The SPIRIT OF ADVENTURE is a small passenger vessel, not a cruise ship. She is 88 feet long and 25 feet wide and provides excellent stability. Accommodations are provided in 14 small, air-conditioned cabins with limited storage space. Most cabins have upper and lower bunk beds, wall to wall carpet, and reading lights. Four toilets and three freshwater showers are located on the main deck. Meals are prepared fresh daily and all passengers are served in one seating. The galley is equipped with a TV, DVD player and natural history books. Outside seating is available on the main deck as well as on the upper deck. Additionally, there are three aluminum skiffs on Natural History Trips, with outboard motors for the numerous shore excursions.

The SPIRIT OF ADVENTURE is S.O.L.A.S. rated to travel anywhere in the world. She is equipped with the most modern safety, navigation and communication devices. Her schedule includes not only the Pacific region of the Baja Peninsula, but the Gulf of California (Sea of Cortez) as well.

The crew is led by Mike Keating, the owner and operator with over 25 years of experience in the waters of Baja California, Captain Brian with over 20 years experience, his second mate, 3 licensed skiff operators, the chef and assistant. An experienced naturalist/wildlife interpreter accompanies every Natural History/Whale Watching trip to answer your questions. His regular evening programs inform about the next day’s activities and possible sightings. Guests set their own pace and choose the activities in which they like to participate.
