Wild About Whales 1 Week, 2 Eco-Camps, 9+ species of whales

This is the perfect itinerary to experience whales on both sides of the peninsula. Fly into Cabo San Lucas and jump on our private charter flight to San Ignacio Lagoon, a whale watcher’s paradise, where Pacific gray whales approach you! The lagoon forms part of the Vizcaino Reserve, the largest Natural Protected Area in Latin America. Our programming supports local research efforts to learn about and protect gray whales and their habitat, as well local ecology, environmental education for school groups and conservation projects.

You will then return to the Sea of Cortez to our Espiritu Santo Eco-Camp. You will follow the migration paths of blue, fin, Minke, humpback, sperm, and orca whales and spend for 3 nights at our beachfront island camp. You will also have time for kayaking through remote coves and mangrove estuaries, birdwatching in the arroyos  and relaxing beach strolls. Enjoy delicious catered meals prepared with fresh local ingredients.
