Whale watching in Mexico
Between February and March, gray whale sightings are practically guaranteed in the serene Baja Californian bay of Magdalena and San Ignacio, among the world's most popular whale watching sites. The gentle leviathans migrate 20,000km from Alaska to calve and nurture their young in warmer Mexican climes, where they are surprisingly receptive to human presence.
An unforgettable boat trip will take you into waters seething with splashing tails and spouting blowholes as crowds of these sociable creatures come up to the surface for a good look at their visitors. With luck you may also see humpbacks or blue whales.
