Whale Watching in Baja California Advice

As whale watching experts, we have a few suggestions to help you maximize your whale experience:

1. The night before your whale-watching dreams come true, charge your camera or mobile phone so that you don´t run out of battery on the boat. You´ll be taking a lot of photos and probably a few videos to capture the moment.

2. When you board the ship, put your mobile phone on airplane mode, as it uses less battery.

3. Be sure to take a towel with you.

4. Have a light sweater with you, as the boat can get a little chilly.

5. Wear a hat and sunscreen for protection. It´s quite easy to get sunburnt on a ship.

When to Visit Baja California

If you love whales, and wildlife the best times to visit Baja California are between December and April, which is why the Whale Watching Safari operates from December 15th through to April 15th. It is during this time that thousands of whales, including blue whales, humpbacks, and gray whales, return to the shores of Baja California to reproduce and socialize. It is here where you could see a whale takes its first breath.

Why Choose Us?

We use ´whale friendly´ boats, so as not to harm the breeding ground and water, which are vital to the survival of the whale population. You´ll be spending your memory-making time on an inflatable motorboat, which will provide you with maximum visibility to enjoy the wonders of the marine animal kingdom.
