Baja Ultimate Whale
Spotter Airplane Supported


Combine the friendly gray whales of San Ignacio Lagoon, the humpbacks, giant fin whales, the blue whales(Balaenoptera musculus) of Loreto, huge pods of dolphins, whale sharks, and if we are lucky, orcas and sperm whales. You will get an adventure filled trip!

Every winter the gentle giants of Baja return to the Sea of Cortez and San Ignacio Lagoon to breed, birth and ready their calves for migration to summer feeding grounds.

Loreto & Mechudo Corridor Blue & Fin Whales

Enjoy unique whale watching and exploration opportunities from Loreto south through the Mechudo Corridor towards La Paz. Blue and fin whales are not just around Loreto but all the way south to Bahia de La Paz and Punta Mechudo. As well as humpbacks and mega pods of dolphins, we will be searching for orcas and sperm whales.

Plus, enjoy mangrove exploration, snorkelling and watching sea lions at Los Islotes, Espirto Santo Island UNESCO world heritage site, beach walks, hikes, kayaking and, weather permitting, snorkelling with whale sharks. 

New to our 2023 Baja Ultimate Whale trips, we are including our new spotter airplane! We will have pilot and naturalist on board guiding our boats to all of the action in the Mechudo Corridor.

San Ignacio Lagoon Gray Whales

After your adventure in Loreto and the Mechudo Corridor, return to La Paz for your private charter flight to San Ignacio Lagoon. We will be waiting for you with a tray of champagne after your scenic flight over Baja.

Baja is the only place in the world where gray whales swim up to pangas to be stroked, petted, kissed, and even hugged. It’s incredible. Interaction is entirely on the whales’ terms, with mama whales even pushing their calves against the side of the boats to be stroked. Nobody should miss out on this experience. 

It’s almost impossible to imagine how amazing these whale interactions are but there is even more to the lagoon than the whales. The camp is nestled in the desert on the edge of the lagoon and surrounded by tall mesas. Venture out to the vast salt flats which are absolutely dazzling white. Go for a walk, hiking, biking, kayaking and bird watching are all additional pastimes at the lagoon. you might see coyotes, bobcats, herons, ospreys and beautiful white egrets. This is the most amazing whale experience in the world.
