6 Day Guided Bus Expedition to San Ignacio Lagoon

Gray Whale breeding and mating lagoon

Join our fully guided overnight bus trip from San Diego to San Ignacio Lagoon as we travel in relative comfort aboard ABC bus lines from Tijuana to San Ignacio. Our experienced Baja guide will escort you on the entire journey as you experience land based travel through old Mexico. You’ll spend four days and three nights at Campo Cortez base camp, our state of the art “off the grid” solar and wind powered eco-lodge and experience 6 whale watching trips during your stay.

Days are spent whale watching, kayaking and beachcombing while evenings are spent in the company of our local lagoon resident staff in our eco-lodge discussing the days events and enjoying informal lectures from our staff and resident guides. While transiting through the village of San Ignacio we’ll visit the 17th century Jesuit mission of San Ignacio & visit the local museum where exhibitions of prehistoric petroglyphs (cave paintings) are seen from the local Sierra de Los Giagantes mountain range.

At our  solar and wind powered eco-lodge you’ll enjoy the hospitality, friendliness and local knowledge of our lagoon resident staff and guides. Two whale watching trips are offered daily while other activities include naturalist led tide pool excursions, kayaking the mangrove estuaries, bird watching, beach combing or just enjoy watching the wildlife in the tidal zones as coyotes hunt clams and a variety of migratory birds feed on small fish and seagrass. Watching the wildlife activity in the tidal zone is truly an epic event in itself.

Witness up close the splendor of these majestic giants as proud mothers with newborn calves approach our boats to show off their 14 foot, two ton babies while young males pass below us seeking out mature females to begin the cycle of life in the lagoon once more.

San Ignacio lagoon is truly a unique place and is the only Gray Whale birthing lagoon in the world that has been left untouched by man and has a local community striving to keep the lagoon a sacred and protected sanctuary for these magnificent giants.
