Baja Kayaking and Whale Watching Trips
Our Baja kayaking and whale watching trips combine two of the very best natural experiences in Baja. Beginning Loreto on the shore of the Sea of Cortez we start a kayaking trip in the Bahia Loreto National Park the site of one Baja’s great whale experiences. During the winter months massive Blue and Fin whales are drawn to the feed rich waters of the park. Our paddling trip takes out to the islands through the clear turquoise blue water of the Sea of Cortez with the peaks of Sierra Giganta range as a dramatic backdrop throughout.
Next we journey to Magdalena Bay an ecological reserve on the peninsula’s west coast to witness Baja’s other great whale experience and best known natural phenomenon. Every year migrating Gray whales come to give birth and mate. This is a marine nursery where newborn calves stay close to their mothers until they are large enough to start the long migration north. Camping in a wildness camp on the shore of the Magdalena Bay we whale watch from skiffs operated by ecological guides and ashore explore an almost surreal landscape of sand dunes and miles of untouched beach. The World Wildlife fund ranks Magdalena Bay as on of the nine most important coastal habitats in Mexico and the area also hosts dolphins, sea turtles and a huge number of migratory birds. This trip of exploration and magical encounters is truly the best of Baja.
