WHALE WATCHING

WHALE WATCHING

Few things in life will have the same impact on you as seeing these huge mammals in peaceful waters, greeting you with their tails from a far distance, or approaching the boats to be touched by the visitors. The serene waters of the Sea of Cortez and the lagoons on the Pacific side of Baja host every year an incredible amount of marine species. Some make a long migratory journey to complete their reproductive cycles others tour around in search for food.

This said, you should learn that we offer two different whale watching tours. Both happen more or less the same time of the year from the end of January until the second week of April.

1) Gray Whales on the Pacific side   2) Blue Whales and Mammals in the Sea of Cortez.


1) GRAY WHALES ON THE PACIFIC OCEAN

Mexican gray whales have a special tendency to seek physical contact with boats and visitors permitting themselves to sometimes be touched and caressed. This unique behavior has attracted visitors from all over the world. The area we normally visit is located on the Pacific about 2 hours southwest from Loreto.

This warm protected waters surrounded by sand dunes and mangroves, make the perfect scenario for this expedition in search for the marine gigants. Where also, often times we find big groups of dolphins and lots of bird species.

2) BLUE WHALES AND MAMMALS IN THE SEA OF CORTEZ

The eastern coast of Baja California Sur has an abundance of food for many species of crustaceans and other marine mammals. You can find blue whales, fin whales, which are very common, humpbacks, dolphins and sea lions. Some interesting information about blue whales is that they can grow up to 110 ft. long.  Their average length is 83 ft. They can weigh up to 200 tons with an average of 120 tons. Their birth length is 23 ft. and their birth weight is about 2.5 tons. These statistics give you an idea of how much they grow and eventually weigh. Amazing isn’t it? In the winter they migrate south, and the majority end up in a place called, Costa Rica Dome. They become so large that feeding year round is a necessity.
