Charter your own schooner and explore the Sea of Cortez in Mexico's Baja California

8 days

from £3,195pp (excluding flights)

This holiday idea to Baja California is a wonderful way to experience the tropcial waters of the Sea of Cortez home to an amazing array of marine life and white sand beaches. Charter your own schooner and set sail with your private crew and chef for a holiday of a lifetime.

  • Navigate the beautiful Sea of Cortez for unparalleled marine experiences
  • Snorkel with sea lions
  • Dine on remote beaches
  • Opportunity to go Whale watching, kayaking and fishing

The ship Bésame Mucho (Kiss Me Lots) is as romantic in the flesh (or rather wood) as it is in name and song. If you have not heard the wonderfully romantic song most famously sung by Cesaria Evora it is worth a listen. 90 feet of beautiful mahogany and billowing sails will take you through the crystal waters of the Sea of Cortez that sits between the east coast of Baja California and mainland Mexico. Go in search of whales and dolphins. Visit remote beaches, snorkel with sea lions and kayak through mangroves spotting for exotic birdlife.

There are 6 double cabins on the 2007 Turkish schooner which comprise of 2 master cabins, 2 doubles and 2 twins, each with en suite bathroom and A/C. Combining tradition with the comfort of a modern yacht Bésame Mucho offers guests a 4 person crew with two dining areas, plasma TV, DVD player, sundeck, kayaks, fishing and snorkelling gear. Charters can be booked for one day or seven.

Sue Grimwood, Travel Expert

"It was tremendously helpful to be able to speak to someone who had been to Antarctica before - Sue had been on the ship we had booked, so was able to give us some very useful information. We felt that at every stage of the booking process that we were in safe hands. "

""I was uncharacteristically worried about this trip - neurotic some might say - and I was given 110% support and help with everything. I had been disappointed by not being able to get a space on the 2014 trip and so Sue was stuck with me for 2 years - a testament to her patience and professionalism. I was confident in Sue - she knows Antarctica and speaks from experience, that is worth a huge amount. Emails, which I would send were responded to almost immediately.""
