Superyacht Charter Sea of Cortez

Sea of Cortez Yacht Charter

Private Yachting Cruises on the Sea of Cortez

The Sea of Cortez offers the most diverse collection of marine life in the world ready for you to explore on a superyacht charter. Snorkel amongst the reefs, dive amongst the turtles and dolphins, marvel at the giant manta rays as they ‘fly' out of the water. Watch from the deck as blue whales breach next to the yacht and Californian sea lions show off in front of you. Rent a crewed superyacht with YPI to have the best cruising possible in the Sea of Cortez. This is an example of an eight day yacht charter itinerary for the Sea of Cortez. Yacht charter itineraries are created individually for every client based around personal preferences and how you want to spend your time onboard your superyacht in Central America.

Beach at La Paz, Sea of Cortez

La Paz

The Peaceful Place

Enjoy a welcome cocktail and delicious lunch on board your motor or sailing boat before exploring this charming city. Visit the Nuestra Senora de La Paz cathedral before heading to the Whale Museum to learn about their habits and evolution. Deepen your knowledge of this area’s culture and history at the Natural History Museum. Saunter along the waterfront and admire the many statues along the way – the beautiful bronze Dove of Peace, the giant clam shell and its silver pearl, the Queen of the Sea, dolphins, whales and manta rays culminating in a bronze of Jacques Cousteau - perfect for a selfie.

Superyacht Charter Bahia Balandra

Bahia Balandra

El Hongo

Enjoy your first breakfast on board as your superyacht takes a short cruise to this stunning location. The dune backed beach of Balandra sweeps round a wide bay shallow enough to wade across. Take the kayaks or paddleboards to skim over the surface to other small coves. Explore the mangroves rich with wildlife or hike up the red rock hills. Another selfie moment beckons with El Hongo – a mushroom-shaped rock at the end of the bay – which is the emblem of the area. Have a picnic lunch in one of the small coves and snooze away the afternoon. Enjoy the golden sunset before a delicious dinner on board.

Superyacht Charter Isla San Francisco

Isla San Francisco

Sea Stars & Urchins

Gaze out at your surroundings as the motor or sailing boat cruises further north – look out for manta rays, dolphins – maybe the odd passing whale. Try your hand at some deep sea fishing en route – your chef will be happy to prepare your catch for dinner. Head ashore at Isla San Francisco and hike up the narrow ridge which divides this tiny island; take some snaps of your fellow charterers kayaking in the calm waters below. The shallow waters are ideal for snorkeling amongst giant blue damselfish, beautiful sea stars and flower urchins. Watch the sunset whilst enjoying a margarita before your beach barbeque.

Superyacht Charter Isla San Jose

Isla San Jose

Salt and Sand

Give your breakfast orders to the onboard chef as the superyacht relocates to the next stop. San José is an island of stark contrasts - beautiful sandy bays, green mangroves and rocky scrubland with a cacti-studded desert; the expanse of salt flats hidden by ochre-colored cliffs. Climb up the cliffs for an Instagram-worthy view. Explore the mangroves by small tender or kayak. Take selfies with the giant Saguaro cacti or swim in the naturally protected bay. Watch the Blue Footed Boobies formation dive for their lunch – listen for the whistle which signals the plunge into the sea. Enjoy this perfect example of a diverse ecosystem. After dinner, relax in the jacuzzi and gaze into the night sky glittering with stars onboard your crewed motor or sailing boat.

Superyacht Charter Sea of Cortez

Isla Partida and Los Islotes

Up Close and Personal with Sea Lions

Ensure that your cameras/GoPro’s are fully charged as you ready yourself to meet the inhabitants of Los Islotes, home to a colony of Californian sea lions. Film these bright, friendly creatures as they show off and frolic right in front of you. It may even be possible to snorkel with them and their pups. On Isla Partida dive amongst the rocks teeming with colourful angel fish or rainbow wrasse. Soak up the sun on Ensenada Grande - voted one of the best beaches in Mexico - or paddleboard around the many peninsulas that make up this islet. Climb up to the cliff tops and marvel at the myriad shades of blue and greens stretching out around you. Share your photos and adventures over another delicious dinner on board your superyacht.

Superyacht Charter Isla Espiritu Santo

Isla Espiritu Santo

A Pearl of a Place

Once a pearl farming center, this island is now a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve. The cliffs are striped with tan sandstone, red volcanic rock and black basalt making a stunning backdrop to the beautiful sandy bays. Dive right in amongst tropical fish and marine animals such as turtles, dolphins and giant manta rays. Kayak around the many secluded coves and reserve your spot for a picnic lunch. Hike up the hills and watch black fregate birds fishing for their supper. Have a go at landing a yellowfish tuna to score many envious ‘likes’ on Instagram or simply relax on board with a good book and your attentive superyacht crew. After dinner, listen to a playlist of Latin American music compiled by your crew and try a bit of samba or cha-cha-cha under the stars.

Superyacht Charter La Paz

La Paz

Spoil Yourself

Have a lazy breakfast onboard your motor or sailing boat as you enjoy your final cruise back to La Paz. Head ashore to explore the shopping opportunities to find your souvenirs and gifts for folks back home. Visit the Casa Parra Gallery for native Mexican arts and crafts and locally made jewellery. Spend the day at the Espiritu Spa in the Costabaja Resort for a bit of pampering or play a round of golf at the El Cortes Gary Player Signature Golf Club. Round off your day sampling the many cocktail bars along the Malecon and be entertained by a mariachi band over dinner.
