Treasures of the Sea of Cortez

We have great pleasure in announcing Cruise & Maritime Voyages' entry into the soft expedition voyages of exploration market and invite you to join us onboard Astoria on her special introductory Sea of Cortez program.
We have a choice of six 11-night voyages between 7th December 2019 and 31st January 2020 and present an authentic and memorable way to explore the Sea of Cortez visiting eight contrasting ports on this novel cruise itinerary. Sail from Puerto Peñasco (Rocky Point) on the Mexican coast, conveniently located close to the border of the United States of America. We have organised special optional return coach transfers from Phoenix, Arizona on each sailing and return date to compliment your ongoing travel arrangements.

Explore the natural splendors and wildlife of the Baja California Peninsula and Mexico's mainland coast that border the sparkling waters of the Sea of Cortez. The Gulf of California is one of the most ecologically diverse places on the planet. From exotic islands to world-renowned vacation destinations, discover truly breathtaking nature infused with authentically rich Mexican culture and amazing experiences to cherish always.

The Sea of Cortez is a unique destination that has been described as a "living aquarium" by Jacques Cousteau and has served as an inspiration to many including John Steinbeck. With its many islands designated as UNESCO World Heritage Sites, it is home to an impressive array of marine mammals, more than 900 species of fish and a lavish array of birds. Diverse land creatures provide even more fantastic wildlife encounters.

Voyage aboard the boutique -style Astoria that offers a truly distinctive cruise experience. With her handsome profile, traditional walk-around promenade deck and high standard of service, Astoria is a classic, beautifully upgraded or designed ocean-going cruise ship offering very well appointed and comfortable facilities and cabin accommodations. Carrying just 500 guests, she features all the benefits of cruise ship travel within an intimate and very friendly ambience.

Awe-inspiring views and a vast range of optional excursions make a cruise around the Sea of Cortez an exciting option for a very special vacation that showcases many of Mexico's splendidly popular as well as off-the-beaten-path gem destinations. You may even choose to add on one of our pre or post-cruise hotel packages to tailor-create your ideal Sea of Cortez experience.

We look forward to the pleasure of your company aboard Astoria.
