Known as the Gentle Giants, these creatures visit the Bay of La Paz as they come here to feed in the plankton rich waters. Swimming with them can be both a humbling and exhilarating experience, particularly appealing to the young ones.
Our whale shark adventures are based out of La Paz where we have our headquarters at Marina Costa Baja. From here, it’s only a 30-minute boat ride to the area where the whale sharks are found. That means less time traveling and more time in the water with the whale sharks!
Not staying in La Paz? Don’t worry, we can arrange for ground transportation from Los Cabos or Todos Santos area.

And because Baja Adventure Co. believes that our guests shouldn’t be locked into pre-conceived plans or itineraries, our guides will gladly alter the trip to suit your desires.
This is your vacation, and you deserve to enjoy it the way you want.
But aside from our flexibility or the incredible animals, we will take you to see, the one thing our former guests appreciate more than anything else is our staff. Bilingual, fun, educated and professional, our guides are the best in the eco-touring industry. They will cater to your needs every step of the way, sharing information, entertainment, refreshments and a healthy dose of charm to keep you smiling all day long.
