Each year, 300 magnificent gray whales conclude their 5,000-mile-long trip from the frigid waters near the Alaskan Coast and reach the warm and shallow waters of Magdalena Bay that serves as a nursery for the recently born calves.
Gray whales are remarkable animals to appreciate in person, and because they exhibit a few key differences from many other whales, they offer a unique treat for eco-tourists and nature lovers. For example, they love interacting with humans and it is not uncommon for a gray whale to come out of the water to be petted.
But you don’t have to read about these amazing animals; you can see them in person by joining Baja Adventure Co. for one of our whale-watching tours. This is really the only way to appreciate these animals fully.
Your trip will begin with our courteous and friendly staff picking you up from your hotel in La Paz. We’ll then take you on a comfortable 3hr ride across the glorious desert landscape, before arriving in Lopez Mateos, situated right on Magbay. We’ll pull right up to the dock and welcome you aboard your boat.
But you won’t be alone on the boat – our experienced and certified local guides will join you and do everything they can to ensure you enjoy your adventure. They’ll not only help you locate and view the whales, they’ll provide unique insights to the biology of these animals, the ecology of the bay and the culture of the region.
All this excitement is sure to give you a big appetite, so our crew will take you out for lunch afterward. There, you’ll enjoy one of the freshest seafood meals possible, which will include fish, shrimp, and lobster that were swimming in the bay only hours earlier. While the whales will obviously be the highlight of your trip, you may agree with many of our previous guests, who rate the lunch as a close second.
After you’ve finished lunch, our staff will once again chauffer you across the beautiful desert landscape, and deliver you back to your hotel just in time to watch the sunset at the Malecon.
