Whale Watching in Mexico

Whale watching is one of the many things you must experience in Mexico, bbut it is often one of the most memorable. Every year thousands of grey whales make a migration from the frigid waters of the Bering Seas to birth their young and spend the winter in the warm waters of Baja California and the Sea of Cortez. These magnificent creatures make the longest migration of any mammal, traveling 6,000 miles at a speed of four to five knots.

Once thee whales reach the Mexican coast, they bask largely in three lagoons (Laguna Ojo de Liebre, Laguna San Ignacio, and Magdalena Bay), making January to April the peak time to watch them. These beautiful animals are among the gentlest species in the world, grey whale mothers are incredibly protective and make especially attentive caretakers. Venture into the winter vacation home of the Pacific Gray Whales to view how they blow, sound, mate and calve in their natural habitat is an awe-inspiring experience that will never be forgotten. See firsthand how these beautiful cetaceans have touched the hearts of millions.
