Destination Overview

Gallant Lady - Spotter Plane

Baja Ultimate Whales

Meet the most majestic whales on the planet: Gray whales, humpbacks, blue whales, fin-back whales and whale sharks. Lets not forget about the huge pods of dolphins.

Imagine combining the amazing gray whale interaction at San Ignacio Lagoon into an 8 days / 7 nights adventure at sea with all these other animals of Baja and your own spotter plane to absolutely maximize your encounters.

Starting with humpback whale watching off Cabo, swimming with whale sharks off La Paz, a lovely beach lunch on UNESCO World Heritage Site Isla Espiritu Santo, snorkelling with sea lions, and then being picked up by our 116-ft expedition yacht for cocktail hour and dinner as we sail north towards Loreto.

Humpback Breaching

Blue & Fin Whales of Loreto and the Mechudo Corridor to La Paz

4 Days / 3 nights onboard, with a specific emphasis on intimate encounters with blue whales and their new calves, as well as more humpbacks, huge pods of dolphins, giant fin-back whales, and fingers crossed, orcas or sperm whales. While onboard, guests are encouraged to take advantage of snorkelling, scuba diving, kayaking, paddling, and shore expeditions.

New to our 2023 Baja Ultimate Whale trips, we are including our new spotter airplane! We will have pilot and naturalist on board guiding our boats to all of the action in the Mechudo Corridor.

Operated For Safety

Operated For Safety

Safety is a very serious business. Mother Ocean can be capricious and unforgiving. We hold ourselves to the highest standards and you should expect and demand no less. In our view, every dive boat should be operated within a certified ISM safety management system, outfitted with sprinklers, emergency smoke hoods for everybody and the same safety, fire, life saving equipment and radios as the largest cruise ships. Captains, mates and engineers should have professional commercial mariner qualifications and all crew should have STCW professional mariner certification. Safety is not something to publish in a brochure. It’s part of our DNA. A cornerstone of our culture. Something that we have been living by for every day of the last 30 years.
