Whale watching year around in Baja California, Mexico

Spectacular whale watching encounters at San Ignacio Lagoon’s Gray Whale Sanctuary and the Sea of Cortez

About the Whale Watching in Baja

During the months of December through April witness friendly Gray Whales up close at their winter birthing and mating sanctuary at San Ignacio Lagoon. See Blue, Humpback, Fin, Pilot and Orca whales to name but a few on one of our customized Sea of Cortez whale watching private cruises aboard one of our sailboats or custom motor yachts any time of the year.  All year-round, the waters off the coast of Baja California, Mexico, offer some of the most spectacular and diverse whale watching opportunities in the world because of its nutrient rich waters.
