As I walked out of my yurt every morning at 5:45, I saw the sign just rising above the rocks that "bled" into the sea. Beautiful just doesn't describe it. As I walked to the common area to get my coffee (which I did every morning of my stay before heading out to do some fishing), barefoot and still in...

Dear MCaddy; Your great description of the sun rising over the islands to the East and the dance of color and light on the white sand beach of Las Animas brought back fond memories for me. So many others have shared that same magical sunrise barefoot on the white sand bay. Having the coffee ready to so early is always...

We have now made two trips to this very special place - one in March 2015 to see gray whales and their calves, and the second in September 2016 to watch whale sharks. Both trips were absolutely amazing. The beach yurts are comfy, the food is wonderful, and the wildlife fabulous. This year's trip suffered slightly in that our pilot/guide,...

We came home today, after 6 days, and if I could go back tomorrow I would! I cannot express all the reasons I loved this trip so I'll stick with just a few. 1. Safety - traveling to a remote part of Mexico is not for everyone. However, from the moment we had our safety briefing in the airport, I...

WOW! Thanks so much for your detailed and enthusiastic comments.

I just returned, as in yesterday, from a week with Baja AirVentures and I don't know where to start...guess I'll begin at the beginning: Excellent from the word go!

We started out on the Pacific side of Baja in the El Vizcaino Reserve. Our group was just five, and we had the most wonderful experience getting literally nose-to-nose with grey whales. Moms and babies came right up to our boat and let us pet them. They seemed to particularly enjoy getting their chins rubbed. Everything was by boat and...

If you want a true Baja experience, look no further. A quiet beach all to yourself, amazing sunrises and sunsets, aquatic experiences you'll remember the rest of your life - it's all there.
