Grey Whale Watching - 2 Day Tour

Join us to visit the Grey Whale Sanctuary at Magdalena Bay. This is one of the sheltered lagoons’ in the Baja Peninsula where the inquisitive and friendly Grey Whales come to give birth and nurse their calves. By Mexican Law our whales are protected and have developed an incredible trust of humans, despite almost being hunted to extinction in the 1900s’. Sometimes they actually seek the attention of visitors as they approach the boats where they play and even come to be petted. They display a unique behavior here and close interactions with these gentle giants will stay in your dreams forever.

Puerto Lopez Mateos is our departure point into the Lagoon of Magdalena Bay, it’s a nature lovers dream, not only for the incredible population of Grey Whales, but dolphins, coyotes, egrets, ospreys, sea eagles, pelicans and herons inhabit the lagoons and remote sand dune islands nearby.

We run tours during the high season from February until the end of March when the calves reach their highest activity and display their inquisitive natures. We’ll take photographs and video both above and below the water and send them to you after the tour. If you do not find the date you are looking for then please contact us to arrange your trip.
