Up Close Whale Watching in Baja, Mexico

The most comprehensive and extraordinary of whale watching adventures is our 8 day Big Whale Trip that takes you to both the small town of Loreto, Baja, Mexico on the Sea of Cortez and the Gray Whale Sanctuary at San Ignacio lagoon on the Pacific coastline.

On this eight-day journey, we spend three nights and two full days at a luxurious seaside resort hotel on the Sea of Cortez whale watching and traveling through the local islands. Loreto is a mecca of marine mammal and bird wildlife to include Blue Whales, Humpbacks, Sperm Whales, Orcas and dolphin to mention only a few. The Sea of Cortez is one of the richest marine mammal habitats on the planet and the reason why we make this our second home when it comes to incredible whale watching experiences.

We also travel to the Pacific coastline to the winter breeding grounds of the Pacific Gray Whale Sanctuary of the legendary San Ignacio Lagoon. From the comfort of our private Ecolodge “Campo Cortez”, we spend four days and nights in the company of the infamous “friendly gray whales of San Ignacio Lagoon” where these gentle giants approach our boats and encourage us to scratch, pet and even sing to them and their newly born calves. Over the years, this has become a regular occurrence only at San Ignacio Lagoon.

We are consistantly rated the #1 Travelers’ Choice on Trip Advisor year after year for one reason, our Staff and Owners - who are residents and locals to San Ignacio Lagoon. We are four generations of family living and working in the lagoon since the settlement of San Ignacio Lagoon. We take pride in our efforts at our Ecolodge to have a low-impact environmentally and the responsibility that we carry as Ambassadors to the lagoon and its many wildlife residents.
