Detailed Itinerary

B/L/D indicates meals included with trip cost.

Day 1

Arrive in La Paz, transfer to hotel. Welcome dinner and trip overview that evening.  We will be staying at the Posada Luna Sol, a quaint Mexican Inn that symbolizes the relaxed yet elegant style of Baja.  Why stay in a bland and impersonal huge hotel when the hospitality of a small, quiet Inn awaits to welcome us?


Day 2

Meet at 7 am in hotel lobby, transfer to Magdalena Bay, approx. 3.5 hrs. Lunch en-route. Settle into camp, orientation, our first whale watch experience, happy hour and our first gourmet dinner under the stars.

A Few Words From Past Experiences

"I returned from Baja with a sense of peace and of being centered. A week later that feeling has not left me, the blissful state continues. We left San Diego with a group of strangers and came back feeling like family.

What an extraordinary experience! The beauty of the setting and the miracle of the whales is really impossible to put into words. I got to pet a mother and her baby on my birthday, it doesn't get much better than that.

We were thoughtfully guided through an amazing week of body, mind and soul enrichment. I will never forget this trip. I am truly blessed to have been able to go. Thank you to all who made it work and, of course, especially to you Chess and the magic you create."

Marcia Bonini

"Living on a remote edge of Magdalena Bay in the shelter of huge sand dunes sculpted by mother nature was a wonderfully relaxing experience. Sunrises over the glassy bay and sunsets over the sand dunes and Pacific Ocean were always peaceful and soothing. The camaraderie that developed among new acquaintances in the process of communing with the whales made the experience a delight. The soft skin of mother and baby whales seeking a friendly human encounter was striking. Thanks Chess. It was a great trip."

Steve Cameron

"The feeling of relaxation and peacefulness experienced on most vacations fade soon after the return to home and work responsibilities. But the Baja whale adventure was unique. It is now several weeks since my return and I marvel at the lingering sense of calm I have experienced.

The trip was truly too wonderful for words. Just a peruse through my photo album would give you an idea of the joy each of my fellow travelers experienced - the looks of awe, laughter and joy on each of our faces tell the story of a Chess Edwards' trip better than anything I could write."
