UnCruise Adventures, home to exciting escapes in some of the most beautiful locations in the world has added two new 7-day routes that allows visitors to explore the Sea of Cortez. Explorers will have the option to choose between packages that get them up close with whales and sharks or dolphins and sea lions.
The Sea of Cortez is filled with plenty of marine life, which guests get to spot throughout their 7-night stay upon a 66-passanger Safari Voyager cruise ship. Each route offers opportunities to take a mule ride along the sea guided by local ranchers, hikes where the mountains meet the sea, and options to kayak, paddleboard, or snorkel. For each day of the tour, guest have breakfast, lunch, and dinner served with options for cocktails and more at the ship’s lounge.
Thought the cruise was announced in late 2021, it’s just started off this year, setting sail in January. The season is set to go on until June, with plenty of options to book from here until then. Rates start off at $5,595 per person and include a $350 port tax on top. Prices vary depending on which cabin or suite chosen, with the Commodore Suite taking a spot as the most luxurious, with a per person price tag of nearly $10,000. Guests can also plan to choose adult only sail dates, which are listed on the site as well.
Those interested don’t have to do much else by get to the San Jose Airport, as UnCruise Adventures and their Los Cabos partners have planned the rest. Shuttles direct from the airport to the coast of La Paz are pre-arranged, food is planned and prepared onboard, and amenities are just a request away. The ship has a few spots for socializing including bars and restaurants and will even host a few events to bring passengers together.
Many Los Cabos hotels have teamed up with their newest adventure provider, offering special rates for guests who wish to stay longer in Los Cabos and explore. At the beginning of this season, UnCruise was offering steep discounts for bookings January through June 2022, and they have not yet announced if they will do the same for the 2023 season. Spots are already bookable for 2023 and 2024 and, at least as of now, spots for all cabin types are available.
Los Cabos is the perfect vacation spot when temperatures start to drop, with typical skies sunny and 75°. It marks the fourth area added to UnCruise Adventures excursions with warm weather, following Hawaii, Costa Rica, and Panama. The waters of the Sea of Cortez are always warm, only dipping to the mid-60’s in January and February.
Waters have a reputation for getting rough only from June until October. However, given nature’s unpredictable temper, winds and waves can pick up at any time. Fortunately, the Sea of Cortez is well connected, with several anchorages, most of which are all within a 10-mile radius. In case of an emergency, docking is just a quick turn away, where guests can disembark and take shelter in a nearby hotel if needed.
Those interested in booking one of the newest cruise ship routes to hit Los Cabos can do so on the UnCruise Mexico Official website, choosing the package of their liking. A few requirements guests must have include a passport and proof of the Covid-19 booster shot. Even though Covid-19 cases in the area hit an all-time low, Los Cabos’ top priority is keeping both citizens and visitors safe and avoiding any opportunity for outbreaks that would increase cases.
