WHALE WATCHING-LORETO BAJA CALIFORNIA SUR

SPRING 2019

Bienvenidos to our Loreto Baja Whale watching headquarters.  Here on this page we hope to help you find the information you need to plan your Baja Whale Watching Vacation. Whether its observing the magnificent Blue Whales on the Sea of Cortez, Grey Whale Watching at Bahia Magdalena or both.  Not only are these tours wonderful for seeing the whales, they are also a great way to enjoy the Loreto National Marine Park and the animals and islands therin.  

BLUE WHALE WATCHING, SEA OF CORTEZ-Jan 25-Mar 20

Whale watching from Loreto is a world class experience.  Calm (hopefully) seas, small intimate boats, and all around the sound of these giants breathing.  Every Spring the Loreto National Marine Park is host to Blue Whales, the  largest creatures on earth.  We also see Fin Whales, Humpbacks, dolphins, mantas and other wildlife on this tour.

We provide our tours on small Mexican pangas with new motors, radios, shade and dry storage.  Boats hold anywhere from 6 to 10 folks.  Be sure to bring: hat, sunglasses, camera, batteries, sunscreen and layers.  Mornings start cool, but afternoons warm up.

"I really appreciate how repsectful your captains were while showing us the whales. They too love these amazing creatures and you can tell that they didn't want to disturb them"

GREY WHALE WATCHING, BAJA CALIFORNIA SUR 8am-4pm

Join us for a wonderful adventure to Magdalena Bay.  We travel from Loreto over to the Paific Side of the Baja.  Along the way we stop to visit points of interest and photo opportunities.  Once we begin the tour in the bay we are quickly with the mamma grey whales and their babies.  Our guides are great at explaining whale behaviors and translating the captains “whale tales”.  After 2 hours visiting the whales and exploring this beautiful bay we head back to town for a delicious lunch of freshly harvested seafood (chicken and vegetarian options available as well).  After lunch we return to Loreto

IN CASE YOU WERE WONDERING

GREY WHALES ARE INDEED WILD ANIMALS AND THERE IS ABSOLUTELY NO GUARANTEE  OF “FRIENDLY” BEHAVIOR FROM THEM.  PLEASE BE FULLY AWARE OF THIS AS WE GO INTO THE TOUR. THE UNREALISTIC EXPECTATIONS OF A FEW CAN IMPACT THE ENTIRE EXPERIENCE FOR THE REST OF THE GROUP. THIS IS NOT FAIR TO OUR GUIDES, DRIVERS, OR OTHER GUEST.  THANK YOU!!

"Transport, tour, and lunch. I didn't have to plan a thing. What a lovely day!"
