Ultimate Baja Whale Expedition

Accommodations

La Mision
Location
Loreto, Baja California Sur, Mexico

Against a rich tapestry of old Spanish mission heritage and authentic Mexican culture, La Mision offers deluxe waterside accommodations in Loreto, the first capital of the Californias. In the shadow of the Sierra de la Giganta Mountains, this boutique resort fronts the intense blue Sea of Cortez, where seabirds float and fishing boats bob offshore. Spacious guest rooms—the finest accommodations in Loreto—feature hacienda-style decor with distinctive touches including hardwood furnishings and Old World hand-laid plaster walls. Our guests enjoy luxury suites with ocean views, each with a private balcony or patio overlooking the sea, a travertine marble bath with walk-in shower, one king or two queen beds, armoire, flat screen TV, writing desk and all the amenities that ensure an exceptionally comfortable stay. Opportunities for relaxation include a large swimming pool surrounded by umbrella-shaded chaise lounges and a spa offering soothing therapeutic treatments featuring local spices and oils. The hotel is an easy few blocks' walk from the central plaza at the heart of Loreto's Old Town.

Our expedition ship, National Geographic Sea Bird, can reach places inaccessible to larger ships due to its small size, yet it comfortably accommodates 62 guests in 31 outside cabins. The feeling, we’re told, is often compared to that of a large private yacht, with everyone integral to the adventure. Accessibility means freedom. Our captains have decades of sailing experience in the regions we explore. They know when and where to navigate so that you feel the places we visit are all ours. Thanks to our sturdy fleet of Zodiacs and a brace of virtually untippable kayaks, you can be off the ship and out exploring Baja within a moment’s notice. Launch your kayak from a picturesque beach, hike with our naturalists or walk easily along a sandy dune. During your time with us, our expedition staff likes nothing better than to surprise and delight us by directing the ship toward breaching whales, bow-riding dolphins or into an alluring cove. Our seasoned crew consists of expert Zodiac drivers and considerate service providers. Their energy, enthusiasm and field expertise are sure to enhance your experience. This is what expedition travel is all about: not just seeing wildness, but being out there, in it.
