3/4 Day Magdalena Bay Whale Watching

3/4 Day Magdalena Bay Whale Watching, Mexico - Dive Discovery

Magdalena Bay is a series of lagoons that are sheltered from the Pacific Ocean. This is where the California Gray Whale mate and bear their young, January through March. Hundreds of gray whales’ come to these protected waters after traveling over 5000 miles from the Bering Strait.

On this tour, you can observe the gray whales and discover Magdalena Bay's diverse ecosystem: sand dunes, desert flora and mangrove-lined estuaries. Only ROW Sea Kayak Adventures has exclusive permission to camp on the island. This whale watching tour includes three or four-days at a safari-style base camp situated on a secluded beach at the center of whale activity.

The area around the camp has the highest concentration of whales in Baja. Each day motorized skiffs take you to the deeper waters of Magdalena Bay, where whales swim up to the skiffs to say hello. You can watch the whales and their newly born calves up close and personal. On shore, guides will take you dune hiking, to the beach, and birding in mangrove channels - a hub for migratory shorebirds.
