Baja: Drink It In

 
Each year California gray whales pause during their migrations to birth and nurse their calves in the lagoons on the Pacific side of Baja California. In the morning, head out in local pangas with naturalists and local guides for rare opportunities to observe them at water level. Not only are we often rewarded with a close encounter of calves and watchful mothers, mere feet away, but often we’ll experience heart-touching eye contact with playful calves surfacing to interact with us. Encounters with these marvelous creatures don't end there as we head into the Sea of Cortez, where magical moments continue with possible sightings of other whale species and dolphins. Discover some of the wild Sea of Cortez islands this operator's been exploring for 30+ years, mapping out biodiverse hotspots that teem with life on land and under the sea.

    • You'll be amazed by the whales' startlingly friendly behavior including mothers introducing you to their babies! Experts say this is learned behavior due to Baja's special regulations protecting the whales.
    • Your marine experiences are complimented by exploring the charming, mazelike streets of La Paz and old Loreto.
    • This operator knows the ins and outs of this area and where to find mama whales. Highly recommended!

My clients always come back raving about their whale encounters. There's nothing quite like being in the presence of these new mothers who are trusting you to pet their babies. What an experience!
