The whale watching in Cabo during March was incredible! Humpback Whales are Ginormous, as Buddy the Elf would say. They are such fun whales to watch because they are so active, so curious, and always lively. Few things on the ocean are more exciting than a Humpback breach! While staying in Cabo San Lucas I went out with Whale Watch Cabo, and our guide, Lisa Hofmann, was awesome! There’s really no way to tell the story of the gorgeous Humpback Whales other than to do so in photos.
All photos were taken by Lisa Hofmann.[Read more…] about Is there Anything as Incredible as Ginormous Humpback Whale Watching in Cabo?
Isla Espiritu Santo is the most beautiful island in the Sea of Cortez, or the Gulf of California, and is a UNESCO World Heritage site! It is a treasure located two hours by boat from La Paz, aka “the Pearl”. (There used to be a lively pearl fishery here, but it is now all fished out. Just another reminder of why we need to practice sustainability!) La Paz has a statue along the Malecon, aka Boardwalk in English, that has a pearl in a shell. The statue isn’t correct, the pictured shell doesn’t make pearls, but it’s the thought that counts, right?[Read more…] about Experience the Wonder of Isla Espiritu Santo and Meet the Sea Lions of Los Islotes!
5 Adventures To Plan In South Africa
Of course, there are more than five adventures to take in South Africa. South Africa adventures are everywhere! In fact, it is more like 1001. However, since five is as good a number as any, we might as well start with five. If you are planning to visit South Africa, you are in a lot of luck.
You can stay for months on end and you will never have a single boring day. From game drives, to sailing around the Cape of Good Hope, climbing the spectacular table mountains and just sampling the nightlife, there is really no end to the things that you can do in South Africa for fun.

The best scuba diving in Cozumel might surprise you! I’ve been diving here for longer than I want to admit (30 years!), but there is always something new! That is always exciting for divers. Cozumel is famous for incredible, towering pinnacles of coral, so beautiful and so colorful it is a wonder to see. Turtles, eels, nurse sharks, fish…and the amazing drift diving is always a draw. When the Cozumel drift is just right, you barely have to kick, drifting happily down the reef, where the boat will always be waiting to pick you up. Fabulous! But there’s another side to scuba diving in Cozumel. It’s not quite muck diving, but it is the next best thing, looking for the little critters! How many frog fish and seahorses have you seen scuba diving in Cozumel? These sites are a photographer’s dream!
The fantastic Gray Whale Migration to Magdalena Bay in the Baja is a true natural wonder. It happens yearly, the Gray Whales come from the Bering Strait and Alaska to the warmer waters of the Baja in order to mate and raise their calves. These amazing mammals come to warmer waters to mate, and the gestation period for these whales is 12 months, so when they return the next year, some mamas are giving birth while others are mating. The peak of this gray whale migration is January to March of each year. Red Travel Mexico and I co-sponsored another trip together this year, our last one was also to the Baja, and it was a fabulous experience!
