4/5/6 Day Fly in Gray Whale Watching at Laguna Ojo de Liebre, Mexico

Whale Watching, Baja, Mexico - Dive Discovery

Whale Watching Experience

We offer the best gray whale watching safari camp experience in our Baja trip, in the very best location for gray whale watching in Baja, Mexico, and maybe anywhere. We camp right on the shore of Laguna Ojo de Liebre (Scammon's Lagoon for those of you who have explored the history of this area) and embark on boat trips within view of whale watching camp. You can enjoy the walk along the beach or we'll drive you up to the dock to board the boats in our Baja whale watching camp. This lagoon is a favorite place for gray whales to have their babies and teach them to get their swimming rhythm. This already may sound too good to be true if you've tried gray whale watching where the whales are just swimming by.

A fact that makes this trip great, the gray whales gather here (you might think of this as their winter vacation spot). Our guests have enjoyed the experience of watching baby gray whales, just after being born, learning to surface and take breaths. We watch gray whale babies come right up to our boats (as you can see in the images below), sometimes against the desires of their mothers; not to worry, when the mother is ready to move on, she guides the little one away, once she's had the chance to look around and meet inquisitive people above. The adults are often just as interested in the faces peering over the side of the boats and love the interactions as well.

This tour will take you by airplane from San Diego to Guerreo Negro and our seaside camp at Laguna Ojo de Liebre. Here you can watch whales right from camp, but that is just the start. You boat trips will take you out for your up close whale watching experience. All of this will create a trip to remember.


Our shore side tented camp at Laguna Ojo de Liebre is the finest “camp” situation in the Baja Peninsula. Here we provide gas fired hot water showers, real flush toilets, comfortable beds with mattresses, pillows and comforters. If you do not want to stay in our camp, then we will place you in a local hotel in the town of Guerrero Negro for a small up charge to cover the daily round trip travel to and from the lagoon to the town about 25 miles from our lodge. We do not recommend staying in town.

At all other locations the hotels we use are safe, secure, clean and basic Baja quality hotels. They are not resort 5 star quality, but they provide everything an adventure traveler normally needs in a room. If you want to upgrade, please let us know and we’ll discuss the various options that are available, depending on the day and location.
