What to Expect on this trip, and what will you see?

In early December, the Gray Whales begin their migration south. From January to April, they are living, breeding, and birthing their young in the San Ignacio Lagoon of Southern Baja California. It is a guarantee you will see the whales on this trip. We can’t guarantee you’ll touch one, but they will come very close to the boat. The entire lagoon is a protected area with only a certain number of boats allowed on the lagoon for whale watching at any given time so as not to disturb the natural environment, and breeding areas of the whales.

On the way down to San Ignacio, we’ll visit well known places in Baja such as the inn and restaurant of our first night’s stay at Mama Espinoza’s in the seaside town of El Rosario. Mama Espinoza is a family owned business which has been open to the public since the 1940’s. They are famous for their lobster burritos, delicious sea food, and other traditional Mexican dishes.

You will also see the amazing Southern Baja California desert, it’s gigantic Cardon Cactus, the Elephant Tree. The Ciros Tree is quite a sight because they look like upside down carrots. We will also have a Biologist accompany us on this trip to answer any questions anyone might have about the flora, fauna, and the surrounding area.

Once in the town of San Ignacio, we’ll visit the old mission church which was established in the mid-1700’s, and is still in use today. There is also a town plaza in front of the church where we’ll take a brief rest before heading on to our camp location.

Expect lots of fresh seafood, and traditional Mexican dishes on this trip. The entire trip is an experience you won’t want to miss out on, and we hope you decide to join us!
