Thanks to the geographic characteristics of Baja California we can find big variety of whales and dolphins, named “cetaceans”. There is no doubt that we are in one of the best places of the earth to watch this animals. Although this group of animals don’t stay together in the same place, the ocean is an enormous place and each bay or lagoon provides different conditions were this animal can either feed or reproduce.
To get to those wild places we need to drive several hours were this animals get together in big groups. Once we are in the bays we will switch from the van to a boat to navigate.
As marine biologist we have learn were to spot this animals according to the actual forecast and seasonal conditions, that way we can show you how calm this creatures are in the sea.
You and the animal will have a big smile in your faces due that we provide part of your payment to marine biologist who are trying to preserve this animals.
