Isla Coronado

Just off Loreto's coast float five deserted islands that invite exploration. Often visited is the pristine Coronados Island, considered by many as the prettiest island in the Baja peninsula. What appears to be a single island is, in fact, a small volcanic island and a nearby rocky islet. The 8 km (5 miles) crossing takes about 20 minutes aboard a panga.
Here you could admire the colonies of sea lions, dolphins and pelicans. Isla Coronados is an ideal site for snorkelling, swimming, or simply relaxing and sunbathing on the beach. Box lunch at the beach.

San Javier Mission
The 35 km (22 miles) trek takes about two hours by car to climb into the heart of the Sierra La Giganta mountain, past cactus fields that eventually give way to shady date palms. Set high in a mountain valley beneath towering volcanic walls, the impressive mission is of a Moorish style that is dramatic in its simplicity; its stonework and ornamentation are considered outstanding.
The excursion includes transportation to San Javier, a visit to the mission and a box lunch.

ConcepciÓn Bay & MulegÉ
Bahía Concepción is located just 77 km (48 miles) north of Loreto and is considered by people who have been around the world as one of the finest. The highway borders the bay, offering a marvelously scenic view of the mountain, with its deep escarpments, and of the desert, which alternate with white beaches and peacefully rolling waters. Its soft beaches are a delight for the traveler who prefers to lie under the sun and rest. Requeson, Coyote and Santispac are ones of the most famous beaches.

Mulege, a tropical oasis at the mouth of lovely Bahía Concepción has one Baja's only freshwater rivers. Date palms, citrus trees and other greenery surround this very simple and friendly village. The town is located between two mountains, in a valley which is the origin of a stream that runs peacefully to its encounter with the Sea of Cortez. There is a mission dating back to 1705 and an abandoned colonial-era prison. The Mission was abandoned in 1828 due to the lack of population.

Whale Watching (Bahia Magdalena)
Baja is well known as a great place to whale watch. The Gray whale spends summers in the waters off of Alaska, and then heads 6,000 miles (almost 10,000 km) south to the warmer lagoons of Baja in January, February and March. Their main reason for heading south is to mate and give birth in the protected shallow lagoons in Baja. No other location on Earth offers such an experience. The three main lagoons these whales return to every year are (from north to south) Laguna Ojo de Liebre about half way down the Peninsula, Laguna San Ignacio about 100 miles (160 km) further south, and Bahia Magdalena, which stretches about 100 miles (160 km) from the northern end to the southern end below Laguna San Ignacio. All three areas offer an excellent venue for whale watching up close.
This excursion consists of the transportation from Loreto to Bahía Magdalena and back, a 3-hour tour by boat to see the whales, as well as a lunch in a restaurant.

Basic Diving Trip
Sitting off of Loreto's coastline are five dramatic looking islands; Isla Carmen, Isla Danzante, Isla Coronado , Isla Monserrate and Isla Catalina, which are all part of the Loreto National Marine Park. This great 100-mile long stretch of sea that hugs Baja's peninsula in the Sea of Cortez, is refuge to a diversity of marine life and home to over 800 species of fish, unique only to the Sea of Cortez. It's not uncommon to jump into the open blue to snorkel with passing whales while on your way out to the dive site. The Sea of Cortez has long been known for its schools of dolphins, whale pods, sea turtles and sea lion harems, and of course, there is always the chance of meeting with the giant manta rays, hammerhead sharks and seasonal whale sharks. Brilliantly colored sea fans, black coral and invertebrate life blanket the rocky structures and at night the reefs open up into a rainbow of color. The diving spots depend on the weather, wishes of the group, dive master and captain criteria.

The excursion includes 2 dives, snacks, guide and weights.

Loreto is well known by its devoted fans to be one of North America's top Ocean game fish destinations. Known for its dynamite summer dorado fishing, Loreto also offers excellent yellowtail, marlin, roosterfish, yellowfin tuna, cabrilla, grouper and sailfish. The islands of Coronado, Carmen, Catalan, Montserrat and Danzante lie just off the coast of Loreto and offer protection from weather, varied fishing environments and amazing natural scenery. The excursion includes the use of the boat with all equipment and box lunch.
