Western USA & Mexico Cruises

The Pacific coast of the USA and Mexico is tailor made for fun and exploration. There are three very different areas for this region - the Mexican riviera is busy and fun with resorts and long sandy beaches while cruises that go as far as Alaska are heading to some of the most dramatic scenery on earth - finally the sea of Cortez is the ideal place to idle, go whale watching or simply look forward to your next port of call.

When to Visit?
This is a popular destination all year round, but the best time to visit is generally considered to be between November and March when the temperatures are slightly lower than in summer. Cruises to the Pacific Northwest will sail in May and September.

Selected Mexican Riveira Cruises

Mexican Riviera

Cruising to or from Los Angeles or San Diego, a cruise along the Mexican Riviera is all about watersports, beaches and fun. Generally attracting a younger crowd, these cruises will call into Ensenada, situated just on the Mexican border, sophisticated Cabo San Lucas, sopping highlight Mazatlan and the resorts of Zihuatanejo and Puerto Vallarta. Usually the furthest south these cruises will head is to Acapulco, famous for beaches, nightlife and daring cliff-diving.

Pacific Northwest

Cruises sailing this route will usually be heading to or from Alaska at the start or end of the Alaskan season in May & September. Explore sunny Catalina Island, Santa Barbara or Monterey on the California coast or the timeless old world charm of Victoria on Vancouver Island.

Sea of Cortez, Costa Rica & Panama

Many cruises will just trace a coastal route to the better known resorts, however there are some cruises which set a more adventurous course, following the coast of Baja California where whales swim, and down to the sheltered Sea of Cortez, dotted with tiny islands. Heading south the offshore islands and exotic jungles of Panama and Costa Rica host a huge variety of wildlife.
