Natural History Expeditions

Each year, OSU Marine Mammal Institute Director Bruce Mate and his wife, Mary Lou, host natural history expeditions to San Ignacio Lagoon in Baja, California. They have been going to Baja every spring for thirty years. From time to time, Dr. Mate also leads excursions to other areas of the world where people can safely see marine mammals and birds at close range in their native habitats. Previous trips have included Southeast Alaska, the Sea of Cortez, the Galapagos Islands, and Antarctica.

Why travel with us? Because we have the most confidence. A natural history expedition is a very different experience than a regular cruise. There are fewer passengers, more stops, more nature, more memories. If you are interested in finding out more, click on the links below.
