Great Whales Of Mexico’S Pacific Coast (Wildlife Worldwide)

From: £Contact us

Come face to face with grey whales in San Ignacio Lagoon, see highly endangered Guadalupe fur seals and observe blue, sperm, Bryde’s and humpback whales on this trip of a lifetime on board the Searcher.

The rugged desert peninsula of Baja California is more than 1,250 kilometres long and its west coast is bathed by the cool, nutrient-rich waters of the Pacific Ocean. The incredible diversity of marine life that exists here includes whales, dolphins, turtles, seals, birds and over 900 species of fish. It is the place to see grey whales at close quarters in their breeding lagoons, and we also hope to see playful humpback whales breaching, along with blue whales, the largest mammals of all.

This exclusive voyage travels to Baja's spectacular Pacific coast at a time when a variety of whale species congregate there, with one of the highlights being two days in San Ignacio Lagoon, with extraordinarily close encounters with the world's friendliest whales - the Pacific grey.

The Searcher, a 28-metre vessel with a friendly crew of seven, is the perfect choice for this whale watching adventure, and the captain has been operating in Baja for over 30 years, with a strong focus on responsible whale watching. During your week on board, enjoy activities such as snorkelling, hiking, birding walks and whale watching, each supported by the expertise of on-board guides.
