Mexico’s Baja California is home to one of the world’s most unique whale encounters. After summers feeding in Alaska, gray whales head to the San Ignacio Lagoon in Baja to give birth and nurse their calves. For an unknown reason, some gray whales are curious and crave human interaction. When and how they interact with us is up to them, but they frequently approach the pangas (small boats) to be caressed, stroked, and even kissed. We’ll also explore the Mechudo Corridor between La Paz and Loreto in search of blue whales and their calves, plus potential sightings of humpbacks, huge pods of dolphins, giant fin-back whales, and, if we’re lucky, orcas and sperm whales.
