The 'Base Camp Baja' voyages will explore Espiritu Santo and Isla Partida, spectacular regions within the Sea of Cortez, aboard the 30-cabin National Geographic Sea Bird. Seven departures are offered, December through January.
'The Sea of Cortez is among the most peaceful corners of the world. I can think of no better place to realize the mindfulness that exhale offers,' said Sven Lindblad, ceo and president, Lindblad Expeditions.
He added the itinerary offers a mix of exploration and restorative exercise in a setting where participants might not see a human being other than their shipmates for the duration of the voyage.
National Geographic Seabird will serve as a floating base camp. Passengers can customize each day as they wish: they can snorkel among sea lions and through schools of colorful reef fish, explore the coastline by kayak and stand-up paddleboard, challenge body and mind through exhale wellbeing programs and spend evenings at beachside bonfires and barbecues. They can hike for miles over black lava and pink volcanic ash and spend hours photographing arroyos, cacti and birdlife alongside a Lindblad-National Geographic photography instructor.
Well-being programs include core fusion barre, bootcamp and high intensity interval training classes as well as exhale power yoga classes on deck, stand-up paddleboard yoga, transformational mindfulness hikes and assisted stretching. Hour-long neck and shoulder massages will be offered prior to evening cocktails, while exhale chill yoga classes will be offered in the evening, alongside group guided meditation.
Beyond the daily activities, the exhale experience will be integrated throughout the journey to include healthy food options, spa therapies and in-room products.
Rates begin at $1,990 per person, double occupancy, for the three-night voyage and $2,650 for the four-night voyage. Both include free bar tab.
