Many of our guests have told us that 4 days and 3 nights is just too short. They might have got in as many as 9 gray whale encounters but they are not ready and don’t want to go home.
These special trips feature 3 additional days in camp include an adventure up into the mountains to explore cave paintings as old as 15,000 years, visiting the serene incredibly still and quiet brilliant white Salinas salt flats with our naturalist. a guided tour into the town of San Ignacio to visit one of the best restored missions in Baja and visit the local museum. Hiking. Kayaking. Relaxing. Or just plain doing more whale watching (available for a small additional fee).
This is the most amazing and spectacular whale interaction with humans on the planet.
Whales are sentient and very intelligent animals and much like your puppy looking you in the eye and communicating that they want you to scratch behind their ears, the whales in this breeding and birthing lagoon will look you right in the eye and choose to swim over to your panga to be caressed, stroked, rubbed (and yes, kissed) and even roll onto their backs so that you can scratch their bellies.
The interaction is entirely on their terms. Mamas will even push their babies up against our pangas to be stroked. The first whale interaction happened in 1972 and just gets more incredible every year.
This is the last significant remaining gray whale population in the world with a second very small population near Japan.
Be ready to create a deeply personal connection that will stay with you for a lifetime.
