A Note on the Experience

The Dirigo beautiful and comfortable, but not a 5-star hotel, or a cruise-liner. If you seek cruise ship amenities, this trip may not be for you. But if you want to explore the islands of the Sea of Cortez in an authentic way, onboard a classic sailing vessel - welcome aboard!
