Blue Whale Watching Tours in the Loreto National Marine Park

Whale-watching tours from Loreto are a world-class experience. Calm (hopefully) seas and all around the sound of these giants breathing. Every Spring, the Loreto National Marine Park hosts the most giant creatures on earth, Blue Whales. This tour also sees Fin Whales, Humpbacks, dolphins, mantas, and other wildlife. We provide tours on traditional Mexican pangas with new motors, radios, shade, and dry storage. Boats are permitted to take anywhere from 7-19 passengers

A WORD ON DRONES AND WHALE WATCHING

It is AMAZING the footage a drone can take of whales.  Scientists have gained so much information (learn about the “snot bot” here) without molesting these beautiful creatures.  Who drones do bother are folks on other boats who have come from all over the world to witness these amazing creatures.  If you have a drone you MUST advise us ahead of time. We are NOT allowed to fly drones within the Marine Park without permission. Thanks in advance for your understanding.

"This is why I come back each year. The peacefulness, the scenery and the whales. Just magical"
