Whale-Watching in Baja California
Concierge.com's insider take:
More than 20 species of whales frequent Baja's sea through the year. But the big whale show runs from January to March, when thousands of pregnant gray whales migrate to protected lagoons off Baja's southern Pacific shores to give birth. Hundreds of humans eager to come eyeball to eyeball with a baby leviathan quickly follow, setting up camp or staying in small basic hotels near San Ignacio Lagoon and Magdalena Bay on Baja's Pacific coast. Baja Expeditions and Baja Discovery run buses from San Diego and charter flights from Mexico to San Ignacio, and have camps close to whale-watching sites. Aero Calafia offers day trips to Magdalena Bay with flights from Los Cabos. Loreto is a prime whale-watching spot year round, with humpbacks, blue whales, finbacks, and orcas appearing in February and March. Antares GEA, a nonprofit environmental group, runs day-long whale-watching trips in Loreto.—Maribeth Mellin
