Commercially chartered flight to San Ignacio Lagoon

5 Day Air Trip Overview

Trip overview

Our five day group aircraft trip is fast becoming our most popular trip. A great way to see the Baja landscape scenery from the air and it only takes two hours via our commercially chartered aircraft. Our trip begins in San Diego where we board our charter bus at the hotel that takes us to the airport for departure to San Ignacio Lagoon. You spend four days and four nights at our solar eco-lodge base camp in comfortable cabins with views of the lagoon. Enjoy whale watching twice daily with our local guides and boat captains who are residents of the lagoon and share with you their local knowledge of this peaceful Gray Whale sanctuary.

 

Whale watching at San Ignacio Lagoon

Join us at our remote safari style base camp along the shores of San Ignacio Lagoon where Gray Whales have migrated to for thousands of generations. Witness up close the splendor of these majestic giants as proud mothers with newborn calves approach our boats to show off their fourteen 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 location 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.
