Gray Whale and Whale Shark Watching
Gray Whale watching takes place at three calving lagoons on the Pacific coast of Baja California. The southernmost lagoon is Magdalena Bay, further north are San Ignacio lagoon and Ojo de Liebre lagoon, formerly known as Scammon’s Lagoon.
The whale watching season runs generally from the end of January through to the end of March. Climate alterations such as the El Niño and La Niña phenomena, or the impact of tropical storms during late summer on the lagoons, may influence in a significant way the arrival- and departure - dates and the number of Gray Whales visiting Baja California Sur. Because of this we may also very well have considerable presence of Gray Whales in the lagoon as early as December as late as April.
Whale Sharks on the other hand are present from June to September in Bahía de los Ángeles (Angels’ Bay), and from December to March in the bay of La Paz. Again, atypical climate alteration may affect the beginning and ending of these seasons, but as a local company we are well aware of the prevailing climate conditions and of any emerging tendencies.
