San Ignacio Lagoon Gray Whale Watching Up Close

Welcome to the ultimate destination for Gray Whale watching at San Ignacio Lagoon, where you can experience these majestic creatures up close and personal. At Campo Cortez Ecolodge, located in the heart of Mexico's largest protected area, the Vizcaino Biosphere Reserve, we offer you an unparalleled opportunity to witness the wonders of nature in its purest form.

Situated at the end of the road on the remote shores of San Ignacio Lagoon, Campo Cortez Ecolodge is nestled in a pristine sanctuary where Gray Whales conclude their winter migration to mate and give birth. This unique location is the last untouched and undeveloped Gray Whale Sanctuary on the planet, making it a truly exceptional place to witness these incredible creatures.

What sets San Ignacio Lagoon apart is the extraordinary behavior of the Mother Gray Whales who approach our boats, inviting us to scratch, pet, and make contact with their newborn Gray Whale Calves. This intimate interaction is an indescribable and touching experience that can only be found here. Over the years, this phenomenon has become a regular occurrence, making San Ignacio Lagoon the go-to destination for an unforgettable encounter with these gentle giants.
