Baja Whale Watching
"The very air here is miraculous, and outlines of reality change with the moment."
The Log from the Sea of Cortez.
Whatever attracts you to Baja, whether it be fishing, surfing, seafood, desert flora, cave paintings, Spanish Missions, whales, or the ever shining sun, you will not be disappointed. Mexico's forgotten peninsula, has been surely rediscovered, yet much of it remains a true frontier bringing millions of visitors per year.
One of the most incredible sights to be had in Baja California, happens between the months of January and April. This is the time when the Gray Whales of the world converge in either Baja California Sur, Laguana Ojo de Liebre, or Guerrero Negro. These magnificent mammals can be easily spotted from the shore or the sea. For around $20 American Dollars you can rent a boat and see the whales up close. This site attracts thousands of tourists, scientists, and whale lovers alike each year.
Baja California's major attractions start at trekking in the Sierra De San Pedro Martir to scuba diving off Cabo Pulmo. All of Baja's recreation can be enjoyed at a very low cost and if you get lucky no cost at all.
When To Go
Pacific White-Sided, Bottlenose, Common Dolphins and various tropical dolphins can be seen year-round; between January and April Gray Whales live in the lagoons off Baja California and Blue, Bryde's, Humpback, Fin and Minke Whales move into the Gulf of California. The climate is dry, clear and warm though winds can make it cool at sea.
