Whale Watching is a year-round activity around the Baja Peninsula
Baja California is fast becoming the premier location to watch whales in the world. More than 20 species of whales are encountered around Baja (most year-round), making this area an important center for whale observation.
In addition, whale watching is becoming more common in the Sea of Cortez. The magnificent Blue Whales, the largest living creatures on earth, come to the Sea of Cortez each year, as do Humpback Whales, Sperm Whales, Finback Whales, Minke Whales, Orcas, schools of dolphin and Pilot whales, and many other creatures of sea, land and air.
– Our trip starts at 6am and there is a two and a half hour journey by van to get to Mag bay.
– We stop off on the way in a typical desert town called Constitucion for an authentic Mexican breakfast.
– Two full hours on the water watching the whales breach, spy hop and often get to touch or carees them up close as the mothers and their inquisitive calves approach.
– We then head back to Constitucion for a seafood lunch which consists of lobster, shrimp, fish, rice & salad and back in the van for the drive home to La Paz by 6pm.
