Doing the Baja in Classic Style

Yacht Westward Westward is a classic

A classic yacht is doing a unique series of 10-day cruises in Baja, Mexico’s Sea of Cortez. The 86-foot eight-guest adventure yacht, Westward  was built in 1924 and has been completely restored, but still uses her original Atlas Imperial diesel engine. She was the flagship of the Alaska Coast Hunting and Cruising Co. and sailed in Washington, British Columbia and Alaska.

Now run by AdventureSmith Explorations, her new itinerary will combine a six-night/seven-day cruise with three nights of gray whale watching in San Ignacio Lagoon. The Westward carries an aluminum skiff and an inflatable utility boat to explore up close and ferry guests ashore. Double and single sea kayaks are also available for use. Meals are prepared from fresh, natural ingredients, including produce that is purchased from local Baja vendors and fisherman.
