Silversea Luxury Cruises A Ensenada

Ensenada is the third-largest city in Baja and one of Mexico’s leading seaports. The town stretches along the northern shore of the Bahia de Todos Santos. First discovered by Juan Rodriguez Cabrillo in 1542, he named the place Ensenada-Bahia de Todos Santos (All Saints’ Bay). Since his discovery, farmers settled along the coast and in the mountain region, followed by gold miners in the late 1800s. After the mines were depleted, the people turned to developing Ensenada’s harbour to facilitate shipping agricultural goods from the surrounding farms. View more

Today the port is of major importance as the home to a thriving fishing fleet, which supplies the canneries that line the north and south sides of the city. In addition to fish-processing, olive groves, vineyards and tourism are other sources of income. The town features a major fish market, where row after row of stands display piles of shrimp, tuna, dorado and dozens of other species of fish caught off Baja’s coast. It is a great place for taking photographs. A prominent landmark is the city’s cathedral with its imposing twin towers. On the seafront boulevard is the Plaza Civica, with sculptures of Mexican heroes Benito Juarez, Miguel Hidalgo and Venustiano Carranza. Please Note: Infrastructure in this port is limited and tour buses may not be up to Silversea’s usual high standards. They are the best available; air conditioning cannot be guaranteed.
