploring, snorkel amongst shoals and reefs,
    or simply relax on the beach and soak up the sun with
    your fellow travelers. You’ll end the night sharing a
    cocktail with the crew, enjoying a slideshow of photos
    from the week, and reminiscing about every incredible
    detail of your week.

  7. Day 7 La Paz - Disembark

    As the anchor is weighed this morning, you’ll disembark
    and transit back to the historic city of La Paz. Say your
    goodbyes to the crew and with your bags taken to the
    shuttle for your transfer back to San Jose del Cabo
    Airport, make your way back home wishing you were
    still on the Pacific Provider with Offshore Outpost.
    Or add a visit to the amazing Copper Canyon. You will
    fly from La Paz across the Sea of Cortes to Los Mochis,
    where you will overnight in a beautiful historic hacienda
    in El Fuerte. In the morning, board the El Chepe narrow
    gauge train to climb from sea level to 8,000 ft – one of
    the world’s most scenic railways. Spend two nights at
    the beautiful Mirador Hotel, built on the rim of the
    canyon. End in Chihuahua for you flight home.
