Where is San Ignacio Lagoon

Four Days of Virtually Unlimited Whale Watching

Each winter gray whales migrate to the warm, shallow waters of San Ignacio Lagoon to mate and calve; bringing the world’s most extraordinary wildlife encounters. Come face to face with these gentle giants while staying in remote, beachfront glamping tents.

Above water, San Ignacio Lagoon is an adventure lovers’ paradise. Whether hiking, mountain biking, kayaking or birding, uncover the wild, rugged desert coastline; spending evenings marvelling at the uninterrupted starlit sky. This is where dreamlike encounters become a reality.

Wilderness Glamping

The first of its kind, our glamping wilderness tents allow you to experience some of the most remote, wild corners of Mexico, but with all the comforts of a luxury hotel.

Our wilderness tents have been carefully placed along the shoreline, so you can enjoy uninterrupted views over the lagoon in total privacy. Your comfort comes first, and we are the only camp to feature real beds and fine linen, as well as heating for colder nights in the desert, ensuring you get a good night’s sleep.

We are also the only camp to feature fire pits, clubhouse, and an adult area serving fine wine, craft beer and single malt scotches.

"Baja Expeditions is the MOST wonderful tour group to the San Igancio Lagoon. The whales come right up to your boat and you can touch them. It is amazing. The guides are wonderful and the food is fabulous. I highly recommend this trip."
